{wishing} I was more disciplined about these posts. Determined not to beat myself up – but I might go back and fill in a few holes in the archives for future me. {reading} all the books. At once. Seriously, I’ve got about 4 on the go, I don’t know what I’m playing at. Right now […]

On not going back to school. Staying at not school?

We went out and about today, and bought stationery for the new not-school year that’s fast approaching. None of this terminology makes much sense. As I’ve said, we’ve drifted into an unschooling lifestyle where there’s really not a lot of division in the day between overtly educational activities and games and playing and just life […]

{Pondering} on what possesses people to do unpleasant aggressive things to complete strangers. Bit of an incident at work – nobody hurt, but a bit shaken up by it. Not fun. {Enjoying} the slightly cooler weather. Although apart from driving and sleeping I really enjoyed the sunshine. I like being warm, what can I say? […]

{Watching} Guardians of the galaxy vol 2. Loved it. Groooooot! {Enjoying} beachfest 2, featuring Motherfvnker. (Not enjoying the walk there and back with screaming 6 year old. We never let him do anything, you know, never.) {Eating} custard donuts and home made milkshake. (I mentioned the screaming 6 year old, yes? I earned that donut. […]

Why we home educate in the holidays

I tweeted the other day about how Tigerboy was enjoying a trial on Doodlemaths and someone replied to ask if that meant we didn’t have holidays. And the honest answer is, we don’t, really. Over the years, we’ve drifted from a more structured home education approach with some very obvious curriculum related box ticking, to […]

Swagbucks is a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you’re probably doing online already, like searching the web, watching videos, shopping, discovering deals, and taking surveys.

Saturday Snippets 14 July 2018

This post contains affiliate links. {watching} Say Anything (Amazon) with Big. It’s a John Cusack film I somehow haven’t seen, so we obviously had to rectify that. (We’re reinstating #FamilyFilmNight but next week – we were running too late tonight after watching the football ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) We loved it in case you’re wondering. And I’m […]

Brief reason for home education.

Today in the post I got a form from college – additional information for home educated students. There was a little box headed up “brief reason for home education”. Brief? You want me to summarise how we came to home education briefly? There were a couple of years of research that spun off reading I […]

A Monday feeling Tuesday.

Do you ever have a day when you are convinced it’s a different day? Today should have involved a college interview, but that got cancelled yesterday (not enough interest to run the course, back to the drawing board ๐Ÿ™ ) but without enough time for me to get my head around a different shape to […]

Life Satisfaction: A Scientist’s Guide by Leo Lafferty-Whyte PhD.

There is an irony, I feel, in this post. A few days back I posted about doing 15 days of giveaways. I then failed completely and utterly to even put together the widget for the first giveaway, and have been slumped in a heap of self recrimination ever since. So how can I possibly be […]
