Tonight’s supermarket trip was especially fun when I spotted Dr Debbie in the floral section with a book about a snake.
Dr Debbie wrote the book and offered to read it to me. It’s about a boy who buys a pet snake, which turns out to be a bit of a disastrous thing to do.
At the end of the story the snake dilemma is unresolved. We can email Dr Debbie with ideas about what we’ll do but I’m still hatching my plan. We bought one of the books so we can keep thinking of ideas.
The book is My Brother Bobby Bought a Pet Snake by Deborah Masterson.

Mum came up to school to do a presentation on Australia and my friend got to play being the sun shining on Houston (whilst it was dark in Australia) and then as the earth spun she was shining on Australia (whilst it was dark in Houston). Since then, playing the solar system has been the new vogue for our pre-bed game.
But now I get to be the sun, Papi is the Earth’s rotation and Rafa is the moon.
There was some disagreement about who was supposed to orbit around whom. I wanted to orbit really fast. And so did Rafa.
Then Mum wanted to know what she should be. I suggested she could be grass. But for some reason she wanted to be something else. After much discussion last night we ended up going to bed without Mum’s role resolved.
But tonight we got it settled. Mum is our star. We just had to teach her how to do it because we know more about being stars than she does.

We went to visit Mum whilst she was sampling honey at Phoenicia Specialty Foods today.
There was no way we were leaving without doing a bit of our own taste testing.

Papi thought I was running a bit of a temperature this morning. Mum thought I seemed fine. Until I puked in the car on the way to the office. Then she realised that perhaps Papi may have had a point. So I’m having an iPad day.
Carlos missed all the good shows. He had to get the full wash treatment.
