R went to drama this morning and carried on with rehearsals for ‘Where the Wild Things Are’, sounds like costumes are going to consist of dressing up in a mishmash of bright clothing…. the sort of costume that even I can cope with sourcing!!! (I wish I was the type of clever mum who quickly throws together some amazing creation… alas I am not!)
It was 25 degrees by 6am this morning, so apart from R going to drama, we stayed at home, with friends round to play in the afternoon. R and W and L got the water pistols out and J and I sat in the shade, though when it got really hot in the afternoon it was cooler in the house… the advantage of a Victorian house. Sometimes I do wish it was lighter in the house, but it is perfect on hot summer days 🙂 we all moved into the house later in the afternoon and the kids played playmobil, we also got out the chemistry molecule set that J had brought round and had a go at building a few molecules, J and I also looked through some chemistry books, we regularly swap ideas of things to try. He has recently done some electrolysis experiments with W and L which have worked well… and would be worth a go at.
L came home very hot from school, though she said ICT and English had both been lovely and cool. Thankfully she didn’t have PE today. We got the bucket of water out to sit with feet in, which helped. S went out for a run! Bonkers!
We popped round to friends in the evening to deliver belated birthday presents, some of S’s photos on Canvas which our friend requested. Just took a while to sort. We bought some smaller ones for us too, which arrived today… one of London, one of the Golden Palace in Japan
and a Mount Fuji pic S took last year while we were on holiday in Japan and a Grand Canyon pic taken as we flew home from Los Angeles a few years ago. Now just to decide where to put them!!
