34, 8 & 2 - 34 hiding places to find for the Easter Egg Hunt. 8 chocolate eggs and 2 cute chicks ready to be eaten.
500 - Steps. No photo I'm afraid as I can't walk and take a snap at the same time but I've been on the treadmill. I thought I would replicate my walk around the lake and did 500 steps. It took 5 minutes and burned 18 calories. I've been doing 5 minute stints and although I've not got any further than 3000 steps per day, at least I'm doing more than I was.
9 - Pom-poms used for the egg decorating competition at school.
2 - Scrambled eggs, made by the boy himself. You're never too young to learn how to cook, even if it is just scrambled eggs. And best of all he ate it with 2 pieces of toast.
4 - Days to the Holiday. The heebie jeebies have well and truly set in regarding the whole travelling thing with the news this week.
10 - Toes. A visit to 'The Foot Clinic' before the holiday. It definitely isn't a beauty parlour pedicure, there is no pampering, (I put the nail polish on), but oh my goodness, I feel like I'm walking on air.
60 - £'s. Allowance handed over to Amy who admits she's disappointed with how it's just disappeared over the month with nothing much to show for it. I think we can all relate to that. She has paid for her haircut, eyebrows waxed and given me money for tights, cosmetics and a couple of other bits so she's keeping to the rules of play and learning it doesn't go very far.
2 - Treats. A box of champagne truffles and a box of rose lemonade tea. Bought by me, for me. Both delicious and highly recommended.
3 - Tickets for the school show. They're like gold dust, so the fact we got one for Amy was a real bonus. Thomas' class did 'Singing in the Rain' and 'Thriller'. The whole production was fantastic with a grand finale of the teachers dancing. Brilliant.
1 and 40 - 1 prom ticket given to Amy today. There's no automatic right to go, it depends on several things, like attitude, unauthorised attendance, effort etc. There are 210 pupils in her year and 92 tickets were given out. I don't know whether that's it or if the rest of the pupils have a chance to redeem themselves. 40 - £'s to be paid for the ticket. And that's before we start on the dress, shoes, hair and make-up!
4 and 2 - Recycling pledges. Thomas' school is vying for 1st place in the borough's recycling pledge competition. The prize is £1000 for the school and a visit by Bake Off winner, Nadiya. We've already filled in our quota of 4, but in a final push to secure 1st place the children have all been tasked with finding 2 more adults willing to pledge they will do their bit for the environment.
And that's it for numbers this week. The kids finished school today and are de-mob happy. Hope you all have a lovely Easter Weekend. See you Sunday.
