I blame it on the daffodils. I came over all spring like and bought these today. I didn't do an Easter egg hunt last year, I just assumed Thomas would have outgrown it. But I should have checked. He was really disappointed that he didn't get to run around the house trying to find eggs. It's very hard to judge where the kids are up to sometimes. Too old for a sticker from the dentist but not quite ready to give up the Easter egg hunt. Mind you, Amy joins in as well, so maybe it's something they'll never grow out of. Anyway, this year I will definitely be hiding eggs at Number 38.
Thomas joined the school choir today. Letters were sent out at the beginning of term for 'auditions' but he didn't want to do that and I don't blame him. Anyway, 2 places are still available which means he doesn't have to do the audition part. I can't remember there being a limit on our school choir, I think it was a case of the more the merrier, but maybe it's to do with transporting them around when they do things out of school. He really enjoyed it and came home with 2 songs to learn, King by Years and Years and Radioactive by Imagine Dragons. Thing have progressed since my days, when Kumbaya and Lord of the Dance reigned supreme. Choir means in future my Wednesday's will be a little longer as I don't need to pick him up until 4pm.
I've been 'playing' the flute and note 'B' was my lesson of the day along with trying to make a decent noise. Reading music is slowly coming back to me along with the beat of each note. Trust me, there is nothing Groovy about my musical ability at the moment.
But I shall persevere, least of all to prove to Mark I can do it, whose helpful comments so far have ranged along the lines of "do you want to go in the other room and do that" and "that noise is really painful".
I can see myself accidentally stepping on his toes a few times tomorrow at dancing.
