Headstart for Happiness
I have this song on so loud right now that if you were walking past I feel certain you would be able to hear it! I love the Style Council, reminds me of being a child, and the photo of our gorgeous little home educated six year old and her best friend underneath, I hope the choices we have made for her are giving her a headstart for happiness.This might be more of a Phog today - Lots of photos to include! 24 hours on from the last post and I like my emerging new blogging window as, guess what? The two Biggest Smalls are swimming with The Daddy One! I am going to miss him so much when he returns to work next week and has to shave off the "beard" he has been cultivating for the past two weeks now!
There was a parcel on the mat when we woke up. Three Usborne books. Jason & The Argonauts, Tales of the Trojan War and Tales of King Arthur which is lucky as 2 hours story reading in bed last night we read all the good bits out of the Ancient Greek books from the library and re-read all the DK Star Wars readers so we were looking for some new reading matter for tonight.
We headed off to see some friends first thing, they live very near the beach, Big Small took some Barbies and they had fun playing spies. After lunch we went for a walk through the woods down to the beach, the after lunch slot is not great for my boys at the moment as they are both still regular fans of the afternoon siesta so they were pretty grumpy on the walk back and I got a bit cross with them which was daft really as they were both snoring before we hit the first roundabout on the journey home.
Daddy One spent the morning at the allotment waiting for the sand but it had only just arrived when we arrived back in our village about 2:30 and he was starving so I called into our fabulous local butcher for some hot sausage rolls and together we wheel barrowed the ton of grains over
to our plot. The Barbies were keen to test it out and we'll be back later to give a proper test to the Sand building and brick making set Baby Small had for his birthday. "Shouldn't she be at school?"
