|Half-term reading for C|
Time off is always welcome - and time off from school is particularly appreciated around here, even though school itself is generally enjoyed. This past week the children were off school for half term, and G took a week off work as well, so we all had a week off at home together which felt very special.
We crammed our week with Good Things:
- a family trip to Kew Gardens with cousins, uncle and aunt. With the aid of a toppled snowman, C was taller than both Uncle and Dad for the first time.
- a family trip to Cambridge to see the newest member of the family, and another uncle and aunt. O took approximately 200 photos of her smallest cousin.
- a birthday for G
- a trip to the other side of London to celebrate a milestone birthday for G's father
- a long walk through the forest with old friends
- a day chilling out with more old friends, some computer games, and knitting for the Mums
- a day at the Olympic Park to watch the Track Cycling World Cup at the velodrome
I spent a happy half hour in the garden this morning, chatting to the hens as I cleaned out their eglu and inspecting the progress of the buds and bulbs. While we've been having time off with family and friends over half-term, the plants in the garden have been hard at work. Spring is so nearly here.
