|Complete with bulkheads...yes, really.|
It would also be fair to say, that out of the four boys, Rory is most enthralled and, not a day goes by, where I don't find a 'Titanic', in the sink or bath or shower. Often cobbled together from anything he can scavenge out of the recycling bin, he gets busy with scissors and Sellotape and produces... well, these.
Although usually all christened 'Titanic', this week he mixed it up a bit, with a 'Carpathia'! Understandably enough though, upon learning that Carpathia didn't actually sink, she too reverted to Titanic...because obviously a huge part of the enjoyment is seeing how long these, (let's loosely call them), ships, take to sink. Personally though, my very favourite part, is discovering the wrecks of these sunken vessels in the bottom of a filled bath...because if you've never experienced the clean up of huge sodden piles of disintegrating cardboard, quite frankly, you haven't lived.

I MAY have mentioned this before ;-) but I'm a finalist in two categories in the MAD Blog Awards.
