The purpose of this blog

Was to keep track of our home ed days and chat over the garden fence (virtually speaking) with other home educators. Most of those people have moved on, in that their children are more of an age with my teens and I’ve let the home ed aspect lapse. Today one of those teens used the […]

Monday listening

Ages and ages ago I was going to do a shuffle playlist post. Only at the time I didn’t use Spotify, just listened to Internet radio. So I forgot. Then we got a family Spotify account (educational expenditure when you’ve got two kids doing music performance). And Big built me a playlist, just so I […]
