Yesterday was non-uniform for Thomas. His class have been learning about great explorers and they were going to the local woods with their teachers and a ranger to build dens and explore the great outdoors. He couldn't wait to get to school and had a fantastic time. Now that's the sort of teaching I absolutely love. Plus, come the zombie apocalypse, knowing how to build a den will get him much further than knowing what a subordinating conjunction is.
I've been popping in and out of the back garden all day for 10 minutes of sunshine here and there. And I've managed to munch my way through a punnet of strawberries.
I also have a new skill under my belt. How to knit an i cord. I'd never heard of one before I started knitting the finger puppets but 5 minutes on good old youtube put paid to my ignorance. They are very simple to make, the only thing you need are double pointed needles which I bought in Bury. Anyway, I rattled 10 off fairly quickly which means the dolls now have arms.
I've even trimmed their dresses with sequins, buttons and gems although they still remain faceless.
I won't be blogging until Monday now. I've had a week of dealing with an angsty teenager who is feeling as though the weight of the world is on her shoulders regarding exams. I've been called to collect her from school a couple of times and I'm just hoping the weekend gives her chance to put everything back into perspective. I'm going to take the chance of a breather as well to gather myself.
Hope you all have a good one. See you Monday.
