Today is not just a normal Friday. Yes it’s Friday the 13th, but more importantly its the marks the start of February half term. The Christmas holidays are lovely, but they are always so busy it’s nice to get this week off in Feb to spend a little time doing not much at all. We don’t really have any plans for next week, out with some friends and their kids on Sunday and that’s about it. We may pop to the cinema to watch Big Hero 6 as O has never been and generally do whatever takes our fancy, can’t wait!
One of my favourite posts I read this week was from Suzanne over at 3 Children and It, The Truth About Homework. As a teacher I always love to hear parents views on homework. At work one parent can complain too much is being set and another that there isn’t enough, and they can be from the same class! You just can’t win sometimes.
We saw Taken 3 this week. I was a big fan of the first, really not too keen on the second and was intrigued as to what they could do with a third. I really enjoyed it, and thought the twist at the end was quite clever.
I haven’t read the book and am not particularly interested in seeing the film but I have enjoyed listening to the song from the movie this week. Yesterday every radio station I turned on had this playing, good job I like it!
I have been trying to make the effort to be a bit more artsy with O, last week we made the snowman and this week we got the paints out and made some pictures.
The clean freak in me really has to pipe down as O gets paint everywhere and insists on “helping” me with my pictures but it’s all worth it to see hi happy little face painting away.
I’m handing over to O here as I have worn nothing of any interest, and it is a slight cheat as he hasn’t actually worn it yet but I have treated him to this gorgeous Little Bird top for the spring. Even hubby couldn’t grumble too much about me spending money as he had to admit it was pretty cool!
