Amy's exams are well and truly underway now. Yesterday was English, specifically 2 written pieces on Of Mice and Men and An Inspector Calls. Today was Food Tech followed by Geography. She's doing OK and seems glad that they're underway. It's a bit sad that all these geography notes she's written and used for revision over the past weeks will be of no use any more. It's only me that feels like that though, she's glad to see the back of them.
Every day Thomas takes a sandwich, apple and a biscuit or packet of crisps to school in his lunch bag. Every afternoon this is what he brings home. Exactly what I packed less 2 bites of his sandwich which is only bread and butter as he doesn't like any fillings. Tonight I will put in fresh water and butter a new slice of bread. Tomorrow he will bring it all home again. He won't eat at school because the dining hall is messy and it makes him feel sick. I don't worry too much anymore. He's made it to 10 and is a sturdy chap plus he eats 2 slices of toast, 2 sausages and half an apple for breakfast every day.
Here's the boy himself, doing what he does best. X-boxing on line with his friends. They were playing FIFA 16 and I've come to accept the fact that Thomas would rather let his fingers do the work than his legs.
I went to Middleton with Mum yesterday but had to go back again today for a black t-shirt Thomas needs for his planet show. Another late request from school, something they seem to excel at. Anyway, while I was there I picked up some wool for another knitting fest I have on the go that requires me to make these super cute little bonnets.
I've been disappointed with the stocks I bought. Apart from 3 stems which I've had to cut down the rest only lasted about 3 days before drooping and going soggy. I shall be reverting back to roses this week I think.
The weather has been lovely today and all the doors and windows have been open to let the fresh air in.
Without wanting to tempt fate it's good to be able to say "all is good at Number 38".
