F1111 No, you keep stirring. Cause as you keep stirring, darling, they melt away. Oh look! //Well, cause it//
F1112 //Eh?//
F1111 sticks to the bottom if you don't keep stirring. And that helps it melt away.
F1112 [child noises] [child noises]
F1111 Will we just have a jelly, or will we make a fluff?
F1112 No no, if we will make a fluff or not.

F1111 Are you ready? Here's one for you.
F1112 [exhale]
F1111 Oh, it's running away. There it goes.
F1112 It's not hot.
F1111 That's a tiny little one that's dissolving wi the hot water, isn't it?
F1112 Mmhm.
F1111 Think we'll have any more?
F1112 Mm? Now look at it. It's all [exhale].

F1112 Not yet.
F1111 No but, when Mummy was sanding all that wood today, I'd to wear a mask, cause yesterday I was choked up.
F1112 How?
F1111 Because all that stuff goes in your eyes, it makes your eyes sore, and it goes up your nose and makes your no-, tickles your nose and makes you sneeze. And it gives you a dry throat as well. Mummy should have had a mask on yesterday too. I did today, so I should be okay. But it would be nice to go for a big clean wash. Would that be a good idea?
F1112 No, what about watching Monsters Inc?
F1111 Watching Monsters Inc? //You d-, you know Mummy doesna watch that.//
F1112 //Uh-huh.// [?]You canna[/?] watch that.

F1112 Mmhm.
F1111 Okay. Now, can I have your knee a wee minute please?
F1112 Eh?
F1111 That's it. Now, it's not staying on that bit, so we're going to have to put it on somewhere else.
F1112 No I don't want that on, no I don't want mine on. Don't want mine on. I don't want mine on.
F1111 Okay. //Don't bother then.//
F1112 //[?]Pick them up[/?].// [laugh]
F1111 Now. Now what have to got to do? Got to make a snowflake, fold it in half.
F1112 Aye.
F1111 You going to fold it in half too?
F1112 No, I'm not.
F1111 Are you not?
F1112 No.
F1111 I thought you were gonna make snowflakes. Fold it in half again.
F1112 I can't do that yet.
F1111 Well you could easily try, I think. Fold it in half again. And once more.
F1112 That's snowflake.
F1111 Pardon? //Now.//
F1112 //Oh!// Your one's snowflakes.
F1111 I've got to try and make a pattern now. Cut in triangles. And what else could I cut? Maybe a big rectangle. A box.
F1112 Eh? You can not do that.
F1111 No? //What are you making?//
F1112 //[inaudible]// It's just a bunch o designs.
F1111 Just designs?
F1112 Uh-huh.
F1111 Oh a bunch of designs.

F1112 //Uh-huh.// //[inaudible]//
F1111 //Now I'm going to open out my snowflake.// Do you think it'll be pretty? //[inhale]//
F1112 //Uh-huh.// Want to see my one?
F1111 It's very very nice. Look at this! //Oh!//
F1112 //Wow!//
F1111 Wow, that's lovely.
F1112 We could draw inside it.
F1111 We could actually use a pen and on a clean piece of paper make patterns using it. Couldn't we?
F1112 Not yet.
F1111 Would that be a good idea?
F1112 No, no, cause that's a new paper. Just leave that for us. When we're finished with this one I'll need a bit.
F1111 You going to? Well I would like another bit as well because I'm going to draw my pattern.
F1112 Oh! [inaudible] Look at my design.
F1111 Oh, that's a lovely one. You're a very good cutter now.
F1112 Look at my design.
F1111 Look! I can make patterns with the holes that I've made in my snowflake. That's really nice, isn't it?
F1112 I'm making designs.
F1111 I wonder-. What about drawing round your buttons?
F1112 What's that?
F1111 That would be a good idea too, wouldn't it?
F1112 No, let me draw it, //that one.//
F1111 //Yes, but there's lots of different ones. Mummy's just put them in the box.// You've got a nice star shape. Hold your fi-, hold your finger on the middle. Do you want a pen?
F1112 Mmhm.
F1111 Okay, you can have this one, darling. Now, hold your finger on the middle and draw round your sta-, your buttons. Let's see what different shapes we have. Can you manage it? It's a bit tricky. //What shapes have you got?//
F1112 //I got it!//
F1111 Oh well done! What colour was your shape too? Was it a star?
F1112 Eh.
F1111 I knew that was a star. Well done. Are you trying another one now?
F1112 No, just wait a minute. [sucks air through teeth] Look at that now, oh.
F1111 I've got a star and a triangle and a hexagon.
F1112 Look at my one!
F1111 Oh, that's lovely. What else is there in here? I think I need a square now.
F1112 How?
F1111 Cause I don't have a square yet. Let's see.
F1112 [?]See if I could[/?].
F1111 Oh that's good. What else is there in here?
F1112 Mm, I will need one o them.
F1111 I know which one I don't have yet. I don't even have a circle yet.

F1111 You're going to draw it, okay.
F1112 Where is my pencil? Where is my pencil?
F1111 It fell down I think. Woops-a-daisies, here it is.
F1112 Woops. Woops-a-daisies. [inaudible], will you look at my design, what's that? Mummy, why don't you make that for me.
F1111 Will I try to do one? I've got to hold it in the middle.
F1112 I can't do that yet.
F1111 It's very hard, but you're doing a great job.
F1112 [inaudible]
F1111 Okay, will we make another shape?
F1112 [inaudible] after. What's inside?
F1111 What's inside? Is it a surprise?

F1112 Why?
F1111 Because the mummy sheep will be looking for you.
F1112 How he's not going away home?
F1111 Cause he's out exploring. He's escaped from the field. He pushed his nose out through the fence, a hole in the fence, and he escaped. [inhale] And his poor mummy'll be crying in the fields for him.
F1112 [inaudible] Going away and he's [inaudible]. //Oh what is that?//

F1112 //Mushrooms?// Eh?
F1111 And toadstools. What else has she got? She's got little rabbits.
F1112 What about going to see a little rabbits, oh I'd better take big James on here.
