Holiday highlights

Well, we had a few days with the luxury of nothing particular to do after a long 3 month stretch of work and other commitments – and we spent them doing nothing in particular, just pottering about at home and enjoying some sunshine in the local parks. Among other things, we:

  • met up with local cousins
  • sorted P's entire coin collection into chronological order and plotted the results on the computer as a bar chart

  • rediscovered monkey bars in one park and climbing poles in another

  • played with other kids on the new roundabout and swing in the park
  • did some knitting

  • baked some bread
  • had an outdoor HE group meet in another park, where P. and I rode bikes for the first time this year and Leo determinedly pushed himself along on a scooter (Quote: "I have achieved movement!") before entirely coating himself in sand.
  • watched lots of Doctor Who clips on www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho, in increasingly feverish anticipation of the new series
  • planned menus, ordered loads of shopping and checked bus timetables in preparation for a visit from my sister and her family this coming weekend
I'm back at work now, but A. has another week off, so we're still feeling holidayish.
