>tim calls it “la la land” which does make me smile and laurie laughs at it too.

still it doesn’t stop him spending all his time there. throughout the day he can be hard going “tcheeew tcheeew” and swinging his sword/light sabre/magic staff around and asking if I think his technique has improved.

of course with his technique he can slay a thousand orcs/dragons/enemy archers…

my favourite is the magic staff which we found on a forest walk and really does have a dragon head. we found some real amber (tree resin) on the same day and have made some jewel eyes.

the staff is truly magical – I need to try not to say “stop swinging that stick around” because it really annoys him

but he keeps dropping the bloody thing and apart from the noise I worry that the jewels will fall out and the resulting catastrophe will be too hard to bear…

here is one of this pics from the day he found the magic staff…
