B worked on Maths and English first thing, followed by some time on the computer with Minecraft. Pip read to Dave and played with Lego. She was off school today as she has been struggling with an unrelenting cough and had spent the weekend very tired and weepy.
We decided to make the best of the sunshine and had a drive to Barton Grange for a soup and roll lunch. Aunty Judith payed for the treat courtesy of a Barton Grange Christmas Gift Card and it was very much appreciated. Benedict made tea which was a quorn and vegetable bolognese with pasta twists. After tea I walked Pip to Rainbows and snapped a beautiful sunset, which I cannot upload right now as I am typing from my phone!
Despite certain family members feeling a little grouchy, we did hit some of our proposed targets, namely the core subjects and the big wide world. I am hoping for a better nights sleep tonight as we will be up early again tomorrow with the school run and taking Dave to the station; he is on his next round of treatment in Edinburgh.
