Fairy Tale Friday

Well Ladies and Gents...I can't believe how obsessed the girls at Teddy Bo Towers have become recently with sports.  They've not quite got to the level of actually competing yet, but they have been faithfully watching the football over the last couple of weeks and have been building up 'quite' a sweat just watching it...but now that the tennis has started......WOW...they're REALLY enthusiastic for that too!!!  They're so enthusiastic that Tammy and a few of the girls INSISTED that we recreated Wimbledon's 'Henman's Hill' just outside the tower.  Initially I was a bit concerned as it bore no connection to our Scottish hopeful Andy Murray but the girls quickly agreed that we could name it Murray Mound!!!

SO......last Sunday Tammy, full of enthusiasm, rounded up all of the girls to start building up the 'mound'....goodness only knows what she'd promised them as they too were very enthusiastic....not too sure who they were all talking about but whoever the new tennis player 'Mr Grey' is he's certainly got the girls excited...his tennis playing must be fantastic, I can't wait to see his skills on the court!!  Even Debbie, who normally hates ANY kind of mess couldn't contain herself and was first in the line to get her hand on the tools that Tammy was handing out......!

Off they went to start digging while I got the electricals sorted to hang the telly out of the second floor bathroom window as that's the only way we could get any reception from the back of the took me ages but I managed to do it all on my own as the girls were clearly too busy with their digging as I could hear them 'ooooing' and 'aaaaaing'...clearly they too were impressed with their progress!!

It took me a few hours to get the telly out of the window safely enough as the girls couldn't see the wee screen of Claire's portable TV (complete with knitted cover) so it was the 50" screen one from the TV room....thank goodness the pulley system for the window cleaning was still operational!!  As I went outside to admire my handywork I was met with a rather disapointing 'mound'...infact it was more like a pimple than a mound....but the girls were exhausted and panting a lot so I guess it must have been hard work for them.  I suppose I should be happy though as they were all lying about on the grass reading the new tennis player's autobiography.....I think it was called '50 shades of Grey'....clearly this man's either having problems washing his 'whites' properly or he has a multiple personality issue!!  Either way the girls were delighted with Tammy's idea of starting a fan club for Mr Grey...apparently he's quite a 'wizz' on the courts!!!!!

Thankfully they still managed to make some cards this week...and aren't they wonderful..x
