Moves Like……………..!


Week two of ‘back to school’ and so far I’m still on track with my new target of being more organised. The washing and ironing’s up to date, the snaps are made, cleaning done and Jack’s homework (week 2 and its rolling in) is all marked off on the calendar. Yep, he’s got another 7 weeks to build his birdman model, not a life size one but a big enough one to fit an action man………………….Er, ok!!! Not sure how they are going to check how it actually works but I suppose it’s more exciting than some of the other science projects he’s had – even better his dad will have to help him. I’m rubbish at designing things -who will ever forget my sperm cell back in year 7 -his science teacher still laughs about it now. Pft!!!

Still, handing the’ homework help’ role to hubby means I can help Jack with other subjects, not least the newest addition to his timetable ‘performing arts’.(He’s well chuffed!) Now you’re talking. Strangely he didn’t take too kindly to my best Louie Spence impression across the kitchen -can’t think why!! Then he mentioned street dance, my eyes lit up -his didn’t. After all I am a fully fledged member of a street crew (a-hem) Ok so it was a joke for charity but I’m sure his teacher would be well impressed……….Maybe not!!!

It’s like the holidays never happened

Wonder if we can do performing arts at primary

Bring it On!!!!

Homework Helper for Hire

So at 7:30 this morning I was frantically sorting homework out…………….but it wasn’t Jacks but one of his friends from school! Poor Megan didn’t understand the online probability task so she sent Jack a photo of the screen and asked for help -why? Because my dear darling son told her I was good at helping!!  Needless to say we ran out of time, but not to worry, Megan has got a reprieve until Friday meaning I could ‘help’ her out a little more this evening -like I’d nothing else to do. Have you ever tried to explain probability by text message? I think she got there in the end, but I’ve told her not to worry- it’s taken me 40 years to get the hang of it, and she’ll never use it anyway. Mmm, maybe I shouldn’t have said the last bit.

No bike ride today, it was well and truly banging it down this morning and I felt mean letting Jack walk for the bus just so I could burn a few extra calories. Plus after all the prodding and poking yesterday I think my knee needed a rest. So I had another go on the cross trainer instead. I think I’ve solved the reason why I’m finding it so hard – It seems to be stuck on the highest level. It doesn’t matter whether you have the dial on 1 or 8 ,it’s just the same – bloody hard work. Still I managed another 10 minutes before my legs turned to jelly – I think it’s time to get the spanner out (for the cross trainer not my legs)

Now I need to sneak in a couple of catch-up bike rides, so (and I know I’m going to regret this) I’ve done my ‘Asda Big Shop’ online – eek. So I don’t need to take the car tomorrow. The thing is I don’t have a lot of  luck with Asda Online shopping. Some of the substitutes you get when things are out of stock are unbelievable – frozen tuna steaks instead of tinned tuna – great for hubbys sandwiches,hot cross buns instead of malt loaf(well they are similar!) and fish fingers instead of fab lollies…….Just what you need to cool you down – a fish finger!!! Hopefully the bike ride will be worth the dodgy shopping.

Homework help finished

Maybe I should start a homework club

Bring it on!
