Moments...



...this week of...

...happiness spending time with my parents, catching up with friends I haven't seen for two years, sunshine 

...sadness at the tragic death of migrants off the coast of Italy

...creating a storysack, some fabric baskets, rows on my shalom, the front piece of a cardigan, the start of a cardigan, lots of peg people, 

...reading The Making of the British Landscape by Francis Pryor, to the children 18 Mulberry Road  by Frank English

...learning about planets, fractions, the Buddhist and Sikh New Year Festivals, wool, sheep, knives, whittling, leaf cutter ants

...thinking about plans for a camping trip that Alice has requested for her birthday

...wondering if I am trying to fit too much into my weeks

...hoping to start planning a new learning project

...looking forward to sowing more seeds in my garden

    1. The peg people are all my children's creation. We had run out recently and I have just placed a big order so we have lots......for now. They love painting them :)

  2. I remember doing crafts like that with our girls when they were little. I miss those times, but as they have gotten older and their interests have changed, we found other things to do together.

    1. I guess what we do together will change as the children get older, I am enjoying what we are doing together for now!

    1. That feeling that some weeks are a bit over busy is a difficult one, when I am planning it I think it will be ok but then when it comes to it.........

  4. Your weeks always sound busy but happy to me. I'm sure you get lots accomplished. I love your peg people! We like to make and paint little figures too, usually from clay but often from whatever is around. I'm glad you're having a nice time with your parents and your friends. I hope you have a wonderful week.

    1. The balance is a bit too finely tuned at times, but most of the time it is good!
