Monday - bit boring, sorry

We’ve just watched the first part of the Summerhill drama, which we all enjoyed. The kids say that they wouldn’t want to go there, because they’d miss us – which is good, because we’d miss them too! But they like the look of the grounds. Mind you, it isn’t always high summer at Summerhill, is it?

Leo spent some time on Education City again today. He likes to print out 100% certificates. If he makes a mistake he abandons the game and starts again. He only wants to play the maths games at the moment. I’m quite glad because I think the literacy games would be generally irritating.

Pearlie went to Kids’ Club, where they made top trumps and drew pictures of animals in their natural habitats. There was a graffiti clean up squad at work in the park and some of the kids made “Save the Graffiti!” placards but were too shy to go out and chant.

Leo went over to the grandmothers’ house, where he did some cool creating. This was His Dark Materials themed, so I don’t entirely understand it as I haven’t read any of the books yet. Apparently it involved a soul eater – I think!

Pearlie and Dani went on a fruitless trip to the sorting office to pick up a parcel that they’d failed to deliver to us. Unfortunately, it was somewhere else in town, not having made it back to the office yet!

I went to an extra meeting at work and then a work trip to another library. I wasn’t actually due to go to work at all today! This is all adding to my time owing and I need to find a time to take it back.

Pearlie is currently working on colouring a lovely Eurolights design, with some watercolour pencils. She says we can blog it when its finished.

Here’s some lovely Homer wisdom:

“Lisa, if you don’t like your job, you don’t strike! You just go in every day and do a really half-arsed job.”
