Another fizzled out week

I always have this idea in my head of a nice Christmassy themed week or two in the run up to Christmas; baking, crafting, film watching etc.  Don’t know where I get the image from as I can’t tell you when it last happened.

We were still finishing off bits of work having taken a random week off at the start of the month.  I was full of cold and rather lacking in motivation.  Sam was showing the manicness of someone who had had too much screen time.  I struggled to engage him in most things and he was lacking concentration to do anything on his own either.    One of those weeks to put behind you.

What we did manage was to finish the terms plan for maths and English on schedule.  We also finished off the workbook side of Europe project.

We painted the replastered wall in the living room.  Well gave it a base coat any way.  Then treated ourselves to lunch out to avoid sitting with the fumes.

Sam had his Cub Christmas party at a local soft play centre.

We baked mincemeat crumbles and a giant (spread a bit much) rocky road cookie.

There was an afternoon of board games with Grandad.

Written down it doesn’t sound a bad week so I’ll focus on the positives and ignore the frustrations.
