So last weekday in my diary of the week.
Well it started early – I woke Ruth up at 1.35 thinking it was 7.05 and she had missed her paper round!
I heard her get up at the right time for her round and got up. Finally this week I managed to get up early.
Listened to Pray As You Go, made a coffee cake and a chocolate cake. Ruth returned and chopped mango for me – made mango chutney (mango needed using up), she washed up and then made pancakes. We managed to get Jonathan out of bed and headed off with lunch (be impressed) to ice skating.
At ice skating until after 1.
Lunch in the car (having stopped for the Fry’s bar special offer in the local shop) – even managed 1 portion of fruit or veg each!
Then off for an afternoon at a friend’s. Jonathan spent the afternoon playing Lego villains. Ruth did her first geocaching and I sat at the table with my friend and her charming little girl setting the world to rights and drinking tea. This is the best sort of afternoon and one of my favourite HE activity – happy children engaged in what they were doing and sitting with tea and a friend!
While we were busy doing this Rebekah was doing band practice and then came home and made a most lovely beef stew with dumplings – she has been aiming to do this all winter and as it has got decidedly spring like recently she thought she had better get on with it.
