My word for this week is learning, it has been the common theme for all of us in various different ways. A week where we have all learned something new is a great week in my opinion.
Jake’s class is learning all about flight this term and on Tuesday they visited the Runway Visitor Park in Manchester. Jake was absolutely buzzing when he came home, he told us all about seeing the Concorde and sitting in the cockpit of a plane. He was full of facts that he had learned on his visit and shared them with us all. I think we will definitely be visiting the park together this year as I would love to have a look at the Concorde, it’s free to visit too with the only charge being for parking.
Having our fingers crossed wasn’t enough to fix the broken washing machine last week so we decided rather than a costly repair we would have to invest in a new one. After lots of research and learning about energy-efficient appliances, we finally chose a new one.
Daisy has been busy learning lots of songs for her upcoming trip to Young Voices, every night at bedtime we can hear her singing away. She is very excited to be going but I must admit I’m worried about how long a day it will be for her, she won’t be home until 11 pm!

There was much excitement this week when Jake got his first wobbly tooth, it fell out the same day and was promptly put under his pillow. The Tooth Fairy delivered a nice shiny £2 coin and Jake has big plans about what he will spend it on.
I’ve had a fairly mixed week as I had a colitis flare up and spent one of the days in bed getting up only to do the school runs. I’ve been so much better since starting on medication for the condition but I still have the odd really bad day when there’s nothing for it other than to sleep and rest. For someone who loves to be busy and productive, it’s hard to accept some days my body needs complete rest but I’m getting better at it.
