Easy day today.
Its been cold, rainy and nasty here today so we have been mainly indoors but its been okay, with the odd grizzly moment. I had a quick nap in the middle of the day that lasted 3 hours so i think its a good job Max was home! I must have needed it! lol!
Mostly i have been mooching about looking for what i want to do next week and stuff; i’ve set it up as a separate blog so i can meander about and copy bits of info i want to think about without annoying anyone/boring anyone!
Max has done loads with them all today, including Letter Lotto, reading, a walk, general playing, tidying up and so on. As well as that Fran did a wordsearch (she REALLY likes those) read Book 9 of Bob First and spent quite a while on the Reader Rabbit 6-8 maths. She’s enjoying that even more now she realizes she CAN actually do the sums it asks for – so that was a result of this weeks effort. We had a bit of a general fight over room tidiness again today and in the end i made them put as much as they could away in the boxes that were meant for those things, then scooped up all the crud that was lying about and marched off with it! lol! Fran has a nice wooden box for her “Sylv. Families” (i think i better start putting SF for that!) stuff and a board with “grass” under her bed, if she can’t get it neat, she’ll lose it.
Having earned £7 worth of 20ps, today i showed her that she could give it to me while i moved money from my account into hers on the computer. She is saving up for this
from sylvanianfamilies and as its £40 she is going to have to work hard. Still, i actually don’t begrudge her 20p for a decently done bit of work and at the moment she is managing to earn about £1 a day, which probably equates to about 90 minutes of “doing something on her own” – works for me! Moo fortunately is still at the stage where any coin will do, so she is a bit cheaper!
We’ve been and got mattresses for the two single beds today, having put the girls old ones on the bunks (that way when they are finally slightly more reliable at night they can have new ones and not before!) This means there room now has a decent bed for an adult, Ammi is now in a big bed not a camp bed (and extremely excited by that!) and we have a camp bed and a couple of air mattresses spare which is going to really improve entertaining and should make the late pregnancy/early baby months a bit easier too.
Just been up to read Part 5 of The Snow Queen and they have put their room neat before getting into bed… that better! Fran had also put Ammi inot a nappy and jamas which was very sweet of her!
Oh yes – and the baby is currently head down with its feet in the air and today Fran finally got to put her hand on my tummy and be kicked – she is so excited, she has been waiting for that for ages! Funny to think this is the third time she has put up with me being pregnant!
