I took the boys to the local soft play, only to find it closed due to flood damage. I narrowly avoided a meltdown by leaping us onto a tram to the big Monkey Bizness soft play centre at Centertainment. Makes for an exhausting day because Leo is big enough to play in the main climbing area, providing dad shadows him at every turn -- you might be shocked by how fleet-footed a 2-year-old can be, although it's less a footwork thing, more the fact that he can careen his way through the web tunnels while poor old me has to slowly and carefully crawl everywhere.
Sunday, I persuaded Clara to have a day in. Her thinking was that after a couple of hours of being stuck at home, the boys would suffer acute cabin fever. Turns out that so long as you keep giving them things to do, they're happy -- still shouty/teetering on the edge of conflict but happy. Clara took them into the yard to make a snowman, during the day's brief flurry. We let Noah play video games on the now working Steam Link - which works great. I got to do a couple of hours of sketching.
