Fran currently has several things on the go:
*House cross stitch – supposed to be a present so need to get it done this week.
*Postcard Scrapbook – Brown Owl says she can do badges at home which seems a good opportunity for focus, so we thought we’d start with “Collector”.
*Timeline – kings and Queens of England
I’m sure there is something else, i’ll have to read my blog.
*Dave the Duck
Amelie is very interested in drawing and letters at the moment, so we are trying to really include her in table activities. Its great to see her taking part.
I’d very much like to get some of this tied up before we go away, specifically the Scotland lapbook(s) if Maddy decides to join in again, or the moment will pass. So that is the aim for tomorrow. Maddy can take Dave to Devon and Fran can take the postcards, then if we can find a “collection” to visit down in Exeter, she’s sorted for that one. I think i’ll sit in bed in a minute and do half the stitches on the outline of the cottage “roof” so she can get on with it in the morning. Would probably be worth taking the timeline on holiday as well so we can use it when we go on visits.
I’ve got loads to do tomorrow; feels like this year has just rushed by. I can’t believe Josie is almost 9 months old now, as long out as in. ARGH.
Weekend really was lovely but i’m a bit aware i was quite stressed. I’m feeling distinctly jumpy and anxious, not sure why, but really was very shaken by the near miss in the car. A fraction of a second and i think we really might not have survived it. I don’t know how we did miss. Horrible. However, loved having so many friends about, loved watching all the happy children, enjoyed the time i got with various people. Thanks to Barbara’s mum and Alison’s mum for having me and mine as well 🙂 Kind of nice to sink into the strong masculine arms of my husband and be conveyed home though 😉
