Not Back to School Pressie Day

Monday was the day the schools went back and the day D would have started comprehensive school, so we had a special pressie day.

A lovely sight at 6.30 in the morning. The boys had expected to find everything in the bag, but a devious mum had hidden them around the house, so they had to search them out. They didn't find the last one until lunchtime. I had great fun watching, but J told me I can't do it again. Mmmm, we shall see.
Within minutes D had put together his jet propulsion rocket and was test driving it along the hallway.

It even had a ramp to go over.

And here it is, being blown up for another run. After it had had a few test runs, it got it's go faster stripes.
J spent the rest of the day with his head in a book. It was finished in time for him to start another one before bed. I think it was a successful day.
Tuesday was a bit of a low point as they had the dentist. D had a piece of baby tooth removed, as well as fillings, so he wasn't up to much for the rest of the day.
Wednesday was Spanish then a trip to town and the library. J had to pick up Lord of the Flies. I think he is finding that a bit harder to read than Animal Farm. If he completes it, he's done better than me, I just couldn't get into it at all.
They are now with their dad for a few days. A couple of bike rides are in the pipeline and then Sunday they are going to the Abba concert in Hyde Park. It is the first concert they have ever been to and they can't wait.
Next week, it should be back to work, work, work, lol
