The Birthday Boys by Beryl Bainbridge and ice playing

I didn't know what this was about when I borrowed it from the library, I've become accustomed to grabbing a few books whilst keeping one eye on my youngest, and hoping for the best. Anyway, it is fantastic. About Scotts 1912 trip to Antartica, its one of those historically books that has all those tiny day to day details that make for a fascinating and often funny read.

And coincidentally, on the same theme, ice playing on the other side of the kitchen table. 

I got this idea from What Do We Do All Day. Just put a few toys and some water in a baking tray and leave it in the freezer for an hour or so. Its not not messy, but its only water, so no big deal.
