We arrived home from Fishers Farm to see a light on upstairs. Hooray for electricity. We were a little over 24 hours without it judging by timers.
In myself I feel pleased that I remembered the unschooling 101 basic of principles over rules and preserving the relationship all the time. I didn't have any firm New Year's Resolutions in my mind and was able to mostly relax and enjoy the experience. That, in my opinion, is an important life lesson, for The Smalls. When I read back over previous blogs and see how, in under a year, we have had car crashes and falling down stairs to contend with it becomes clear to me the importance of not loosing the plot during times of crisis and again Hooray for many of our choices. Co-sleeping without central heating in action is surely the only way. I hope when S is older she will remember us reading "The Secret of Platform 13" under the covers by torch light until my arm ached from holding the torch rather than Mummy being grumpy because it was cold and dark. It is a great book by the way, some say J K Rowling 'borrowed' the idea for the Kings Cross Portal in Harry Potter from it.
