The second dice bag is almost finished, and is much better. R is really pleased with it. It's the same material but has a round bottom and just drawstrings at the top. I'll post a picture later when I take one to put on BG's blog. There's a fair few to put on there this week, which is nice. Hopefully it's nice for her, but *shrug* who knows.
Later. (WARNING - PROUD MUMMY MOMENTS INVOLVED!)
I didn't put a picture on there, I thought I'd save it for next week. At the moment we are doing less and less as we push forward with plans, and today was a lovely example of our lives, but full of the kind of stuff that used to wind up her mother. I don't know if it still does, and frankly, I'm not bothered, but I'm not inclined to rub the child's face in the fact that her father is a great father to my son and is not allowed to be a great father to her purely because of distance.
Today the AC and I went to church and there was a round of applause for us as we took over doing the notices formally. Very exciting if you are the AC, reasonably embarrassing if you are me. As a by-line, It was put in the notices that there was a volunteer to take over the notices, and gave my name, followed by "(AC's mum!)" which was really cool. It comes on the back of an article I'm blogging about later if I get around to it, but I like the fact that one of my roles in life is as his mother, and that in some places that is what I am known as. He is a wonderful child and I am so proud of him. One of the dears at church asked how old he was today, and when I said he was 5 and a half, she was very surprised, as she had thought (as an ex-teacher no less!) that he must be seven because of the way he speaks and asks questions and is clearly very bright! I had a proud mummy moment, I have to say.
We got home and I made fried breakfast for lunch. We don't do it very often, and most of it is grilled these days, but the boys like it - and I find it easier than roast lol! We had sausage, bacon, fried potatoes, scrambled egg and the boys had sauce, but I didn't.
Then we sat down to do homework and marking. I marked the Art books - which were quite good in the main part - and the AC sat down to do his homework. It took a little while, but he didn't need very much help. R sorted out the kitchen after lunch whilst we did work.
We moved on from that to making Potato Heads whilst R was at the table "helping" build and passing comment!
After that we played some Emergency Heroes and so on and it was just a nice family day. Nothing amazing just a good time together. We made sure that there were a couple of pictures of Daddy for BG, but if you were not near your Daddy, would you want to see him having fun with another child?
It's a weirdness. I'll blog on it later as well.
Right now, it's bed time, and time to snuggle.
