...this week of...

...happiness a walk with friends, a long afternoon play with friends, friends over for dinner, the smell of washing dried outside

...sadness that a teenager I know is unable to make any decisions without his parents

...creating gingerbread men, a daisy headband, a cardigan

...reading Kith by Jay Griffiths, to the children The Six Bullerby Children by Astrid Lindgren, and these picture books*, 70. Itsy Bitsy Babies by Margaret Wild, 71. Henry Helps with the Baby by Beth Bracken, 72. Skipping Rope Snake by Carol Ann Duffy, 73. Miffy at the Zoo by Dick Bruna, 74. Miffy's Play Date by Dick Bruna, 75. The Tomtes of Hilltop Stream by Brenda Tyler, 76. Farmer John's Tractor by Sally Sutton, 77. Cupcake and the Princess Party by Mandy Archer, 78. Here Comes Frankie by Tim Hopgood

...learning about Dinosaurs, floating and sinking, jazz music, spouts, solids and liquids, working out areas of circles and volumes of shapes, ice age, glaciers, erratics, drumlins, rock scouring

...thinking about a friend who is travelling to the States this week for treatment for one of her children, she is leaving three children at home with their father and grand parents.

...hoping that I can stay motivated to do more in the garden this week

...looking forward to a puppet show in our village on Friday

* Joining in with 300 Picture Book Challenge


  1. Prayers for your friend and her wee one. It is hard growing up, I am sure that the teenager in question is grateful for your support.

    Hope you have another lovely week

  2. Thinking of your friend at this difficult time. I know what you mean about the garden - now the weather is improving again, I'm hoping to be able to get some of the veg hardened off. I'm ashamed to say I haven't read any of the books on your list #300PBS

  3. I hope your friend and her child are doing well. I haven't read any of those books either #300pbs
