Just have a look at our week. It hasn’t rained so much in our living memory – or at least this year… Can you believe rain: day after day after day…
The view from our front door looked like this all week. Quite literally a week of wet washing. Now November is always our coldest month, we just forget. It is the only month I have only ever used a heater, about ten years ago. Anyway after two days of cabin fever I was sending the Hoods out in the rain to burn their energy off.
We didn’t craft. We didn’t bake. We did our school and we hunkered down on the couch, from where we watched the rain…
Lego and Zoobs got us through:
And when there was a pause in the rain there was a generalized crawling around on the rock.
Otherwise the father person sent me out to please get anything to wear that isn’t his shorts and THAT green shirt… I came home with se7en + 1 t-shirts – I don’t think that was what he had in mind!!!:
Here are a few things I loved from the blog world this week:
- Have a listen to Rachel from One Pretty Thing – How cool is this!!!
- And I aways thought I was a clean freak – until this, I am only a white belt!!!
- This one is for all those homeschool mums that think they aren’t getting through to a kid or two!!!
- Great post for new and potential mums… don’t forget lunch!
Our book of the week, I have only read se7en bazillion times and it is:
Meanwhile: This is what the Hoods got up to this week:
Hood #1: Was responsible for my little guest this week. The only person I know who can catch a gecko without dropping its tail (yeuch!).
Hood #2: Had some friends round and they bought donuts!!!
Hood #3: Started a whole Zoob accessory event of note..
Hood #4: Went pirating… He appears to have given up school and I appear not to have noticed!!!
Hood #5: Well I don’t know. Some sort of magical mystery man…
I just don’t know, I don’t think I can live with Zoob toes.
Hood #6: Spent the week playing hide and seek.
Hood #7: Read some books, and she is full of information like lions say “mee-ouw:”
She got to know #8 a whole lot better… and they spent time sharing secrets…
Who knows what was said, but he has a very expressive, concerned forehead!!
Hood #8: Discovered a good place to rest his cheeks…
But only for so long:
And you can see why he isn’t wild about hats!!!
And blogging is totally exhausting…
Gazing out of the kitchen window is very exhausting…
And he is slightly less oblivious:
That’s us have a great week!!!
