Half term seriously disappeared, I genuinely lost a day somewhere but we have been fairly busy. Both boys have been suffering with coughs so we've used that as an excuse to take it easy but still managed two shopping trips, two breakfast dates, a visit to London and a play-date plus puzzles/games galore. This next week is going to suck though, back into our usual routines and back to uni. I have another assignment due in two weeks which will probably take up most of my evenings, but I have taken the last week off completely so I can't really complain.
I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban, which is out of my comfort zone and is taking me a while to get through, but she's fascinating! After You
(after reading Me Before You) which made me laugh and cry, though is was a little slow to start. We Were Liars which was beautiful and mysterious, not what I was expecting at all.
A roast dinner, a dinosaur sensory tray, several Lego figures and so many cups of coffee I've lost count. It's been surprisingly uncreative for half term.
Various Spotify Jazz playlists (Daniel's current favourite), Carrie Underwood (after seeing her Carpool Karaoke with James Corden), The Lumineers (as requested by Joshua, he calls it "da music we listened to when I was a baby") and Foxes, because obviously.
Played... Monopoly (introduced Daniel after finding a box in the cupboard at my Nan's), Top Trumps, Guess Who and Phonics Flashcards (like these, which Joshua is doing amazingly with!). Daniel's still a sore loser though, despite me explaining over and over that it doesn't matter who wins, we're still having fun!
