This week has been varied and busy. We started as usual with our trip into the local town for food shopping and visit to the library. In the afternoon we headed to the swimming pool rather than home, it was the only time we could fit a swim in. We are trying to go every week and did not fit a swim in last week as we were away. We popped in to see a friend on the way home for afternoon tea and a catch up.
On Tuesday we joined our usual play date friends for a wonderful celebration of Imbolc. The following day I took the children to see their first play. An adaptation of the wonderful book, Stuck by Oliver Jeffers. It was a perfect length at 45 minutes and they both really enjoyed it. Thursday we visited friends who we have not seen for weeks, it was great to catch up for lunch and a short play.
On Friday we packed up and travelled to see family. We stayed with my in laws for the weekend. My father in law is in poor health and I think we will be making this trip a fair few times over the coming months to share the time he is still in good enough health for us to take the children.
In between times we have been baking, cooking, reading books on castles, knights, armour, Romans, celts, Vikings, medieval cathedrals, drawing, talking about numbers, playing with Lego, play dough, soft toys, making dens, pretending to cook, go shopping and so much more!
