Well he got it! the scarf I mean. I wrote about it here... It arrived on Wednesday, which happened to be a special day for his mum! It was her birthday. The parcel fitted through the letterbox so Dylan was able to open it himself. Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of him opening the parcel but here he is at the end of a long, tiring day in London when he went to visit the dinosaurs!
Looks like they had a great time, doesn't it!
Dylan came to my house today and we had lots of fun playing with his circus train. It was great to be with him again. In the few weeks I've been away he has grown a little and increased his vocabulary. He now understands 'too high' 'too hot' 'too big' etc. and he can count to ten, although it is parrot fashion. He doesn't understand the concept of counting beyond two yet.
We had fish fingers and baked beans for lunch and he had chocolate pudding for dessert. That's a sort of yoghurty pudding over here and he loves it.
In the afternoon I made him a tunnel for his train to go through. I upturned the clothes airer and put a dark green tablecloth over the top of it. It looked like a big hill or mountain and served the purpose really well.
Tomorrow night he's coming for a sleepover.
