Yesterday my fur boys Christmas present that I ordered finally arrived in the mail. I got so excited, I’m dying to see how they attack this you, only to realize I need batteries for it!!!
So this morning it was off to the shops to get batteries. BUT my boyfriend begged me not to let them play with it until he got home from work. So now their Christmas present has been put off till 6.30 pm and hopefully I’ll get some great photos! So excited!

Video to follow later after 6.30 pm ☺️

So now we have put the batteries in the toy sand the boys have been having fun with their new toy, which looks like a yellow UFO!

Follow up: I’m having problems uploading the video in it’s format but here’s a photo for now

It has gone exceptionally quick and I am still feeling the effects and impact of my trip every day. You might think I’ve been going on about it long enough, but it really has made me think about things differently and sometimes it’s nice and also a little heart-wrenching to think of those children back in the school – the children I taught, the teachers I worked and laughed with, and the entirely different world that I had the…
