Max and i have been unbelievably coldy this weekend, to the point where just doing ANYTHING has felt like ridiculously hard work 🙁 What a waste of a weekend. Still, in the interests of trying to do something, we spent yesterday in the car travelling the wilds of the fens and in doing so, visited some places we’d never even been before. What an odd area of the country i live in, i really don’t imagine i will ever feel like it is home.
Today we’ve feebly attempted to tidy the house, i went shopping and achieved forgetting the only thing i really wanted, while inadvertantly buying Touch an’ Go Monkey Ball for the DS. Maddy had some birthday money which she bought two other games with, then got completely upset with because she couldn’t play them so we agreed a sort of random swap with pocket money owing that meant Fran got those ones and Maddy got a new one. Scary game, Monkey Ball – gave me vertigo – it was like hanging over the Melrose Balcony! I couldn’t play it. (I really do have THAT much of a problem with heights!)
Josie and i had a nice time out together anyway and i got back to a much tidier house, which was good. I’ve spent the afternoon wimbling through papers, adding products to BeadMerrily, sneezing and supervising various crafty things being done of finished off. So here, in the absence of anything worthwhile to tell you, is a multitude of crafty bits to look at.
Maddy has worked at these all weekend, again with almost no help. She is so careful and precise that girl and persistant too. She assumes she can do things, rather than can’t, and it is amazing what a difference that approach makes!
Fran has spent a lot of the weekend reading and, after a bit of a break over the last couple of weeks, has now got to the end of the 3rd set of fairy books. She’s discovered she can curl up under a duvet, near a radiator and read. Bliss 🙂 Maddy is desperate for more reading; the next couple of books in her scheme are missing, which makes the jump a bit big, so i might hunt out some ladybird ones for her tomorrow, just for a change. Amelie i need to think about but she is enjoying a trial of Education City right now and we got our other computer back today, so hopefully we can all have plenty to occupy us next week. I so need a better week.
Finally, for those who might like to oogle – i did a page on BeadMerrily of most of the new and very gorgeous stock. Looking forward to selling it too, it is lovely. And i lost another 1lb this week, making 12lbs in 9 weeks. Very respectable.
