In addition to using the text book we have also downloaded the recommended "Flowol" software and he has had great fun actually manipulating a simulated traffic light system not far from Dave's brother in Somerset!
This last week of the school term has been really tough on Pip and every morning we have had tears before school. All the kids are just plain exhausted and ready for a half term break. Our traffic system is worse than ever at the moment and we often find ourselves taking the "scenic" route home! It was on one such journey that we found out about "The Red Door" cafe in Halton and this was Pip's treat visit after a long week at school:
The cafe is owned by a husband and wife team and they also run a small gallery from two side rooms off the main eating area. Aswell as her many other talents, Lynn painted the picture displayed above.
Beautiful wool rugs.
Pip with a much needed orange juice.
Orange and Almond Cake ~ I made this for Chanda when she came to stay in the summer!
A really good decaf latte served in a really nice willow mug.
"Slow Food" ~ all the food is cooked on this gas fired AGA, which means Lynn is in the kitchen by 6am every morning!
AGA cooking is a real art and I commended her on her cakes, scones and pastries. They also cater for gluten free including making home made bread, so I am sure we will be back for a lunch time treat before too long.
