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.
The latest DC Super Hero book haul from the library yesterday (and some beautiful sweet peas my Mum bought me this morning.) Chichester library files the books under author (& they all have a different one) whilst Horsham library groups them together by genre. No wonder they are confusing for our Pulborough librarians to order in. We only know because we have seen them psychically in all three libraries.
E gave up waiting for me to clear the table and moved this cutting and sticking project to the floor!!
Brothers do duplo
In the main today has been a home day for the gallivanters in which I have completely changed all the beds , following a den making game which saw them all a little dusty, and dealt with the ongoing harvesting of soft fruits from the garden. Blackcurrants turned to coulis and raspberries frozen. And also sorted out our plans for the last weeks before the schools break up or out depending on where in the world or the country you live. Conjures a strange mental picture to me, the idea of school breaking up, like into loads of little pieces of brick, chalk and text book ready to be reassembled during the summer holidays.
S & E went swimming with Grandma this morning whilst O, 3, and stayed behind and made cheesy feet. Something overcame him after they were baked and after offering them around he pretty much ate the lot! It is lovely watching him enjoy some of the activities S and E enjoyed at this age and being way more relaxed out him doing them.
S rewatched "Carries War" with breakfast and "Goodnight Mr Tom" with lunch, something has her set off on the second world war theme again and she had Grandma for company, both films have really sad endings so I avoided being suckered in!
Operation Austerity has been good today, just as well as two unexpected bills landed on the mat yesterday.
