Thursday is about done! already. Found some pages on Atoms for G’s Chemistry class. 2 loads of washing out.

Bert + Barbara popped in for a cuppa and catch-up. Made pumpkin-based soup. Lunch.

Kids did science and maths.

Yesterday organised a bookcase for Mark’s books – he’s pleased. Not sure what was achieved today – certainly winter is here … and it can be quite chilly in the mornings.
