Chairs!







Bella and I nipped to the charity shop last week. I took the van because Scott needed my car to drive south to see a client. We went straight into the clothes shop, as we always do. Then, having 30 minutes to spare we took a look outside in the 'junk yard'. I can sense colourful objects I think and tread through broken glass and nettles to get to 5 chairs. Three metal and wood chairs and two rounded back chairs for 20 euros! So, with the help of a nice man, we crammed them in the van and quickly shut the boot door.

Funnily enough, the children love sitting at the table now, to eat and draw. Sam showing me what he's been working on at school. "J'ai fait des boucles en classe!" And tonight, we sat and went page by page and by minute detail through everything he has done since last November. Incroyable :)
