I'm reading this book:
Whoops! Wonky photograph but I can't be bothered to edit!
I've found some renewed enthusiasm for photography. I'm currently working my way through a 31 day crash course in DSLR's and at the same time road testing Adobe Lightroom 4 on a 30 day trial. Both are challenging for the little grey cells, especially lightroom ... it can take weeks of constant use to accomplish even the basics!
On the organisation front, I tidied the links on my side bar as the whole place had become a disorganised mess and I've given myself a strict talking to regarding the homeschooling. I spent the morning bookmarking interactive sites for Benedict during the forthcoming weeks, as I would like him to develop the knack of independent study for part of the day. I also had the wobbles (yet again!) regarding Pip and school but keep coming back to home being the best place, with outside activities thrown in as she gets older. So right now I'm at peace with the whole thing ... however I can't guarantee it will remain that way!
Benedict worked with Shein this morning. He's built up a good rapport with her and he's making steady progress in his maths. She also has the added bonus of a cat called Oz that comes and sits on his knee and Cartoon Network as a reward once he's finished for the morning! Once home he made the lunch, washed, dried and put away the pots. He also tidied his room, emptied the tumble drier and loaded the machine with another wash. These are valuable life skills and he'll also have the added bonus of earning another badge for cubs.
Sorting and Folding.
"What on earth are these? Girly underwear? Yuck!"
"I'd much rather fold these, my own pants!"
"Watch out! Watch out! There's a snakey sock about!!"
