Dad being in hospital did mean some extra running around in the first few days and so for once, I decided to be eminently sensible and rest for the remainder of the week.
We have managed to keep on with basic homeschooling of English and Maths, thanks to Dave pretty much running the show at this end! My health has not been great and with that and my job, I'm often run ragged by the end of the day :-)
It has been a half term break in these parts, so we celebrated All Hallows Eve with some friends, had a visit from another family on the Wednesday and then pootled around at home in between. I managed to catch up with some outstanding work this morning and have rejigged my work hours to prevent having to work on a weekend. Home schooling and content writing naturally use a lot of brain energy, so I'm grateful for the knitting projects that sit by my chair.
As always I'm ever hopeful that I can pop by here on a more regular basis. Whatever you are doing and wherever you may be, I hope you have a lovely weekend xx
Little Miss Happy! After years of buying milk in plastic cartons we have finally found a replacement milkman. Pip was so excited to collect the milk from the doorstep, she has never seen milk in glass bottles :-)
Dave has been taking part in a black and white photography project and uploading his pictures on faceache. This is one of my favourites :-)
