In other news this week:
- Allie and Leo have been ill, with a rotten cold. P. has remained healthy (as always) and kept to her full schedule of two HE groups, Woodcraft Folk, capoeira, and a visit to the library.
- We've been making Christmas cards – no glitter, some of you may be relieved to hear.
- Leo is beside himself with excitement at the prospect of the Doctor Who Christmas special – he even spent this week's pocket money on his own copy of the Christmas Radio Times
- Pearl has been developing her interest in coins – this evening she discovered that a coin collector is called a numismatist.
- Our Monday HE group moved to a great new venue, with much more space.
- We've been playing Monopoly and cards quite a lot – Leo can suddenly do almost all the necessary arithmetic and reading with no problems, and is developing a mean tactical acumen.
- The grandmothers' allotment has been saved from destruction – hooray!
- I have been doing some modular origami, from this book and this magazine.
