After gearing up for Win starting school this week; it turned out to be of a non-event. He didn’t have his first full day until Thursday, and hasn’t been the slightest bit bothered about attending (which of course I’m relieved about). I was planning a low key week with Ru (& O) but everything has still been very focused on Win. He has loved cycling to school every day, and loves wearing his uniform. I hope the novelty doesn’t wear off too soon!
Here is what else we’ve been up to:
- Blackberry painting – Win really had a good times creating some art using blackberries, leaves and mud. He insisted it was a ‘blackberries tree’, not a blackberry bush. The Forestry Commission has sent us some fantastic ideas for autumn art, and this was one of them – check out their website for more. Did you know that experts are predicting a truly sensational colour display this autumn? I can’t wait!
- Mud painting – Following on from blackberry painting the boys spent a wonderful afternoon in the garden mud painting on canvases and a paper roll. It was such a hot day.
- Jasmine Thompson – This week I have been loving Jasmine Thompson’s acoustic covers. He voice is enchanting, and I’ve been totally obsessed whilst cooking dinner.
- The patio and fence in our garden are finished. I am so excited – it is now a usable area. Here are some images inspiring me: Just in case you missed the promotional video we were able to be part of for our photographer friend – here it is (make sure you turn up the sound as the song is wonderful):
Enjoy your weekend!
