Middle sister arrives this afternoon accompanied by eldest nephew (3 and a half). I have made the beds, taped shut various cupboards, purchased Weetabix and apple juice, put up the blackout over the bedroom door fanlights*, found my video of Beauty and the Beast, and purchased a small Lego box for purposes of outright bribery. Exciting aunt status shall be mine!
*Who on earth thought that these were a good idea? Oh, I get the principle, but all it actually means is that a person switching on a light almost anywhere in the house can wake up everyone else.
