Has she got any favourites?

She seems to like heavier stuff, but Neil Young has been on a lot and she’s used to that now. Fool’s Gold (the band, not the song) gets a shuffle from her too.

Lionel Richie’s character has since developed in a full-grown baddie who features in their stories / games quite regularly. Along with Philippa Oberio (whose name seems to derive from me singing the Filippo Berio advert song a while back)

It turns out that one of the people at my socially distanced drinks last night was the main bloke from the Go! Team. He lives just round the corner from me and is a friend of a friend. It didn’t click until after he’d gone. My other half went to school with their guitarist too.

This is brilliant. Do they know who he is? Or do they just like the name?

11yo: trains (specifically ICE trains, U-bahns and S-bahns), the Phoenix magazine, playing drums, reading prolifically, the Space Shuttle programme, adventure stories with her sister, and a made-up band called The Deutsche Rockers (sample song: We’re Zooming Round The Country)

7yo: bunny rabbits, gardening, cooking, playing the piano, talking to her best friend on WhatsApp, making craft bits and pieces, adventure stories with her sister, and a made-up band called the Deutsche Zoomers (sample song: Violets Blue)

As part of Mrs CCB’s birthday present, we recorded a split A-side single featuring the Deutsche Zoomers and the Deutsche Rockers. Two songs, four minutes, punk af.

Update - she’s been using her soldering iron for pyrography, scorching wood to create decorations etc. Here’s our house number plate she created herself

Nice! I don’t know about her particular soldering iron, but if you can change the tip you might be able to get her different points for increasing the range of pyrography things you can do (you can get special pyrography tools which are basically soldering irons - hobbycraft do them I think, also sometimes Lidl do a set with like a dozen attachments)

Bluey - an australian cartoon about a family of dogs she found on Disney Jr. She is OBSESSED with it. I am her hero at the minute because I found out the second series is out in Australia and managed to download it for her.
Puppy Dog Pals - another Disney Jr show
Books - Julia Donaldson books and Mog, starting to get interested in Roald Dahl
Jigsaw puzzles
Being a dog catcher - I think this originated from Lady and the Tramp. She hides all her dog teddies around the house and gives some of them collars made of pipe cleaners. Then she’ll go round checking which ones have collars, if they don’t, it’s “No collar huh? Well it’s a one way trip to the pound for you!” and she’ll wrap a long piece of string round their necks and drag them off behind the baby gate. She really seems to like being the bad guy in her games.
