Anyway, enough of my theorising. Henry has shed his long pointy tail feathers so looks a bit silly:
I moved the duck pen today and remembered too late that any bare earth soon becomes exploited as a mudbath for their little dabbly bills and there was a half inch layer of mud at the bottom of each of their tubs and their food bowl too.
I haven't got the jars of Courgette Glutney out but that's delicious. I might make some chutney out of the squashes too but they do look lovely on the stall.
Meanwhile I have been crocheting away and finished my second dragonfly, except I need some little beads for their eyes. But you get the idea:
I don't know which one I prefer...
Rosie has gone to her Dad's tonight until Sunday and I was going to go to Harry Potter with the older two, along with Charles and my Dad. Amber asked this morning if we were still going today and I explained that we'd go next week as Charles was in court all day today. Cue shocked faces and 'Court?!' said Amber. 'Has he been arrested??' said Rose. Sorry, no...perhaps I need to explain to them about what a solicitor does.
We had a meeting of the CCG this evening which was most enjoyable, as ever. We are going to have a go at glycerine soap, go on a foraging walk to collect elderberries and continue on with the crochet journey. Oh and we talked about home ed and how it requires a balance between freedom and structure in the face of no basic framework in this country on which to build a homeschool curriculum but hopefully with the aid of some mutual support and decent stationery we'll find a way through!
