…and some hair band organising 😀

Don’t they just look so pretty all hung up like that? Also helps me see which colours I’m lacking in too! I think I need more blue and yellow… because I have MINION RIBBON! 😀 Take a peek on my Facebook page for photos of that.

So… Home education. Hasn’t gone how I imagined if I’m honest. The Child loves doing the worksheets I’ve found, and we’ve been practising maths and spelling randomly through the day too (It’s surprising how much daily life can be classed as education!). But The Child keeps asking when she can go back to school, and getting upset when I say it’s not until September 😦 I’ve been told kids need a period of ‘de-schooling’, to basically re-jig their brains out of the school mindset. My plan was to see how things were by the middle/end of August and go from there, but seems like she’ll be wanting to go back to school at this rate. Sigh 😦

I’ve also spent today, while feeling ill with cold, organising my WIPs (that’s Work In Progress for you people not in the know, unfinished knitting and crochet projects!) I want to get them finished up. Hopefully having them all in separate baggies, in my little basket beside the sofa, will inspire me to pick some of them up! I think I want to aim for at least one WIP finished a month. We’ll see how long that lasts, huh? 😉

Ah well, till next time! xx
