SUNDAY: we went to one of chris’s uncles 60th birthday, so a nice family day. felt the loss of uncle robert there though… easy drive down and back, and girls lovely
MONDAY: home ed gymnastics session. BB greatly loved and SB not quite so sure it was useful. think she took some books for BB’s session… ballet in eve, but we forgot brownies rollerskating – aargh
TUES: i was interviewing ppl all day, so rather a change. got back in time to watch the girls swimming lessons – luckily at the same time. SInce the general session follows this, we had a family swim afterwards. I was starting to feel a bit peaky! On return home, both SB and BB had last minute presents they wanted to make, so did that with them. During the day SB had made and decorated a fab cake to take to latinetc the next day as a birthday cake, and bb had made some mushrooms from her cookbook.
WED: Chris’s birthday – happy birthday love! then went off to latineetc – sans latin and working camera! the older ones did music theory and french this time as well as science. we had the microscope and looks at roots and leaves and discussed food chains. then we discussed the needs for seeds, and have set up a pea experiment with 3 variables – light, water and warmth! hoping for sensible results folks!! lovely to see my friends and chat too, and then further chatting with gina and katy before home to celebrate chris’s birthday. SB’s judo club had a sponsored throw. she was estimated to do 50, and did 273!!! i am broke – SHe was very proud though, and we are v proud of her for doing so well and trying so hard!
THURS: SB is 9!!!!!! hooray for my gorgeous SB! tots and nots and recorder prac! PM multisports then gymnastics – what a busy day!! we had her choice of tea – chips! [second choice actually as something went wrong with the pizza dough - chris blames me for using up the best yeast at a prev latin!] opened her presents and was v happy with all of them. SHe is such a gorgeous girl and just so happy with everything. i love you SB xxxx. we then played one of her presents [the wii version of olympics], and she went to bed playing another…
both of which got a thumbs up!
FRI: golf lesson – she really is enjoying golf. however chris feeling blurgy and SB coughing and cold after golf, so didn’t go to stuart history group. PM spent mostly making presents of home made soap and home made fimo soap dishes.
SAT: delayed christmas with chris’s family! lovey relaxing day, beautifully catered and organised with lots of happy laughter and fun. girls happy too.
