Had huge plans for today, but woke up this morning with something horrible going on in my bladder, which i eventually realised was a uti and has probably been contributing to my general air of malaise, tiredness and weepiness over last week or so. I’ve had a pain in my tummy for a good 10 days but was irrationally afraid it meant i was pregnant so have been ignoring it. Not anymore though; have staved it off with bicarb for now but will have to go to the docs on wednesday when Max is back in the country.
HOWEVER. It was really quite a good day. Fran did some cello; she is still coming on fast, must take some film of her and is very motivated about practising. She’s quite happy to work away at something new on her own. I must help her tune it though, it has gone wonky. Then she and Maddy found an Usborne book of a build your own medieval village and spent all day cutting out the bits for that and talknig as they went. Max will make it with them on wednsday, i hope. Not my thing, fiddly stuff of that nature.
Amelie and i did lots and lots of maths, adding up columns and using the base 10 stuff to make 10’s and units columns – she loved it and was very happy to be on to Singapore Book 2A. Bless. I always feel like a real home educator when we use the base 10 stuff.
Josie, Amelie and i did various bits of craft, weaving, sewing and so on; everyone played some badminton and they all played out in the square with the local kids, Josie too. She looks SO pleased when i let her go 🙂 Maddy read a heap of books, Amelie pretended to and i was given long commentaries about the storyline of MI High…. 🙄
Then we went off to gym… then we came home 🙂
