We have had a lovely few days entertaining P1, P2 and their children. Well actually they’ve pretty much entertained themselves, today in particular has been a day of doing nothing much alongside one another, very relaxing, if a little lazy
‘Nothing’ included a trip to the bottle bank/corner shop for Anna and Gwenny, where they got very wet as it suddenly poured with rain. Listening to part 3 of the Horse and his Boy on BBC7, along with a bit more hama beading. Eye Toy, Singstar and some driving game or other on the PS2. Racing around with guns (the toy variety, obviously ) Some reading, a bit of Animal Crossing … and a fair bit of food!
Last night was nice too … roast chicken followed by posh Sainsbury’s desserts which the children didn’t like all that much (oh dear, what a shame ), got the kids just about sorted then watched the Apprentice together along with wine and yummy chocolates, then chatted over cds for a while … the older girls were still awake when we went to bed though!!
Personally I just enjoyed being in the company of friends … and I was pleased that it didn’t feel as though too much had changed despite us being traitors to home ed I’m always amazed at how the children get on so well with one another too, I think Joe especially enjoyed having Ernest here
So far so good, only one item found that will need returning, Buttercup’s Pants book … I’ll do a swap for the AC:WW guide in 10 days’ time
I liked the fact that P1 blogged for me yesterday, I think I might actually make it a pre-requisite that if any of my blogging friends come round they have to do a guest blog post here, it would amuse me, at least
Tomorrow will be a day of tidying up and washing, I think …
