Tomorrow we leave for a week in Cornwall. I'm hoping it won't be too wet a week, as Little Cherub is frantic to "go seaside NOW!!!". Playing on the beach in the rain is not my idea of fun. When we get back, there will only be three more days before Angel and Star go back to school, and it will just be Little Cherub and I at home again. How we are going to miss our big girls!
I think it would be good for both of us to add a little rhythm to our days when we get back into the term time routine, and I have a simple plan. The girls leave for school in the morning at about 8am. After they go I will to read to Cherub for as long as she wants, then do housework (Cherub can either play or "help"), followed by a different activity for each day of the week:
- Monday - cooking
- Tuesday - nature (visit country park, gardening or indoor activity, depending on the weather)
- Wednesday - art and craft
- Thursday - out and about (the zoo, the farm, playdates, library and so on)
- Friday - music (Jo Jingles class)
