These School Holidays Part 2 – At home

So while we did some cool stuff when we were away, we were at home for the majority of the holidays. Here’s some of the other things we did.

We replaced the old dog beds, first by making a hessian cover and then with a ready made cover.

We discovered that the hessian stretches with two Labradors on it so it was back to the drawing board.  I found a ready made cover in almost the right size.  It looks so much better!

We did a 200 piece puzzle.


I needed photographic proof because I doubt Girl Child will want to do this particular puzzle again.  She was very frustrated.

We went to the Movies.  Boy Child went with friends and saw Spiderman.  Mr E, Girl Child and I saw Katy Perry.  Her costumes were amazing.

Girl Child also made a Fairy House.  She found a website that had ideas for building fairy houses out of natural materials that you find around you. She is developing plans for Fairy schools, amusement parks etc.

We didn't do any cooking (quite surprising as it’s generally one of our holiday activities) but I found some new GF treats at the supermarket. They  come in Berry as well and both flavours are yummy.

Fruit Bites

There was also lots of guitar playing and drawing (Boy) and play dough creations and practicing balance and steering on a bike (Girl). They both even starting cleaning their rooms without being asked.  Very impressive.

I’m lucky and got to sleep in a fair bit.  That may have been why these holidays seemed nice.  I hope yours were too.
