still loving the freshly baked bread and rolls
played at the beach,
done some den building,
a fair amount of Hama/Perler beads,
seen some friends, played some football, been to tennis camp and still had music lessons. The rain at the weekend was torrential so the DS's were out and there was begging for screens.
Am I the only Screen Nazi out there? I can't stand the way children (or men for that matter) behave when screens are on, so during the week they are banned, except for the occasional bribe for the Big 2. No DS's, no TV, no Wii from Monday until Friday afternoon. Computers are allowed only for homework purposes. During the holidays there has been a screen ban until 5pm. When I was their age I would go out and play on my bike or read, imaginative play. No 2 Boy and his Best Friend in Scotland were always the best at this. When they played together you could easily forget they were there as they just got on and built stuff together. As they got older they would head off on their bikes or play in the woods next to N's house. Even now, he is the one who has the best fun with his friends and can spend hours creating things.
And now we are back round at the weekend again. Husband has voluntarily said he will take some time off, so I'm looking forward to a long weekend of family time (no football or tennis matches), maybe a bit of exploring and spending time with friends.
I'll leave you with a pic of my latest Crochet-ing. These scarves are fabulously easy and proving very popular.
I hope you all have a very peaceful and Blessed Easter weekend.
