Outside of that today has been another early, 5am, start for the smallest and I. I have survived on way less sleep that now previously in my life but, put simply, I am out of practise and consequently I am shattered! Thankful then that The Daddy One had a day off today and, being Friday, we had two hours of our lovely home ed helper. Today she and the children: made hand rolled beeswax candles, created fish fridge magnets, played word games, produced Halloween cards of black paper with colours underneath and, thanks to an extra pair of hands, I was able to help life this one tonne allotment water tank into position. There are plans for a solar powered pump to water automatically to the raised next summer. Watch this space. The allotment looks all hibernating with covers on the raised beds and the greenhouse all washed for winter.
After a home made pizza lunch we headed to some local, 3 miles away, home ed friends for play and cup cake decorating.
