When the girls come to Nellybert's for a sleepover we like to provide healthy food options - like chocolate milkshake devised from Martha's own recipe, milk, chocolate milk, chocolate ice cream, cream, ice cubes, and squidgy shop-bought chocolate sauce. She forgot the marshmallows. What did it taste like? I don't know. The very thought of it made my few remaining teeth tingle.
Evie turned it down as well, so it was just Bert and Martha.
Slime time! They are so experienced at making slime that I no longer need to supervise. My role is to provide them with the ingredients and to admire the results. And, of course, to clean up afterwards.
Every bowl in the house is put to use.
Thursday night is Music Night at Nellybert's. The girls never heard Bert and Les play together before. Evie runs to tell me,
They're really good!
So I go with her to see and listen and there is Martha getting her clarinet out and preparing to join in. She got a lot of compliments too.
That trampoline has seen better days.
Posing up a storm. For exploring the overgrown brambly wreck next door Martha is wearing a grey tulle skirt and unicorn socks.
