After a stay in hospital I am happy to report that the Mr was discharged on Thursday and is home recuperating. Thank you everyone who took the time to comment and send me tweets over the last week. Those good will messages did their job :-)

Meanwhile I continued with distraction tactics for the children who should have been collecting shells on a beach in Wales, sometimes indoors and sometimes outdoors, sometimes successfully and sometimes less so.

Five Go Blogging 365project week 31 2013

Distraction tactic 1:  How many raindrops are there on the washing line? Success factor 1/10
Distraction tactic 2: How many different ways can you go down the slide? Success factor 8/10
Distraction tactic 3: What happens when you mix chalk and water? Success factor 7/10
Distraction tactic 4: How long after the rain stops will a snail come and say hello? Success factor 3/10
Mummy's Distraction tactic 5: Drink Rose Prosecco in a pub garden until my shadow reaches that wall. Success factor 10/10
Distraction tactic 6: Go forth and have an adventure! Success factor 9/10
Distraction tactic 7: What happens if you empty the ball pit balls onto the trampoline? Success factor 6/10
