I decided yesterday to venture deep into the bowels of the under stairs cupboard and try to find some useful and educational stuff. That's a tall order - believe me. I had to move the wholefood supplies, mountains of arts and crafts, plastic Christmas tree etc for starters!

Anyway, after all that I found an old set of cuisennaire rods. Not exactly worth the momentous efforts but never mind.

So there we were, Miles and me, sitting at the table making cuisennaire worms (every mathematician must start somewhere). Then we had one of those surreal exchages that you sometimes have with children.

Miles - Mama get da bones out a another date for me please.

Me - Yes Miles. It's called a stone.

Miles - I just been tinking mama, I can't wait to do a bit knitting.

Me - Really?

Miles - Yes. Get da bones out a another date for me please.

Ahhh, some things are priceless.
