Michael Fish, the weatherman, predicted heavy rain fall today - and instead it's been utterly beautiful. The morning was a little cloudy to begin with, and there were a few drops of rain - barely noticeable though. I know some folks aren't haven't a brilliant summer - but down here in Folkestone, the weather has been pretty terrific for weeks - the mugginess of the past few days has past so I'm a much happier mama, too.
Anyhoos - what we being up to, eh?
Well, it's been another busy and fun filled week. There's been new exciting stories about tigers coming for tea and witches on broomsticks. There's been songs and dancing and rapping at the teatime table.
This morning was toddler group - gawd it's gotten busy, thankfully some of the kids are moving on come September, so it will be a bit less chaotic. The I "joined" the surestart centre I've been going to, both as a parent and as a childminder. Means my details as a childminder will be added to their list they keep and give to parents looking for childcare, and I will also receive information on various events they hold. Their summer programme is looking pretty good!
And then once C had been picked up, Rye and tootled off down to the beach for the Kent and London Home Ed Beach Day. Alas, I couldn't tell who were the home ed lot, so it was just Rye and me - that isn't to say we didn't have fun, though. We did, lots:
Mark of a good day, we didn't arrive home till almost 7pm - and I feel chilled and wonderful..doesn't feel like I've been working this morning at all! Another mark of a good day - the little man is snoring softly on the sofa beside me, curled up under a blanket :-)
