Life has overtaken us a bit, so I'm going to do a couple of "catch-up" type posts!
We try to keep Fridays quite low-key, as we prepare for Shabbat, and last Friday was particularly chilled, after the feast we had for Rosh Hashanah on Thursday!
We made the rookie error of getting the instrument box out before getting dressed for the day (well, I got dressed, but the kids didn't) and forgetting that the gas man was due to service the boiler!
To give him credit, Josh the gas man did take two nearly naked children scrutinising his every move in his stride, and we learnt a lot about how the boiler works, although there was a slight misunderstanding about blue gases and flue gases. Grace was particularly taken with his magnetic measuring device.
Nicki popped over with a box full of apples and pears from her trees, so we made some stewed fruit, and some sugar-free muffins with them and the blackberries from Wednesday.
Whilst Jude was napping, Grace and I played sound and word lotto.
