This year feels like it’s been going on a while now, but we’re only in week 2. The weather’s been miserable and I’ve been relying on my phone camera. That’s if I even remember to take photos. I was struggling this week to remember which is ridiculous given this is my 4th year!
On Sunday, we had to do N’s reading. He only had 1 book thankfully, but had put it off until Sunday which meant he had to read it all in one go. He wasn’t impressed and it took ages to finish it.
On Monday, N remembered that there was squirty cream in the fridge and that he needed a hot chocolate. So we’ve had them each evening which is a nice treat, and helps warm him up on days he comes home from school in t shirt and shorts and refuses to put on a jumper or trousers. Brrr.
On Tuesday I spotted these unusual flowers in M&S. I just had to photograph them.
On Wednesday it was more painful reading…N actually chose this book on Heating Food! It was exciting though because it meant he is now going up to Class 2 to get his reading books because he’s now on level 6/orange. We do have the slight going backwards at the moment though, as he adjusts to the new level and remembers that he can actually still read most of the words in the books.
On Thursday, N made a big thing of bed time. He’s been bringing every soft toy he has downstairs along with his sleeping bag so it’s always a bit of a trek back upstairs with everything. At the moment he’s sleeping in his sleeping bag with his duvet on top. How he can sleep with all of that on, I don’t know. But it is keeping him in bed for longer (until 6.30ish) so I’m not changing it.
On Friday we woke to a dusting of snow with the sunrise. That’s the amount of snow I don’t mind, and I was pleased that the roads didn’t seem icy either.
On Saturday, it was another beautiful sunrise. N went up to his new swimming level and didn’t do badly, then went out on the shoot to help with beating. So I had the day free for a quick shop, coffee shop stop where I sat and wrote a couple of blog posts, then pottered round the house. Time seems to go so quickly and I still had the feeling that I hadn’t really done anything.
