An update on that orange balloon, it is now ripped in half and now looks like a bow on the branch.
From the kitchen: Sunday we had a very lovely lunch out at the pub on the way to the seaside, made particularly nice as it meant no work for me. We also had a special treat of cake and smoothies at our favourite bakery, Sable d'or. At home we had stir-fry with salmon, marinated beef, Pasta with bacon and a mushroom (the biggest ever).
In the learning room: Maths, no surprise there, eh? The Romans in Britain and a trip to the Museum of London. We also finished our weather project and our home made rain gauge has worked and we were able to read how much it had rained last week. We also started on the organs and where they are in the human body. Big Monkey now can name the major bones in both English and German. We also started with the wonders that are irregular verbs, the English ones aren't that surprising, occasional some mistakes slip in but of course they don't provide many surprises it's the German ones that produce much eye rolling. Big Monkey also had another saxophone lesson and we now have to decide whether we buy the instrument as our rental agreement has run out.
We've been creating: Big Monkey found her French knitting again and has been busy with that. I made lots more layouts from my Counterfeit kit so this has proven very successful for me. But now I'm ready for the new kit. Not too much longer. I also made a few cards and four more postcards for the Alphabetica swap.
Things we did: Big Monkey went to Messy Play with Little Monkey and decided it was just too messy for her and she wouldn't go again. They played with shaving foam and colours and apparently it was absolutely everywhere. She had paint everywhere she said, and whenever she touched something she got messy again. Well, that's the idea and that's why Little Monkey goes there and doesn't do it at home. However, it's at Missus Wookie's Quaker meeting House. But it sounds that the messy play teacher is very good at tidying up after herself as so far I haven't hear anything negative from Missus Wookie. I think she just doesn't want to have a look at the going ons. I'm with her on this one. It sounds crazy. We also visited the Museum of London, with Missus Wookie, and Little Monkey wasn't terribly impressed so he "entertained" us with his singing.
