However, with weather as beautiful as of late, we've been more than making up for it:
We went to the beach on Tuesday, gosh the sun was bright. Honestly, Rye was a bit off, we'd gone with another home edding family and he whined and moaned that he didn't want help digging his hole, he didn't want to share his bucket and spade etc. Kinda spoilt brat stuff, amazing considering the day before he had played beautifully with my friend's children and they had together, built the most amazing train track filling the entire playroom, and right along her rather big hallway! Late night and early morning rise did not mix, clearly.
Bless him, you'd never know looking at the photo, not five mins before I'd become rather exasperated with him and told him to stop whining and just get over himself.
Wednesday I decided a mostly home day was in order, so Rye and mindie played in the garden mostly, we did pop down to the village to pick up Rye's other bike and I bought a vacuum cleaner (a Henry). Once mindie left, I took Rye over to the little park.
And today is again Thursday and home ed group day.
So the car. I've bought a 2011 Vauxhill Zafira, quite a fancy one too. I didn't realise initially; its got partial leather seats, front and back parking sensors, cruise control, six gears (not that I know what the 6th gear is for lol.. I assume motorway driving), air conditioning and at the press of a button it will check the tyre pressure is correct, and other stuff. Oooh, it is lovely to drive too, after my friend's van, it feels so smooth and quiet.
Weekend plans, well, Rye goes to his dad's tomorrow and is not back until Sunday evening. Ideal as I really, really need to blitz the house and garden.
