Productive family day

We had one of those days that just comes together, happily pottering at home. Sometimes I get frustrated at weekends with housework calling me everywhere and people in front of screens… usually I’m happy if I get chance to do some painting and also have some time with us all together. We got a fair bit done, L decided to make shortbread scone biscuit things which are lovely and S and L worked together on mending the guinea pig run, which was really beginning to fall apart. R had a go at sawing and hammering and measuring, and really took it seriously. I had chance to paint, but it was lovely because we were all near enough to chat as we did our individual things. It was a nice chilled out day after our busy London trip.

S, L and R also filmed the next in the series of Minecraft Tutorials they’ve been making.

We then had a family picnic to go to the next day, (which is what I’d done the painting for) my sister & her husband had a joint birthday picnic. Lovely to catch up with people. It only rained a little bit and managed to stay warm, which when we have picnics is unusual! Lots of chance to play with little nephew and niece too which was fab.

Pizza Express with Home Ed group

R went with Aunty M to a home ed session at Pizza express. It sounded great – each child made their own pizza from scratch. R was really pleased with how the crust and base came out and she saved a piece for me.

There were 11 kids there and it sounded like the staff were great with them. All for free! Thanks Pizza Express!

The afternoon carried on in a food based theme with cake pops (cake balls in a special cake pop maker that R got for her birthday) great fun trying to put the balls of cake on sticks and then decorate them with melted chocolate and sprinkles, it wasn’t a bad first attempt. 🙂
