Amy has 2 mock maths exams in a couple of weeks so this morning she went into school from 9am-12.30pm for extra lessons. There was no moaning, she gets that any extra help can only benefit her. The reason I'm commenting is because I know teachers come in for a bit of stick sometimes, but I was really impressed that her teacher was willing to give up a Saturday morning to do this. So to all teachers and teaching assistants who go the extra mile for their students, thank you.
The 'bug' has gone but it's left me feeling a bit drained. I usually make birthday cakes but this year Thomas has had to have an adapted shop bought one. Ever since I saw the sweet filled cake Liz made over at lovethosecupcakes, I decided that was the cake Thomas would be getting. So with a little help from Mr T, 10 candles and some sweets in and around the cake, I think Thomas will be happy. He's only having 2 friends over, so this will be plenty big enough as well.
Tonight we're going to Belle Vue Dog Racing as part of Thomas' birthday treat. We've been a couple of times before and the kids love it, especially Thomas who likes a bit of a flutter and practically hyperventilates when he wins. We've booked a table in the trackside restaurant and it's one of those nights where Thomas will actually be happy to sit for 3-4 hours without moaning that he's bored.
