After the trials of the last couple of weeks yesterday, yesterday it felt like we finally swept aside the hassle and can now get back to normal.
It was a day of errands. Plumber came and finally sorted leak, we made it out to buy Jack a new bike, go to the library (overdue books) and have Sam’s flu jab, plus I think I finally am there with everything on the computer.
We managed the usual maths, English, Latin and Spanish, did some work on the geography and climate zones of India.
I read aloud from our biography of Queen Victoria while Sam drew (and hid when camera came out). Sam sumerised the chapter for his blog.
Then we watched an episode of a documentary on monsoons that with very good timing has been on this week.
Grandad arrived and Sam’s last geography task was to explain about monsoons to Grandad. We had a play with the story discs we’d made earlier in the week. Not the best choices for things on the discs for a coherant story – but I knew that.
My dad then decided to teach Sam poker. Sam loved it but doesn’t approve of folding so could get ver poor very quickly.
After errands and a chip shop tea it was an evening of gang show rehearsals.
