for my occupational therapy today started, as always, with BB hurling hersel on me, squiggling, squirming, and thoroughly waking me up! SB came in with book to snuggle and continue to read – horrible histories Barmy British Empire, which she has now nearly finished. Downstairs to have breakfast, and then to check on rabbits. snuggling, holding bigger babies and the adults – snowy much happier to be held, Skittles not so, but had to be checked as ok – so far so good! little babies still there, and the pink ones looking like they might be spotty. I don’t think this new litter can beat the old for diversity and adorableness tho!!
Having done that, SB and I did a piano prac, we have decided to be brave and enter grade 1 piano, and now – a few collywobbles later! we had better do it. She did well, and concentrated nicely, so think that the 2 pieces we are currently learning should be ok! She then wanted to make something for friend chloe, currently in france! so we got our made by me sewing book out and the felt and embroidery thread – hooray to having had forethought to buy stuff to go with book!! SB made a lovely bag which she embroidered sequins onto, and BB a cute easter design cushion. she fell in love with that so much that she has decided to keep it after all so BB! she wore her leaving present to C whilst she made it – another present she couldn’t part with. there is a theme here! this took quite some time, with a break in the middle to eat pizza crumpets for lunch – yummy!!
so we then enjoyed the sun outside, fed rabbits, cuddled babies, played on swing [well I didn't do that!] SB did some galore park science, but as getting close to gym, she is going to collect seeds and look at them under the microscope tomorrow. she has taken with her to gym her journal – as it is months since she has written in it, and she is going to start from now and write about baby bunnies [aargh! think she forgot to take pen !!!! ] as she has an hour whilst BB does her class, and she also took a french workbook, so we will see if she did any of that! and another box book – on prehistoric people, which looks like the thing she will be doing!
edited to add – daddy had a pen, so wrote about the baby rabbits in the journal book, and did some of l’art de lire workbook and a schofield and simms science workbook i had forgotten! but not the prehistoric book! now reading me a story in french – emilie n’a pas sommeil which we bought in france last year.
they will get home after 7, and we have macaroni cheese for tea, prob with some more david attenborough! so the day goes!! Had a lovely phone call from dad have been having lots more calls than texts than the otherway round, and he was really supportive of me being off work, whereas i thought he would be disappointed in me. I should have remembered he loves me and has best interests at heart <3
