Visualising a Day: 11th April 2014

Yesterday I spent the day in London. So much to see and such little time!
Here’s how it went…

Chocolate with Wings for Mothering Sunday

On last weekend’s shopping trip Dylan wanted to get me something for Mother’s Day, so I set the budget and closed my eyes whilst he hunted for something and hid it in the trolley, telling the check-out person at the end to hide it too!
I’ve just retrieved ‘the chocolates’ from the bookshelf in Dylan’s room, as instructed. Surprise! <3

Even sheep need fun

We cycled past this spirited bunch on the Stony Stratford Riverside Walk again yesterday and they were still taking it in turns to climb up onto the log and survey their peers from a different perspective before leaping off – with a great big BAAAAA!

3 mile cycle ride for Sport Relief

March 22, 2014 - Leave a Response

Dylan wanted to get involved and do something for Sport Relief this weekend, so we decided to sponsor each other to do a 3 mile cycle ride.

Including the odd pause for a chocolate power pellet and to rehydrate… and a half time break at the park… we completed our challenge in about an hour and a half!

This one proved a little frustrating for D – particularly the toes and the collar, which then led on to a rotated head. I didn’t like my own toes all that much either. Nevertheless, we explored tone, shadow and scaly, wrinkly skin quite well together.

Preparing for Palaeontology?

D: I’m going to read EVERYTHING there is about dinosaurs – if it says anything about ‘dinosaurs’ I’m going to read it!
Me: Do you want to be a Palaeontologist?
D: What’s that?
Me: Someone who finds out all about dinosaurs and prehistoric times.
D: Yes! That’s what I want to be! I want to be a Palaeontologist. Can you book me onto a lesson PLEEEASE mum? Can you find some training for kids to be Palaeontologists and if it’s not too much money can you book me on? I REALLY want to do that.
Me: I’ll look into it…

So far, we’ve visited the Natural History Museum (last Oct), D has excavated 6 dinos from a block of plaster, helped a T-Rex to fly and watched the BBC’s Walking with Dinosaurs series twice over. He’s now deeply into some library books on the subject.

…Anyone know of any low cost, local Kid’s Palaeontology sessions?!

BookLog

Dylan managed to read 22 books (1 of which he wrote himself!) during last week’s sponsored read, in aid of refurbishment of the school library (to involve self-service shelving units, new books and possibly some digging facilities). Thank you to his school, his childminder and his sponsors (you know who you are – Dylan has received every message XXX).
