Because i (and i assume a vast quantity of other people) spotted the link between eating disorders and dancing rather a long time ago. However, its nice to see that schools will be adhering to MY history teaching methods in future. Gods… and they think home edders need monitoring.
Couple of photos.

Today worked very well, especially for me as i virtually got the day off. First of all i took Maddy out and we bought her her own cupboard for “her things” as Fran has possession of the built in one in their room. When we moved here Fran had had her own room so really needed a place for all her possessions but this year Maddy has turned into a girl with “precious things” too and had been squirrelling them in her bunk. Now she has a nice solid pine thingy for them. She is very pleased.
The rest of the day they mostly spent with Max. First they made a start on the Family tree, thinking it all through and Fran wrote all the labels.
Who do you think you are?
The bare bones.
Then Max started building a scale model of a internal combustion engine that my dad got him. Incredibly thoughtful present, how Max is that?!?! So while i reposed in front of the pooter, the girls were learning about pistons and camshafts. And after that he played Junior Cluedo with them.
Who stole the chocolate cake?
Finished off with Shrek 2, with Amelie in character again…
and then ended the day with a load of Edward Lear poems (The Jumblies!) and the rest of that Naughty Little Sister. I’m not convinced she is all that naughty really… or perhaps my tolerance levels have been forced upwards!!!
