    Valentines day words of wisdom from Thomas…
    After school today Thomas told me two of his friends admitted they both had girlfriends! This is how the conversation went…
    “Mummy guess what…two of my friends both have girlfriends and even worse Charlie has kissed his one on the lips!”
    Oh really what did you say about that Thomas?
    ” I told them it was d-i-s-g-u-s-t-i-n-g and they asked if I had a girlfriend.”
    Oh what did you tell them?
    “I said no way! I am too busy… I have the whole entire world to see… so sorry too busy for girls!!!!”
    Good answer Thomas!!

    Thomas got up early on Sunday to go and walk Mikey with Ian. the night before I had put some warm clothes on the end of his bed. Sunday morning he came into the lounge fully dressed which include a rather cozy hand knitted jumper which was a “little” large! With hands on his hips, jumper hanging past his wrist and halfway down to his knees he declares to Ian
    “look what I have got to wear…will I ever grow out of it???”
