This week has been fairly busy because it’s been half term. I’ve been trying to perform the usual juggling act of balancing working from home and having H off school. To be fair he does occupy himself a lot now, but we do try to see friends during the holidays, so we did that for 3 days out of the 5. One evening we went to see some real jugglers though at the theatre. We got press tickets to Cirque Beserk at the Birmingham Rep. It was a lot of fun and the acts were very good. I got to see some local bloggers too. We took along a friend of H’s so that he had someone to talk to too. So a fun night out for all.
H enjoyed having a couple of down days in the middle of the week. He loves seeing friends, but it’s nice to have some time to just chill. I was glad of them too as this is when I got most of my work done.
The glamorous side of blogging: testing out a cup cleaning product. This is just the thing for me as I drink a lot of tea and struggle with my cups getting stained with tannin. It’s proved very effective (this is the before picture) and there’s a review and competition coming soon.
Yesterday we had friends round and in the evening we went with them to a stargazing evening locally. It was run by the Birmingham Astronomical Society. Sadly we didn’t get to do any stargazing because it was a cloudy night – the night before had been clear and cold and I thought we might get a good view, but it was clear by late afternoon that the cloud was here to stay. We went along anyway and I learnt a lot about space (I didn’t really know that much). H apparently knew most of it already.
