I love having a mobile hairdresser. She did all four of us today (well all four girls with a reasonable quantity of hair!) in our kitchen and it was such a stressfree experience. We still haven’t managed to recapture the haircut from “The Cast” photos that belongs to Maddy but she looks nice anyway. And Amelie was a complete star about it – sat beautifully still and was SO good. Must take a photo. The photo of Maddy below is from February by the way. I’m still stunned by it.
Day felt a bit too much to start with, left over from last night i expect. But i did have everyone bathed and hairwashed by 9am (impressive!) and even if most of the morning was Nick Jr and hair, with Zoe cuddling Josie, they all behaved very well. Fran even did her writing, tidied their room and kept everyone playdoughing. I was well impressed with her.
After that we managed a cooked lunch and then Zoe took them out to weed the garden and plant bulbs. So that was fresh air for the day. They love Zoe, not sure what we will do without her tbh, its two nice smooth days midweek i really appreciate. Plus it really helps the girls to have someone else about, someone to do activities with and i get bits and bobs of housework and so on done too. Today, Max came home too and cleaned the kitchen but Zoe kept them all busy while i did the mass of parcels that were ordered yesterday. Christmas shopping is really picking up now. House isn’t particularly tidy but hey “its a home ed household” – the BBC will have to take us as they find us! lol!
Then Fran went out to Rainbows and i collected her and took her shopping. Got Maddy the first JP workbook so she can “be like Fran” if she wants to be so. Grabbed a few bits and bobs, including The Enchanted Wood and The Wishing Chair. Kate’s dh came and weeded my front garden today so i went to get him some beers etc. They are such great friends to us and there is so little we can do back for them really.
Anyway, got a few bits of stuff done to “do” tomorrow – looking forward to it in an odd way.
