Future spaceship engineer

They say that children today are likely to be doing jobs that simply don't exist yet, with technology developing at such a fast rate.

With that in mind, Thomas is looking well placed to design and build spaceships for a living, as it seems that he can build a spaceship out of anything: lego, paper, boxes and magnetix..


Beam me up, Scotty!

Pirates of Cardiff Bay

The Hurleys sailed the seven seas today, as we enjoyed a beautiful Spring day and went to visit Cardiff Bay.


There's a fantastic play area in the Bay, where we spent a long time running around like scurvy pirates. No one had to walk the plank, but it was a close thing...

Marble madness

Despite appearances to the contrary, we haven't yet lost our marbles in the Hurley Home, as these photographs prove.

The children have loved playing with this marble run ever since Hannah was first given it for her 3rd birthday.

In a determined effort to get out of the house and breathe some real sea air, we headed down the coast to a damp and windy Porthcawl. It might have been cold on the beach, but the doughnuts were nice and hot, so we were happy!


Ruth and Thomas looked like they were feeling the cold a bit, though!

Chick, chick, chick, chick, chicken (pox)

Poor old Will has succumb to chicken pox, but it doesn't seem to be getting him down too much. Even the horrible, eye-watering spot on his eyelid seems to look much worse than it really is. Phew!

CBeebies celeb

Alex from CBeebies came to visit Lighthouse Nursery today. Will wasn't too awestruck, and just kept sticking his tongue out to prove it!


Alex even threatened to cut his tongue off, but that didn't faze Will...

Dydd Dewi Sant

Hannah, Thomas and Will celebrated St. David's Day today, and all made sure that they were wearing their Welsh rugby shirts. Have you ever seen a scarier pack of forwards on a rugby pitch?


Hannah did very well in her school Eisteddfod, as you can tell by her 'winner stickers'. The 1st was for a poem that she wrote called "The Dragon". Da iawn, Hannah! (That's about the limit of my Welsh skills!)
