I could put “not much to report” – because in HE terms there isn’t – and this is supposed to be an HE blog after all.
However, have had a lovely day with Beans and Goddards, celebrating BB’s birthday. Thank you very much for inviting us and it was great to spend time with you all. Maddy most pleased to have spent time with Monster and SB; Amelie is considering whether Teeny warrants “sister” status, given the Buttercup link 🙄 Possessive? Her? Nooooooo….
Have taken the big two swimming again this evening; not quite so successful, Fran could only seem to go backwards, but fun nonetheless! She tried breaststroke, which was slightly more successful, she only sunk on the second stroke 😆
Josie has discovered strops, temper and bottom lips – all very funny. We’ve really seen it all before, it’s only funny 😆 She has also, thanks to R 🙄 discovered how to move the travel cot that has been blocking the bottom step and so can get upstairs; she evidently also observed R going down stairs forwards, so has been trying that too.
Today Fran stayed at home with Max and did loads of cooking and game playing; i think some major daughter/daddy bonding happened.
Yesterday Maddy and i spent a whilke looking at some words – the -ook words, given her favourite words is look – she finally “got” that she could read them all if she thought about it and we played for a while with words from her word flowers, building silly sentences. I don’t know who was more surprised by her reading ableness – her or me!
Have come home in ponderous mood; realising i have a couple of massive and potentially disasterous issues at here that i have to face at some point. Not really quite sure how to without rocking a rather precarious boat 🙁 Still can’t really get my head around what you do in a situation where there is no middle ground, no compromise, no way of starting dialogue but no way of letting it lie and staying sane either.
