The sleepers for the garden arrived Friday so we moved them into the back garden at the weekend – very heavy, i still ache! Didn’t really do much at the weekend. The chiddlers pootled around doing *stuff*, Emily played on Education City, which i had completely forgotten about until it was mentioned recently, we will definitely be signing up for it.
**UPDATE** We have now signed up – Thank you for the code Jenny!

Both had fun with the Playdoh,

a first for Isaac!

… and then fun with the shredded paperwork Mick had been busy creating.

Yesterday we did lots of stuff on 2D and 3D shapes, which E told me she really enjoyed because it was easy! She made these models using the Geomags.

We also did another Greek Myth which she wrote up in her picture storybook, did a bit of workbook english and practiced word lists 5 and 6. It was then time for lunch and a trip out to see friends. Isaac and I stayed for a while then came home leaving E behind for a sleepover.

Look what arrived in the post for me, lots of yummy fabrics :o)

A good couple of weeks, long overdue :o)

We’ve been struggling with E’s increasingly stroppy behaviour for a while now. Don’t know if it’s an age thing or what but it was certainly making the whole HE thing very unworkable for a while. Here’s hoping we are over that particular hurdle for now.

We’ve been doing a fair bit of socialising the last couple of weeks (and in the process trying to catch chickenpox – but so far haven’t). I’ve signed them both up to a new Tatty Bumpkin yoga class that starts in a couple of months. Run by someone i found via Freecycle! It’s lovely to have something both E and I can do at the same time! Will be interesting to see how Isaac copes with it though. I’ve not done any yoga with him since he discovered he could roll everywhere. He’s not known for his moments of calm!!


His favourite pastime at the moment is giving himself a yogurt facial and deep conditioning hair treatment – loooovely.
On the schooly front Emily is enjoying lots of maths. She has been doing some place value work with the base ten blocks, subtraction, fractions, multiplication and she has shown an interest in telling the time. She had some fun with this site. I bought a Reader Rabbit maths CD-ROM today but we haven’t had a look at that yet.

I’m so amazed with how her reading is coming on. She was given an abridged version of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and started reading it to a friend the other day. I think she quite surprised herself!

I’ve been trying to prioritise my craft projects list, i have over 50 on there at the moment! Just when i decide which 4 i am going to concentrate on in the coming months Hillary goes and announces that the new winter Stitchettes are nearly ready – and they are so adorable!

I feel a definite need to get back into a proper project as i haven’t made anything thing since the begining of the year except for a couple of cards.
Meet Priscilla!
