Days 60 to 66 of 2015 looked like this for us …
Oh, what an evening we had on Sunday. The boys were playing upstairs and – although they are forbidden from jumping on the bed – they decided to have a little bounce, and also to throw in a few karate moves. So, one knee-in-one-eye later, here we are with a shiner on a four year old. I was completely mortified and totally convinced that social services would be bringing me in for questioning, or whatever it is they do!
We’ve been making lapbooks from the Twinkl website, and this is Rowan’s penguin lapbook. They’re a great way of doing a little project without making it too long and laborious for youngsters.
With World Book Day looming, I decided I’d better get going with Rowan’s Hairy Maclary outfit. I must have had the task on my mind because this is the only photo I appear to have taken!
As a reward for excellent school reports, I took the boys for an impromptu visit to our local soft play centre for a play and something to eat. They had a ball, and I just about survived.
As the cat comes home more often, and for longer periods of time, he seems to be settling really well. I was amused to find him wrapped up in a sleeping bag on the sofa though – especially when I nearly sat on him!
I’m cheating and adding two photos for day 65. It was World Book Day at school and the boys’ outfit were fab, even if I do say so myself! Hairy Maclary and Mr. Twit were the characters of choice and they both won best costume prizes.
Lastly for this week, a peek into a post that’ll be live over the next couple of days. We visited Buile Park in Salford with some of the family and it was surprisingly very good! For a park in the middle of Salford I admit I didn’t have high hopes, but my prejudice was unfounded and we had a lovely time. The boys particularly enjoyed the climbing frame, as you can see in the photo.
