A couple of weeks ago I took Archie and Meg out for breakfast and to spend some birthday money that they both had, this weekend I took Jonathan and Joseph. We went to the same place (the fabulously quirky Frankie's Place on Darby Street) and, apart from trying to order a Peroni and Corona respectively - *sigh*, ordered all the same food.
Jonathan decided to teach me how to scoubi, so while we waited, I managed to whip one up.
It occured to me that they could be used for key rings if they were a little more substantial which got me thinking. When we finished, we jumped in the car and headed for the nearest camping shop where I found some guy ropes which proved to be very easy to scoubi and rather more masculine than pink and yellow plastic string!
I then got a bit more inspired and remembered having found this link a while back and very quickly had made a very chunky key ring, suitable for your very own mountaineer, as they'll have a very handy 2ms of cord in case of emergency!
While I was whipping these up, Jonathan had a friend to sleep over in the tent in the garden. They stayed up very late and proudly showed us how many scoubis they had made in the morning! He's now making little wreaths for the Christmas tree!
And just in case anyone was wondering what Meg spent her birthday money on...
