Hi, hi, c’mon on in!
How are you? You’ve called at a perfect time, as the boys are on a Boys Own Adventure to Oxford for the day and we have the space to sit and chat. It’s a little Autumnal outside today, isn’t it? I do hope that summer isn’t over just yet.
What have I been doing while they are out?
I have ignored the plaintive calls coming from the depths of the ironing basket and I have scrapbooked.
And it’s been heavenly, I can tell you. Apart from trying to keep up with Project Life, I haven’t done any scrapbooking during the summer holidays and I have missed it. I’ve made a title page for the album about our summer travels and a double spread about visiting the Louvre. And I suspect I shall start on another page when you have gone.
How has your summer been? Did you manage to get away at all? School starts again next Wednesday and I would say that The Boy Child is ready to go back. I know that I am. Year 3. Gulp.
We’re hopeful that he will transition into a new routine smoothly. His new teacher has first hand experience of teaching children with Autism and we have armed him with simple knowledge of his condition. Yep, we had The Talk and it went okay. I’ll go into more detail another time.
Now, how about a top-up and you can tell me what you’ve been upto …
