An eventful week

Lots has happened this week to make life difficult! On their way to try out a local multi-sports session, the car broke down so Wayne and the girls were stranded on the motorway. Whilst I tried to sort our getting breakdown recovery the police came to their rescue. They managed to drive the car to a garage, it appears that it may have been dirt in the fuel tank or something. However, before Wayne could leave, the police informed him that the car had no insurance!! It did and it was a bit of a long faff trying to find emails etc as I was at work. All ok in the end, but because the car was new to us it takes a while to appear on the database. An added problem was that the registration number had been entered incorrectly 😦 Thankfully all was sorted and although they didn’t make it to multi-sports the car seems to be working ok.

The girls have been working really hard this week.  Tick sheets are still working really well, we have re-jigged a little and they have a sensible amount to get done each day.  F is  adapting well to home ed,  I think she enjoys the freedom of choosing what she wants to work on each day.

They have been doing some sewing and made some lovely book covers we found on Pinterest.

Poppy and F started Scouts, I didn’t think they would like it but they did 🙂 Poppy was doubly happy as she got to see one of her best friends she had at school and is in the same patrol as her 🙂  They went to their dance class again and both loved it 🙂 phew! I was a bit worried that F wouldn’t want to go again if she didn’t enjoy it this week.

Skye was invested as an Explorer 🙂

My sister and family came over yesterday for a surprise birthday dinner for my Mum and Dad and parked their car round the corner so as not to spoil the surprise. This morning woke up to floods 😦 They waded to their car to discover it had water in the foot wells 😦 Wayne, my dad, my sister, her partner and I went out, over our knees in icy cold dirty water to push the car to higher ground, then had to scoop out all the water. Absolutely freezing, water up to our thighs!!! Thankfully it starts ok. Really did not expect that amount of flooding! At 4am it was clear!

Despite the flooding, we had a really lovely weekend 🙂 I can’t believe my Mum is going to be 60!! She looks fab 🙂
