Yesterday we had an unexpected little adventure when we went to mail a letter all by ourselves! We think we did quite a good job in the end but when we first got to the post-box there was a wee little problem…we just couldn't reach high enough to put the letter in the post-box’s mouth. We tried standing on tippy toes, we tried jumping, we even made a Picsee tower by climbing on top of each other but we were just too little…the only option we had was to go back home and try to build a catapult or a ladder.
it was quick to find all the ingredients for our catapult, and before long we were back at the post-box. When we got there we played a game of ‘who can draw the shortest straw’ to see who has to go on the catapult…but we forgot this is never a good game to play with goblins and Eric made us re-do the game seven times until eventually he got the shortest one. With the letter under his arm and a big smile on his face he pointed the catapult at the post-box and jumped on.
