The January Review ;~)
Well – i would say that January has gone pretty well really, in fact i would say that everything has gone well since we became “official” as it were. The rhythm of the week seems to work okay, Moo seems to be enjoying nursery, flourishing in fact. Today she took her scrapbook in to show her keyworker (“She kills me that kid, really she does” quote unquote) and was s happy as larry when i picked her up. Not that you can have the faintest idea what goes on in her head really. When we got into the car at Centerparcs to come home she looked up and me and said in this really clipped, prim little voice “I don’t like holiday, i don’t like little holiday house and i don’t like to go swimming”. Nutter. I wouldn’t mind but she clearly DID like all those things :~D
Scruff has been somewhat less hideous today although i have a feeling i am in for a rough night with her. I don’t think she much likes being unpopular with the masses and she has been with all this hitting and hair pulling. She made me laugh yesterday when i was doing a in-a-hurry-so will-attempt-to-jam-babies-shoe-on-quickly-not do-it-in-less-time-by actually-undoing-the-laces frenzie – she gave me this disapproving look and said “Shoe Stuck Mummy”
I’ve just looked out the window and about 2 inches of snow has fallen. This is not particularly good as we have had to switch the boiler off – it sounds like it has an angry wasp in it. I’d prefer it not to blow up as i sleep right over it.
Today Fran spent a fair bit of time on Joe the Dragon multicount – thanks for that Alison. She really enjoyed the patterns the numbers made and got very absorbed. Apart from that we read The Whale and the Snail and the first half of her Killer Whale book and then did some more sand pictures in jars. We made a couple of large ones with shell beads in them which sort of worked. This evening i read some pooh bear and alice to Fran and Moo. Frans got an awful cough, poor little lady. She is dreadful at being ill, really milks it. Operations, no problem – snot? omg its pneumonia! Of course, i am not a very good role model, but i really was very sick!!!! rofl!!!
She is getting terribly cross cos she can’t read but doesn’t want to learn – its starting to be a pain as its becoming a source of “argh”- i think she wants me to put her “reading cd-rom ” into her brain or something! lol!
I’ve been purchasing merrily because i had a good xmas at BM and need to start stashing cash ofr having to pay tax after this – so far we have a elc order (smallish but “essential”) a BakerRoss order (smallest EVER!) a GummyLump order (cylinder blocks!) a science museum order (gooze) and tomorrow its going to be amazon.com courtesy of a nice american and s-cubed!!! (SHOCKING all round!) Still – i consider myself to have done ever so well as i haven’t ordered enough on any of them to qualify for free postage! lol!
