As Mrs Miles would say "and so to Bury". I love the way she writes, especially when she has visitors, "to tea three people" or "to tea Mrs B". I may adopt her manner of speaking for a couple of days. Anyway "and so to Bury", where I bought a T-shirt for Thomas' Greek costume, some steak knives, and some bits from the £1 shop. No books today, I still have half a dozen to get though.
On the way home I stopped at Tesco and bought a pizza with the base Thomas needs for his school project. I've also made a start on his tunic and sewn some gold banding on the sleeves.
This was the remit sent home from school. The inexpensive bit isn't really true. I don't have a long gold trimmed tunic in my wardrobe, or gold bracelet things, or a piece of material to throw over the tunic, so by the time I've bought gold trim, gold paint/paper, t-shirt, material and a flipping pizza I don't really want, it's hardly inexpensive. Right rant over, goodness what a whingebag I've become about these dress up days.
A few weeks ago Amy asked if she could have a maths tutor just to give her a boost before her GCSE's. Unfortunately, they're not as easy to come by as you'd think. Anyway, last week her teacher recommended another teacher and he came round this evening to give Amy her first lesson. Tonight she mastered standard form and histograms. Please don't ask, because I've no idea. And my thinking is, if I've got to the age I am without having to know, then I probably don't need to find out now.
I have a little project on the go for my time themed fireplace. It's very simple, I just need to print out the photos below, buy a couple of frames, choose a saying about time and they're done. This is the pocket watch that belonged to Mark's grandad and the two times are connected to Amy and Thomas.
This is Amy's, 7.13pm
And this is Thomas', 10.02am
No prizes for guessing, because you lot are far too clever (remember those Christmas riddles), and I know you'll get the connection straight away.
Bet you can all do standard form and histograms as well :)
