1. Slicing up pizzas for lunch. It's very satisfying to rock the knife back and forwards to get clean slices.
2. Ellie and Daniel sharing a glass of Tunbridge Wells spa water.
3. Alec did his first widdle away from home -- he wasn't quite brave enough to use the public loo with its scary hand dryer, but a tree on the common was quite acceptable. Daniel, who is a few years older and a few years more experienced, showed him how to do it and explained that trees need lots of watering. I'm really glad he (and Cat) were there to guide us -- I didn't have any notion of how to explain the technique to Alec and I'd been dreading the moment he asked to go when there was no potty near.
