Today was one of those days when I have to just give up on any plans I had made and just go with the flow. I had planned to go to Kingston to buy a Christmas tree (it’s never too early) but D was under the weather and M didn’t really want to get in the car again so we called it off.
I made Gwyneth Paltrow’s Candy Bar (very healthy but fatty – delicious) with the girls helping me to measure out the ingredients. D then spent ages watching Numberjacks and playing with her Arithmasticks. M carried on making her Christmas decoration with the enormous fir cone she found yesterday and looked up facts on the internet using her Rice Krispie Discovery Cards.
M played in the garden a little bit but generally it was a VERY quiet day. I took full advantage and did some crap-clearing (a seemingly endless task in our house) and some lesson planning on Mondrian.
At 3pm we went to meet D’s best friend in our local park. The girls got a good run-around and the evening sun was gorgeous. What a lazy day!
