First day of the holidays
Can you tell???
In amongst all the chaos I did find them quietly sitting "reading". Ahhhh.
I have also discovered a fairly painless method for getting them to tidy up their chaos. I would like to claim this is my idea, because it's rather brilliant. But it isn't and I'm not. A friend of mine told me that her daughter's teacher has a song she plays whenever she wants the class to tidy up. She doesn't say anything, just plays the music and away they go. Jolly. I can tell you, we've tried it and it works a treat. Our song is "A Spoonful of Sugar". Obviously.
In other news, Nell proved that her Vendéen genes are all present and correct by chomping down on her first bit of brioche.
Her Pilbeam "greedy" genes are clearly also present.
