This week has been a bit quieter, even though it was the run up to half term. Only 4 days at work, and an inset day.
Sunday was the second tennis match. I did the scoring (the most terrifying thing ever in front of lots of parents). N won all 3 of his matches, and his team won the matches they played. Just unfortunately that they still didn’t have a girl which meant they forfeited 3 matches the number 4 boy played and ended up losing. The next 2 matches they do have a girl, so we’ll see how they go against the better teams in their league.
I had a couple of nice lunches out with work collagues. One a celebration for the launch of a big project at a Nepalese restaurant. It’s an amazing place – lunch 3 courses at £6.95! And the food is really good. I’m not even going to ask how they can do it so cheaply. Then the next day with a couple of friends to celebrate my birthday (a bit late). It was lovely to get out and enjoy colleagues’ company.
Friday N had an inset day, so we headed over to the Riverside Hub which had been recommended. It’s basically a massive soft play frame but with lots of other activities like a climbing tree and go kart. N had a great time there, and we’ll definitely be back. The afternoon we spent a bit of time at Banbury’s Michaelmas fair. N loves the rides but he’s more excited by hook the duck stalls.
Saturday was swimming lessons and a session making candy apples. Lots of fun and treats to eat over the next couple of days.
