Totally married, loves gallivanting, raising a Too Cool For School Trio in
West Sussex, England.
Living very happily outside the box I never quite fitted in.
Everyday I spend 15 minutes chronicling the previous 24 hours in our home educating lives and each post is titled after a great track.
This past 24 finds me feeling much more positive than yesterday's post. Thankfully! We have had an accidental home day caused by everyone sleeping later than normal and laundry and a shopping delivery rather contracting our going out window. We had thought of Bignor or Fishers Farm or a return to the beach as it has been really sunny but none of it came together.
Both the boys generally fall asleep in the car on journeys of more than 20 minutes after 2pm which means a resultant late night for everyone. There are only so many of those on the bounce I can handle!
So S and I read a Wonder Woman story last night and a Julia Jarman this morning. Although she is probably a more accomplished reader than me it is nice to indulge in reading together and helps enforce the connections I spoke of yesterday.
We have had some time in the garden too but otherwise been pretty lazy and done our best to relax despite the persistent builder noise from next door continuing. E made a card for a friend of his and we posted it together on our brief trip out to the butchers and library (to drop off some books that were duplicates from Horsham's automated system on Monday that hadn't properly checked out on our cards.
Only one argument of note during which E ripped a Barbie Petite's skirt - Wasn't all bad as S and I landed up making a new one for her - her waist circumference is under 1cm
This is the begonia my friend Barb gave me as a house plant - doing well in the garden with some pansy friends :)
This is the celery inspired by Lightly Enchanted now living in soil.
Only 6 more working days til TDO is off for a fortnight and our Centre Parcs holiday for my 40th and Grandma will be here for two of those six days.
