Time apart, time together


Today has been mostly about chilling with Piccalilli while the Stinker entertained Poppet and Pickle.

This morning I took Piccalilli swimming, something she loves doing but doesn’t get to do very often. Bless her, she has to go to the swimming pool twice a week to watch her sisters’ lessons and always asks if she can get in but the answer always has to be no!

So this morning when I asked her if she’d like to go swimming her little face lit up. “With my minion ring?” she asked!

We had a lovely time dancing, splashing and jumping in; it was great to spend time with just her, something I rarely get to do since we started home educating.

The big Ps had a great time with the Stinker – cinema followed by watching his football team (as he’s currently injured he has a supporting role).

We all got back together late afternoon feeling refreshed – we enjoyed using clay to make diya lamps for Diwali and poppies for Remembrance Day; we watched a puppet show in the big Ps bedroom (with tickets and interval but sadly no ice creams!); basically we enjoyed each others company, which after One of those days cheered me up no end!

Sometimes it’s good to have time apart – it makes the time together better ♥
