Just a little update post, mainly about how we have been hanging around the garden. Since Natalie did the last post about homeschooling, it’s been a few days since I’ve done anything. I’ve got plenty of ideas, but with children to entertain all day it’s not easy. I can’t stand being disturbed when I’m working, so it’s not fair to try when the kids are around. As I will just get short tempered with, it’s not there fault we are all stuck at home all day.
So what have we been doing? Like I said, it has mostly been hanging around the garden. Lily’s Grandad dropped off a pedal go cart for her, which she was extremely excited about. Jack and Lily both got to say hello to their grandparents, before they left. Which was nice, it’s the first time they’d seen any family since the lockdown began. So just getting to say Hello, was good for them.
Lily has had great fun racing the go cart around, to the point we are having a hard time getting her off it. At least she is enjoying herself. Last week I really felt like the lockdown was having an effect on her. The go cart has given her a new lease of life, over the last couple of days.
Gardening and Birds
I have been getting some gardening done. We have some big bushes in our back garden. I chopped them all down last year, but they’ve grown back quickly. They are a bit of a pain, but they seem to be a haven for Birds to make birds nests. The bushes go up against a fence and trellis, and the rest of the back garden has high walls.
It’s obviously a safe place for nesting, we had 5 nests last year. We have the first one already this year. I don’t know who enjoys watching the birds fly in and out more, me or the kids.
I’ve been quite pleased with how my gardening has been going in the front garden. It’s the best it’s looked since we’ve lived here, though it still needs quite a bit of work on it. Jack wants to help me with the gardening. He made a video of his idea of “helping”.
Perhaps I’ll persuade his to do some weeding tomorrow, but I doubt it.
