Jof didn't want to get up this morning so I played in my room. Breakfast was late. While he ran, Jof and I made a rocket picture with glitter and glue and cut-out components. The red dwarf has run a bit but it's all good. Later we braved the icy blasts straight from Archangel to go hunting for a second-hand car. Both places we visited were closed, which goes some way to explain their cashflow issues. We have, however, seen some cars of interest and will return at a time that suits the salespeople more.
Despondently, we went shopping in LIDL to get experimental ingredients for Jof's experimental cakes. It's amazing what random things you can get there. He wanted the pen with laser pointer, she wanted all the protective skiing equipment, I wanted more vitamin juice, which was actually sensible. Jof slaved over a hot stove for hours and produced 9 little heart-shaped cakes, all with different icing designs, mainly as a practice run for the school Valentine's day cakefest, but probably also to prove to herself that she could do it. Then Nanna phoned and kept Jof talking for 1 hour 18 minutes.
