Yesterday was dim and dismal and very damp although we didn't have a lot of rain, and today looks like being similar. It's pretty dull and gloomy right now.
I was at the Infant Music Festival all day yesterday. All jolly good fun and I was helping with the 'orchestra' again. I can take most things in my stride but even my mouth fell agape when two lovely lads bounced up clutching their glocks and announced 'Hello, what are we doing? We haven't practised anything.'
You will be glad to read that we found them something to do and they managed it fine. They all managed fine. It may not have always been according to the notation but we believe in the Morcambe and Wise approach - all the right notes but not necessarily in the right order! It works for Y2.
|My most favourite sketch ever - I like watching the reactions of the orchestra in the background.|
Beth posted her photos of the fifteen Tonk sock cats that we've been making. They're really very cute, aren't they? They're sitting on the current granny rectangle blanket that is nearly finished.
The other thing I am crocheting is a small ripple blanket. I have decided I really ought to extend my crochet techniques somewhat and, as I am having coffee with a friend on Monday, this will make a nice gift for her daughter to wrap her dollies in at night! See, I am still using up yarn - there's plenty left on the cupboard still.
Today is pretty peaceful after yesterday. There's stuff I have to do in the morning and after school it is tuition time again.
I think I might have time to try an 18/20% loaf and see how that pans out, although the 90/10% was really very delicious. For the technically minded, I am working on a 63% hydration! And yes, I do know that that means - at last!
And now I need coffee as I have woken up very stuffed up and with a sore throat. A cold, I think. Coffee should help!
