The game of Caddoo did nothing to lift my mood last night, Emily was also in a tired mood and was very difficult and stroppy so we clashed a little!!! Luckily Al was on hand to referee...
Another strange low energy day today.We had a quiet start to the day and finished the tye dye socks.Milly loves them because they come up to her knees.Even ankle socks have to be pulled/stretched up as high as they can go.Her other thing at the moment is wearing odd socks ,not sure if this is a fashion statement or just the fact that they are all loose in her drawer and it is easier just to grab any old sock!!Any how these will fit both criteria....
We had our local Home Ed group meeting. Emily had a good run around and is gradually easing into the group( only been a year, takes her a while bless her) and then a few off us went off to my friends where the children were able to continue playing.
When we got home Alan was curled up in bed with a fever and shivering.He had said last night he felt as though he was coming down with something and had managed to last through the morning but had to come home at lunch time.
I quickly got changed and took Beauty out for a walk.Al has been taking her as I have found it difficult to hold her when she lunges now that she is so much bigger.I was so tired and was really on edge.We passed one other dog on the other side of the road and she was very good and we managed to get past without the barking and lunging. On the way back home we saw a dog in the distance and we were in a country lane with no escape Oh no!! Thankfully the dog went running back to its owner who had just stopped their car in the lane and it got back in the car,so again I didn't have to fight to keep hold of her whilst she lunged.
Home safe and sound and a quick tea for me and Em and then we played for a while in her room.We discussed her bedtime and she said she wanted to go to bed then and got ready whilst I did her water bottle and I left Al reading to her so I could get cleaned up. He has come down to watch the footy and said she is fast asleep. I am glad she needed an early night.
I am going to watch Masterchef and have an early night as well I think. We would normally go to the food coop in the village hall in the morning but have decided to give it a miss as we have a busy afternoon with a visit to the hospital to see the Peadiatrician then onto the dentist and then Recorder lesson.Milly wants to tye dye the t shirt she got in the kit so we will do that in the morning and then head out to lunch before the Hospital app.
