Exploding the Volcano

There was much excitement last night after dinner, when I promised The Jord we would go outside and explode the volcano that he made before.

It's been a while since we paid any attention to it, purely because of the amount of time it's taken for this particular piece of artwork to dry!

Anyway, I told him to paint it yesterday and once it had dried we would put the 'potion' in and make it explode.

The kid was beside himself!

He couldn't wait. 

No particular significance to this photo -  I just posted it for those who want to know how the bump is doing.

Now you know...

I look like a buddha statue.

I don't know why we had a red mountain...

I had envisioned a green one with red lava.

He obviously had a different vision.

So I went with black lava.

Adding more vinegar...

The black lava actually had a pretty cool effect!

And it's almost over...

... and it's done.

Making Christmas Gifts Part One

The first stage in my cunning plan to make christmas presents...
Can you guess what I'm going to do?

I found the idea in a book.
It actually looked quite stylish!
Wonder if I can recreate it and whether you can guess what it is?

Happy Birthday Little Sis

Keren and Molly
Tomorrow is my little sisters birthday.

I still remember the night she was born. I was 5.

I remember being woken in the middle of the night and driven to my best friend Storm's house.
A few days later my mum came home with a very little person.

The siblings
 This little person would prove to be a very interesting addition to our family....
Certainly the prettiest!
The most lovable.
Many times the most annoying!

Just getting you back little sis...

(Actually, I really envy the fact that you got the nice-bum genes! You suck!)
Because of our age difference there were often times where we didn't see eye to eye - purely because we always seem to be at different stages in our journey through life.
But over the years she has matured into someone I am very proud to know.
And I love her - lots!
 See? I told you she was the prettiest one!
Happy birthday Keren.

I love you!
