Whitstable shopping trip

Alexander had woken up with a big idea of doing some sticking and gluing to make some Easter decorations.

So we went to Whitstable to get supplies. However after popping into a shop that sold all manner of odd things (but mostly toys) Alexander became totally fixated on a plastic £1.50 crab. So all up and down the high street he just wanted to go back and get the crab! We eventually got the supplies and had to go back and get the crab.

We returned home to spend the afternoon all making Easter decorations. That was the plan – Alexander was not al all interested in what had been his idea. He played with his crab instead, Rachel cooked dinner so Daddy was left doing the decorations.

Somehow this was quite exhausting so called for an early night all round.
