Reading, reading and yet more reading!

As you can guess from the title of today's blog post we've read lots of books over the past couple of days. This was prompted by a note from the library informing us that one of Roo's books was wanted by someone else. Oops, we've had them for ages and not got around to reading them. The book in question was one of The Worst Witch stories. We read it all in a day and then started on the other one we had from the library too. After reading that one we started on an Enid Blyton mysteries book. One of the characters in it is called Fatty!! Romy had me change his name to Freddy though. We're now reading Flat Stanley, which I'm not too impressed with. Can't quite put my finger on why though. The writing seems a bit poor I think.

Here's Romy's lovely photo from Brownies. There was also a group shot with it but they want £12.50 for the two! Slightly illegally we've decided to just scan them instead ;o)

We had fun on this maths games site the other day. Lots to do and loads of other subjects I think we'll go back to another day.

Yesterday Romy and I went into town for the afternoon. We had something to eat, bought me a new (bargain) swimming costume (mine was way too big) went swimming (water was freeeeezing!!) and spent some time in the library. Romy chose TONS more books. I don't know when we'll get to read them all, rofl. She doesn't seem to 'get' that when we're in the library. She's like a kid in a sweet shop. Actually, she's not that fussed about sweets, she'd rather have books ;o)

This morning we printed some beautiful stuff from this fantastic site. That I found over at Lucy's blog. We only managed to make one thing in the time we had as the cutting out was v fiddly. Here's Romy's fairy-in-a-box:

We also did a bit of music appreciation this morning. Romy made up dances for various classical pieces including a ballet-type effort for Ave Maria and a marching dance for Bolero. In the afternoon Emily came round to play. They were straight in the pool again...

...But Romy couldn't bear the cold for more than half-an-hour ;o) So they came in, had a picnic upstairs and played guitar and sang.

Just been to Roo's swimming lesson and enquired about her 50m certificate and badge. The teacher said she'd have it next week and added that she's not too far off gettin her Dolphin level 4 now. Ooh, I was chuffed. There's only one more level after that and that's it! Then she can go on to do life-saving or distances or whatever.

Colin was really pleased at taekwondo this week. He got to do a board-break and beat a black-belt at sparring! (He's a yellow-belt.) Cool.
