Worked at N's this morning, then round to Mums. Malc was meant to drop off a slow cooker stew first thing to Mums on his way to work but he forgot so I had to wait for him to arrive at dinner time so I could warm it through for them.
After our own lunch I did an hours ironing which cleared two thirds of the basket, although I've just put another load in the washing machine and I noticed that Malc had got the washing in and it's full again!
Oh well there's always tomorrow!
The boys and I then settled down to do some schoolwork.
Most weeks we write to Nanny Ann in Essex, although the internet is everywhere not eveyone has it and Nanny Ann likes to receive something other than junk mail through her letter box.
As we were on a roll we then wrote to the secretary of the Shaftesbury carnival committee ( whose name and number I did get from the internet!)
I rang her earlier to ask for their address and after talking to the boys about the different aspects of arranging a carnival like safety, organising bands, floats, availability of food, parking and road closures, setting up directions and sponsorship we decided it would be a nice idea to write and thank everyone involved.
Most of the people would have volunteered and we thought they deserved a big thank you for all the hard work they put into the event.
Tonight Malc and Soloman have gone to Cubs, Soloman has taken his karate grade two certificate to show and tell, he should receive a badge once he's done that. Don't ask me which one, I can't keep up!
I'm off to set up a slow cooker for our tea tomorrow so that I just have to flick it on in the morning.
Then a bit of crochet, if I get a wriggle on I might even get to sit down and watch Emmerdale!
