Shame the weather took it quite so seriously, wall to wall cold, rain and wind. *rolls eyes*
I’m actually completely shattered (too much staying up late!) so i really can’t face a blow by blow account – suffice to say its been a lovely couple of days, the kids have all got on great and naturally, so did Barbara and i.
Highlights for me were the kids playing geomags together, the games of barbies or whatever that went on for hours, the general noise of 7 happy children, Barbara sorting out the mini hama beads of mine that had fallen over and got mixed up, Fran starting a “proper” cross stitch and doing very well at it, Barbara producing the first ever bit of maths for me that caused me to lie awake with glee, playing with figures in my head and finding maths fun, Josie watching R closely to see what moves she could capture, Princesses everywhere; it was lovely.
What else, our Ants have started to tunnel and its extremely fascinating, Fran is loving Neopets, Maddy has been writing out and doing her own sums, the globe is a huge hit, Brownies was enjoyed again, Fran’s tooth is through but at the moment seems to be at an extremely odd angle.
I’ve ordered 250 bookbags – i’m waiting to see what the colours are like when the samples arrive tomorrow but i may just revert to ordering them in yellow because i just don’t think the printing is going to look nice with yellow and green bags – maybe i’ll do a different design Mudpud bag next year on green.
Tonight, i’m extremely pissed off with my bank who seem to have managed to make some sort of unfathomable clerical error with £50 of mine that neither i, nor they, can explain. At the moment i’m alterating between hopping made and baffled with amusement.
