Brrrr…. it takes quite a bit before Max leaves the heating on high all day – but that is where it has been today! It is SO cold! We’ve had snow showers for a fair bit of the day, just on and off ones, after maybe 5cm of snow last night. For the first time ever, the girls spent a long time out in it, building a “snowman” who seems somewhat triangular in shape. They had a nice time though. Just looking through my blog today, we had snow in February too, so that counts as a 2 snowfall year; not bad!
I’ve been finishing off our Educational Report 2005 today, it’s listed in the pages on the side of the blog. Impossible to fit it all in really, nor can i be bothered to try, so its all a bit perfunctory. Maybe i’ll just start meeting him instead… funny to be doing one for Maddy too, though i’ve done most of it rolled up into one anyway. Kind of compound the feeling of suddenly having a second “big girl” that has just come on me; she has suddenly got a wobbly tooth. *shriek*
Anyway, that is done, bar the couple of picture diaries i tend to add to it; i’m going to do “Practical Maths” and “Ancient Britain” as they’ll be nice and easy. I do quite like having these, if we weren’t known, i’d probably do them anyway, but increasingly i resent having to do anything, just to avoid getting hassle. When we move, i shall take more steps to stay hidden i think.
While the girls were playing i went for a walk; managed retrieve one card but no parcel from the old house and got gibberish that i *know* was a lie from the owners, who live next door. Never mind. Was fun to be out though and see all the snowmen under construction and kids having fun – must get back into walking now; i’ve found a decent new route, not as convenient as the old one, but less scary.
Mainly today has involved lots more castle play for Fran, Lincoln Log play by everyone, tidying, hieroglyphs with Maddy, Little Shop of Horrors (which they moan ceaselessly about while it’s on but profess to “love it” when it isn’t!) and a load more Leapster and Dora laptop-ing. I’ve just spent my impending birthday money on an engraved Nano and there stops the spending. I’m going for a very frugal year 🙂 Josie is toddling about with a variety of cuddly ducks she adores and i am off to tidy my bead cupboard. It is blissfully harmonious at the moment; wonder how long that will last.
