After a speedy morning’s work we spent yesterday at the theatre watching Hamlet. Very glad it wasn’t our first introduction as was far from the best performance we’ve seen. I kept falling asleep. We had a hissed conversation that it wasn’t a patch on the David Tennant version (sadly only seen on DVD). Come to the conclusion that Shakespeare in an indoor theatre isn’t right, especcially one that was mostly empty. Very, very excited to have tickets for Othello at The Globe over Easter though 🙂
Hamlet did let Sam indulge in plenty of sarcasm about how cheerful it was.
Wednesday was our third trip to Kidzania. Here’s posts from trip 1 and trip 2, showing you how much we loved them. Trip 3 was a let down mainly as there was far to few staff on for the number of children in there (school groups so prebooked and known about) and the kids managed so few activities. They enjoyed themselves and it was a lovely social day. But bit of a let down after the other sessions.
As I’d lost Monday to hayfever brain fog, Tues to answering last minute queries and organisation for Kidzania and Weds we were out from 7 am until gone 9pm. Thurs and Fri were spent desperately scrabbling around trying to fit work in to hours I normally wouldn’t. Sometimes it’s needs must though.
Comfortable morning’s work achieved on Thurs before trampolining. I tried to get a photo but he was too quick and too many other children about. So here he is bright red and sideways.
We had to run some errands after. Which we didn’t actually manage thanks to poor show by others. We did cheer ourselves up with some charity shop bargains though.
Sam complained of feeling ill on Friday. Another day we’d have got on with it but I was more than happy to leave him to reading about Japanese warlords while I worked. In the end we did do most of his day’s stuff just later in the day. Another tick for flexibility.
Neither of us cope well with the clock change and spring time. Sleep patterns go mad, headaches are virtually permanent and we get really moody. Could feel the switch today, getting any form of concentration out of Sam was hard and every time I let my attention wander from him he was gone. Feeling exhausted myself and the smell of the grass when I opened the door to tesco triggered a pounding headache and irritated throat, so it has been a real internal battle to keep a lid on my impatience. I think I managed it. We’ve ended (or close to) the first Monday of the clocks change without anyone crying at any point so that is an improvement on other years.
Been a pottering at home day. Sam made a story jar and wrote a retelling of the Atlas legend.
We read about health care in ancient China and did some Tai Chi.
Sam played with bubble wrap. I would have if he’d have shared 😉
Then he programmed his microbit to act as a Magic 8 ball.Researching hw to use his Skylanders on the DS and playing on the computer took up the rest of the day.
