While practising this new skill he managed to get the lure hooked into the couch. That was a nuisance but could be dealt with. However by the time I had turned around to help him ~ less than a second ~ he decided to try and get it out himself. Easy ~ of course not ~ the lure he was practising on had two hooks on it so the one not stuck in the couch became very deeply embedded in his finger. I am sure you can imagine the rest. It wasn't pretty and required a trip to the after hours doctor.

Lucky for grandparents ~ he spent the rest of the week with them while I was at school. The weekend involved making some jewellery for my friend's wedding. I also helped to put together the place mats for the guests ~ not a simple job either. It took three of us working together quite a few hours to make them all!
