Every year around this time we seem to get a lot more reading and bookish learning done. Today in particular it has turned colder so we don't mind staying in and cosying up with a good cd
and this is a great one, it's entertaining and informative enough to make us want to find out more. Today we listened to the piece about Galileo and it has inspired us to look for a galileo telescope kit so if anyone knows of a good one please let me know
I have begun my Open University course and am back to reading and then reading again, oh and then reading in a bit more detail! But I'm enjoying Chekhov ( I can't say I have ever read or seen his plays before).
and Annis has bought a fabulous Julie West embroidery pattern from Sublime Stitching that is so cool and funky, that coupled with gold thread... who could resist.
oh and there's nothing I like to see more than a teenage reader. The oldest (now at college) enjoyed reading but it's been a bit more of a struggle with this one. Percy Jackson and the lightening thief seems to be doing the trick though.
and Annis has been crafting all by herself (poor thing) with her autumn finds from a lovely walk this morning in Morrab Gardens.
What are you finding to do now it's getting colder?
