Do you know what this is?

It’s a missing dsi. Except it’s fairly obviously not missing. I found it while looking for a missing purse. (Which currently is missing. More on that later. ) Small told me that he had given me the dsi at centerparcs and I’d said I would look after it. I had no recollection of this. Couldn’t […]

One step forward

Buoyed up by the success of my own visualisation post I decided to get the children to do something similar for their own education. The holy grail of home ed is autonomous child led learning where the child provides the direction and motivation and all the parent has to do is facilitate. This doesn’t describe […]

{Watching} MegamindSurprisingly successful, I was expecting Small to say he liked it, but taken aback when Tim said he enjoyed it too. Definitely a good family film night choice. {Reading} still life after life. Didn’t realise I’ve been trying to read it for a week. May have to pause and read a couple of other […]

After a less than brilliant holiday last week we’ve come back with a bumper batch of horrid colds. I even ended up taking to bed for a day, but to sleep instead of read. Which is probably why I haven’t finished my book this week, so the review of Life After Life will have to […]

Soft play.

I don’t really like soft play places. They are generally loud, cold and overpriced. But today I had limited choices, I could have driven an extra half hour and been at home for 90 minutes, or I could spend two hours in soft play with the younger children. I decided to think of it as […]

It’s not the politicians’ fault.

Most of them have never experienced any of the things they pronounce upon. They’ve rarely actually worked for a living (by which I mean a job that actually involves work, where they have to rely on a salary, and it makes a difference how they perform), or tried surviving on the benefits they deride or […]

Flu, envelopes and ideas.

Today I’ve mainly had flu. I’d have certainly called it flu pre children and I’d have retired to bed, probably for several days. As it was I managed a four hour nap and that was enough to stop my skin hurting. Have you ever had that? Where it feels like your entire body is sensitive? […]
