Day 329– Sunday 24th November
We had been invited to a family press day at Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park by Zippos’s circus. Hubby couldn’t make it so I decided to take the girls on the train…was a bit of an adventure. Had a really good day.
Day 330– Monday 25th November
A morning of cooking and general tidying up…and then caught up with some of my TV series. Only really took a picture of a snack I made the girls. I used to love this as a child… they are called Far Far and are a snack made of potato starch and tinted sago. They puff up when deep fried.
Day 331– Tuesday 26th November
Hubby had today off work but I had school governor meetings all morning so he went off and did the food shopping and then just relaxed. In the evening he treated us all to dessert. Bee asked for a crepe.
Day 332– Wednesday 27th November
At school first thing in the morning to help start preparations for the school fayre. We wrapped presents that Santa would be giving to the kids and also the lucky dip presents. I don’t think I have ever wrapped that many presents before in my whole life to date!
My certificate for my London Bridges Challenge for Diabetes UK also arrived. Am hoping to do it again next year.
Day 333– Thursday 28th November
A quiet morning trying to do some blog work and then in the afternoon went to the school to read with the kids. Only ended up being there for about 40 minutes as they then had to practice their songs for the school nativity in a few weeks.
After school treated the girls to cake and custard before karate and the eldest’s Islamic Studies…..although the eldest didn’t want any.
Day 334– Friday 29th November
The day of the school Christmas Fayre. I had agreed to go in the morning to help out with last minute things and also again in the afternoon to help set up. When we went in the morning there did not seem to be a lot of cakes for the cake stall so some of us agreed to bake. I decided to make as many cookies as I could in 2 hours. They came out OK but ended up a bit harder then I was hoping…but for 2 for 50p they were still a bargain.
Day 335– Saturday 30th November
So cold and foggy this morning and didn’t want to go out. But off to karate we went. Had to have a word with Bee before we went. Recently she has been messing around a lot and not focusing as she should…she has been treating is as more of a jolly and catching up with her friends. And then taking forever to get ready so we can come home..I have to keep repeating myself to tell her to get ready. The place is cold for the parents and I literally come home with frozen feet in winter so want to get out ASAP. So I warned her I would not stand for that behaviour anymore and it is because of her lack of focus it is likely she hasn’t been selected for belt testing next week. If she can’t focus then I will stop her going as it’s wasting my time and hers.
I think my pep talk did the trick as she came out with star of the class.
