It's Your World
Well, yesterday's adult evening social was both affirming and supportive and, in addition, featured nutella cake but I very nearly didn't make it you see we swapped cars on Sunday so TDO could take the trio to Fishers Farm whilst I gymed and did my board meeting but somehow, accidentally, I knocked on the interior light and flattened the battery. The AA were fab though and came and sorted it all out very quickly, so speedily that I wasn't even late!
The daughter of the host told me a great story about a little friend of hers who hides bogeys at the back of her draw!
If you don't already I can really endorse the evening home ed adult socials. I guess if your children are older and you have more free time perhaps you feel your cup of support is full but for me the chance to chat and catch up without looking over my shoulder and share experiences and ideas whilst finishing sentences is very welcome.
S, 7, & O, 3, were wide awake when I returned home. S had made 10 or so origami cats in my absence and O was occupied with his green side blue side dinosaur jigsaw.
E, 5, returned home this morning with Grandma and Grandie and we've spent the day together, visiting the allotment, playing scalextric and duplo and this afternoon 5 of us when to nearby Parham House and gardens for a stroll and a play in the maze and Wendy house. It didn't rain and we had the place pretty much to ourselves for an hour or so. Perfect for pretending we lived there! We were a couple of weeks early for the flag irises and alums but the bluebells and poppies were worth seeing.
I guess it will take a while this evening for the sibling dynamic to settle down. E has had a great two nights away and been a star apparently.
New lego shoes came in the post for O, 3, they were as close as I could get to his old ones which are not now current stock of course and he spotted the differences immediately but is, none the less, very pleased with them!
