Thursdays with S
Today being Thursday was my regular day with S. A lot of it is unrepeatable in polite company but lets say we enjoyed ourselves a lot, many times over. Starting with a lay in, then most of the morning in bed, then a shower. Followed by another shower and fluffy warm towels.
You can’t go wrong starting the day like that, not really.
We ambled around town – mostly because I was looking for a dot grid notebook, preferably a cheap one to start off with rather than jumping in with a more expensive one. I tried sketching out pages for the bullet journal in an existing lined notepad but it didn’t quite work for me. I’d seen a notepad I wanted on Amazon for about £3 but thought somewhere like Staples or Wilkinson’s would have one.
They did not. Apparently nowhere in town had one. Trust me, we looked in enough places. This is a student town… how does no-one stock this item? We did however find great deals on Diet Coke, chocolate and some scrapbook ideas for S.
We got home and ended up ordering the Moleskine in blue – as well as a few more maths workbooks. I’m not looking into pens at the moment, will stick to my trust black biro while I get going. Pens are always something I can look into later if I stick to this.
I’m looking forward to them coming so I can get started! 🙂
Maths… definitely let me down this afternoon. I was working on simplifying fractions and got so frustrated that there were tears. A cuddle, some chocolate and I calmed down. S and I worked out that it was my struggle with multiplication tables that was causing my troubles so I wrote out a table. I was nearly finished when S leans over and asks me if I’d forgotten something.
I had… the entire six times table.
S looks at me in this combination of stern and amused and silly and ask me if I think I need disciplining. I agree that I do and I get six strikes with a leather strap. Ouch! I also have to repeat all my tables by rote – and then write out all twelve tables.
Lets just say I got them write this time!
English was much easier today. More parts of language – and adverbs. Adverbs being words that describe verbs, telling you how the action is being done. Like slowly or or neatly or wildly.
I wonder if I could encorporate some kind of English Grammar spread into my bullet journal?
This evening involved a lot of being curled up on the couch with S, me playing with her hair. We watched some Stargate on DVD, I read a bit.
And now it’s time for bed!
