Watch it shes got that head on , im beginning to think that Himself and sarcastic son are ganging up on me ..lol ..I think its more we have been stuck together far to much this winter , due to scrimping to pay for vehicles. the weather, more of which i gather we can expect this weekend. I think im just bored out of my mind and sick of all the crap in the house due to the leaky brick sheds they cant repair till Spring . No its not a good day to repair his shed roof either !!!
Munchkin is joining us for half term , having already scared his new childcare givers away . they just havent grasped that you just feed him endlessly and nod your head and hes quite easy going , hes just not a child who wants organised time , hes very independent. I will provide him with a sewing machine and he can amuse himself for hours . That and supervised ipad will be good if the weathers foul , if not he will doubtless be out the door and haunting the village for his old mates if it resembles sunshine . Thats a thought hes eleven, grandads shed repairs shouldnt be beyond him , bonus . Im sure him and his equally practical mate will manage with a bit of supervision . I always think practical children should be encouraged at all times .
Thats the thing with raising boys , some are academic but useless, others are practical, others are good at painting your nails . Why do we try to ram them into a one size fits all mould . Modern education is geared way to far in that direction , where exam results are the only badge of merit , some kids are hands on practical people . Im more impressed by a man who can fix stuff and grow food , maybe im just an old hippy at heart
