Fran has more snot than i’ve ever seen, Josie is doing lime green poo and i have one tonsil roughly the size of Wembley which is making my ear feel like it might explode outwards at any second. Ammi is coughing, in fact, only Maddy is really “well”. I’m just going mental over the whole throat thing, its going to make this year impossible to plan again. I’m going to be ill for every camp going, you just watch 🙁
That aside, its been a fairly good day. Fran did some lovely stuff earlier in the day – she discovered white crayons and experimented with various rubbings and felt tip coatings, then made a collage with her favourites. For a while she had both the other two sat at the table with her, all before 9am!
Fran and Maddy spent quite a bit of time doing the latest free designs to hit BeadMerrily which they really like. Must make some more actually, round ones would be easy to do. Ammi and Maddy played with TT a lot, Maddy did some Hama, i tidied, Fran read. In fact, i nearly collapsed laughuing when i had to tell her off for tripping me up because she was trying to get ready and leave the house with her nose in a book. How quickly have things changed! What esle… hmmm… oh, board games and stuff too.
Most of the house is done, so is a fair bit of BeadMerrily stuff; last week i resolutely ignored the housework after Monday and we had a good week, so it seems to be working.
Nipped out to buy seed onions and potatoes then on to Tesco to get Fran a heap of Ladybird books, including these factual varieties of the Read It Yourself type. I’ve no idea if these are reprints of older ones. She seems to really click with the LadyBird format though so i guess we can take a trip up to Peakirk Books and get her some old copies of the info variety if she wishes. They have about 5 million up there, so it shouldn’t be too hard. can’t believe how quickly she has got it all of a sudden; from nowhere to independant reading in a few days.
Did i mention Fran can read now? 😉
By the time we got home i was feeling dreadful, too ill to even post my parcels, so i’m off to do that now before the Nurofen wears off.
