Mixed Bag

Is the best way to summarise last week.  It wasn’t a bad one by any means, if I look at the photos it looked lovely.  Poor sleep patterns and very high pollen counts meant that emotions were heightened and everyone had a tendency to overreact and see the bad side.  Was a lot of effort to keep us ‘up’.

Tuesday was the definite downer of the week when CodeClub had to be cancelled due to computers down but they never bothered to contact us again so we’d trekked all the way there.  I did fix Minecraft on the laptop in the afternoon which cheered him up but may prove a bad call in the long term.

Weds was game designing at DIY club.  Think we were just lacking motivation, it was a pleasant enough afternoon.

Thursday we went over to Explosion museum with my Dad and his visiting friend.  We like it there and it’s one of the nicest places to sit for a cuppa.

We bought a parachutist and a spring loaded rocket gun and spent most of the afternoon down the park.
