Fran is downstairs with Amelie, using her own method (scrabble squares and a book) to teach Amelie to read. Maddy is inventing something and Josie is playing in the kitchen. Her kitchen, not mine (or um… Max’s, more appropriately!). I’ve even done my parcels and i’m now browsing the site of a posh beads distributor who have agreed to supply me – decisions decisions!
While i’m at it, i’m going to try and work out how to accommodate a different evening clubs routine because Maddy isn’t coping with her tap class anymore (they are about to take Primary Tap and she isn’t going to manage it so there isn’t much point in her staying in the class because she’ll just get more frustrated than she is.) Trouble is, she would happily give up Tap but i’d like her to keep Ballet up (and so would she) and she really wants to give Musical Theatre a go but of course there isn’t an appropriate run of lessons that can accommodate that and Fran (understandably) isn’t prepared to drop back to Primary Ballet to do so, when she is really enjoying Grade 1 and actually Maddy can keep up with Ballet at that level too. All of which means i’m going to end up doing 2 lots of trips in and out for this stuff, instead of 1 and quite honestly, my evenings are cluttered enough already. 🙄 oh well, Maddy will be a Brownie after Xmas, so it will get slightly easier again then, though of course then it won’t be long till Amelie is old enough for Rainbows. :wall:
Debs, how DO you manage it all?
Ah – just had a life altering moment; favourite box people have just delivered wrap-around boxes (Amazon style) that fit my biggest kit perfectly 🙂 (You have to know where to take your kicks in this life really, don’t you?)
Yesterday was nice, though utterly exhausting given i packed parcels till 11pm, tossed and turned till 3am, then got woken up by an itchy Amelie, a nose-bleeding Fran and an unusually early Josie. We did a variety of normals, hama-ing (Fran has finally graduated on to big counted patterns and is currently doing most of the Disney Hama Range, Sn ow White being the latest one. Love having a big girl 🙂 and some Class TV, which moved on to OU style stuff about Zircons, which is what my brothers phd is about, so we watched that and texted him to point out that maybe he should watch Class TV to get his project to go better 😆 Variety of things on that programme about volcanos and meteorites, so definitely educational 🙂
I had a counselling appointment, which would be a whole blog post of curious navel examining if i could find the energy and when i got back, Baby-Flower and co were here to play, so we did a bit of baby-worship and then filled in time on chat and maths until dancing.
More parcels last night and i fell into bed the minute i could but managed to toss and turn for hours again. Honestly, i could so do without another bout of insomnia. 🙄
