the last week has just whizzed by but i shall endeavour to remember the best parts for you.
|Excuse charlies half nakedness, i was informed he wanted to be a naked chef|
We spent last Sunday morning meeting up with new friends in the park and Sunday afternoon out shopping as the birthday money was burning a hole in jasmines pocket.she chose some beautiful clothes, shes always been very mature when was ten I'm sure i would have opted for toys!
Monday was a very exciting day so much so that i was up at the crack of dawn, unable to sleep!
Firstly it was our first day back homeschooling, secondly my sister was having her twenty week scan and thirdly i was starting a new Zumba class.
I was at home eagerly awaiting news from my sister when she phoned to tell me she is having a boy!!!!I'm extremely happy for her and her partner, they already have a beautiful girl.And she proved me right as id told Paul i had a feeling that it was a boy.The scan showed that baby is exactly the right weight and everything is looking fine.come the end of January i should have a cute new nephew to brood over.
Oh i mentioned zumba , i recently started going with one of my sisters on a Friday morning to a local class in the village.its good fun.Mum has the children for me and i get some time to myself for an hour or so, not something iv ever really had before, but i quite enjoy it.
A new class has started on a Monday evening and Paul had said he would be fine with me going while he stayed in with the children.At first i felt a bit guilty, i only ever leave the kids in an emergency but now iv realised that even home schooling mums deserve some time out.( actually we probably deserve it more!)And hopefully i will tone up a bit lol.
Yesterday was a good day for us, whilst Jasmine played out on her skates and Paul put a new fan in the computer i decided to cycle through the lanes to the library to pick up some World war two books for the kids project, of course we came home with half the library as always! books on trucks for charlie, some easy reading books for Gypsie and summer chose her various books and then had time to draw a picture of horrid Henry for a character wall in the library.
Gypsie charlie and i looked at a display and spoke to a local artist about her work, she was very impressed by charlies questions, i think he may well have a career as an art critic ahead of him!

All in all we have had a fabulous week, i hope this week will be the same!
