Circumstances have meant i haven’t done this in a while. This is just a day, as it happens. Not typical, not atypical. Just a day in a life of having a life lived the way we want it, in the last week before school imposes itself on our life and changes it.
Fran was doing a story at this point, quite happily and much improved by listening to my suggestions for impressing the marker. Amelie and Maddy did music practise but i forgot to photograph that.
Maddy decided to build a long house in Fimo but wasn’t happy with the way her roof strut was going to work. So she baked the house on its own and then came up with a plan to support the roof. (All worked out by herself, including multiple bakes.)
(As an aside, me and Max have a ridiculous fondness for that knife, which was out first mutual domestic purchase. I keep it to remind me i will definitely turn into my parents.)
Forgot to photo some rabbit worship, feeding and cleaning out that went on then. Fran also spent quite a while reading Tony Robinson’s Kings and Queens, but i forgot to take a photo of that too.
More house; too much house but was the only particularly interesting thing going on in the house by then (Josie and Amelie had devised a shop, with money and prices, but i wasn’t allowed in to look.) Did love the process Maddy went through with the house though.
A more normal day might include some (quite a lot) of Education City (but most of our internet connection is down) and more music and a good bit more written work or even a good bit more of me reading to them. But this particular day didn’t, which is possibly good as it make the photos more interesting.
