Slippery dips and rainbows of colour...

Look what Sarah and I built in the shop today!!! Putting together this new marble tower from Grimm's Spiel and Holz was just the thing to do on a cool Autumn day. We immersed ourselves in the colour and the smell of new wood - it was so meditative! It's a lovely thing that Grimm's have designed it so that it doesn't come ready made but has to be built - you can choose which way you put the colours together, and when you have finished pop the little bells into the cup at the top and they run down the slide with a joyful tinkling! It reminded me of the old style slippery dip I rode by the seaside in England (yes, I was 30 at the time!).
