This is typical of our life, Radio 4/4Xtra on the iplayer, cooking, computing, planning, all at the same time:
So this is what our education has been looking like for the last few weeks as Ruth prepares for her last lot of exams:
I was somewhat gratified to find that All In The Mind -Tues 18th May 2013 – said that research shows the best method of revision is self testing – the way we have worked has been to get through the material asap and then work on exam past papers for as long as possible as our main revision.
All that is about hoop jumping, so now we have a 3 week breather before the last biology exam it’s time to go back to real education. After a slow start today we played Hunter and Gatherers and Ruth made the most amazing chocolate éclairs.
Had our second picnic of the year today. I got out and dusted off my lovely tiffin tin (it was very dusty as last year was so wet we didn’t use it once).
We had a sunny afternoon in Puckpool Park – luckily I could sit in the shade and hide under my summer shawl. Had a great time with lots of Zonie friends and a great way to celebrate a couple of birthdays.
So we are on day 5, food is difficult today as people are all over the place at all different times
Porridge and jam (again)
Onion soup and bread
(those out had bread, biscuits, satsumas, apples and crisps)
Rice and value curry sauce – with pepper, onion and leftover pork
Then we went to Youth Nite at church and as we had spent less everyday we used some of the money we had left over to buy some treats there:
Coffee – 40p
Crunchies – 50p
Sweets – 50p
Cake – 50p
Total for the day £4.59
So total for the week is: 17.64
So we had £7.36 extra that we could have spent – we could have had a piece of fruit and some more pulses everyday.
Martin says he will blog more reflectively about the week later.
I’m looking forward to some lovely local eggs and toast for breakfast tomorrow 🙂
