Spot The Ben Bird ~ a rare breed that only surfaces once in a while and that is usually on a hunt for food ;-) A sociable creature however that takes a keen interest in supporting those younger than himself. Most happiest in trees.
Pip has completed both a Singapore maths textbook and workbook in just under three weeks, maths is her favourite subject. She is also motoring through a series of English textbooks as well as working towards a World Cultures badge for Brownies.
I haven't a thought in my head for writing! By the end of the day, my intellectual abilities are zippo, so that ebook that I was encouraged to write is well and truly on the back burner. So, back to the crafting then, apart from the fact that my back and shoulders are mashed and "pain again" is my middle name :-( Heat packs, analgesics and you tube documentaries are my evening companions these days!
We have been blessed with some lovely family days, managing to see both Kathryn and Mary Grace this past weekend. Sara and Tom are resident weekend fixtures as they have denoted St Joseph's as their home parish and so make the 40 minute journey each weekend to attend Sunday mass and stop for lunch afterwards. In fact the past two weekends they have stopped over and also helped with the gardening.
I have perfected the art of gluten free Yorkshire pudding making and these fluffy concoctions are a welcome addition to the Sunday dinner. We also enjoyed a vegetable pie on "Pi" day! Edible maths which was appreciated by all:
We formally made our goodbyes to Aunty Maureen on the 12th of March and I think of her at some point each and every day, whether it be from items purchased by her as gifts, books passed on or the innumerable notes serving double duty as book marks. She was a prolific note card and post card writer and I am pleased that we have kept some of her jottings.
We are well and truly in Holy Week. No tomb garden this year but I am hoping to organise an Easter egg hunt for the kids after church on Sunday.
Hoping to pop by soon and also catch up with you all x
