How are you? Autumn has arrived, it has certainly got chillier. I have started to wear my hand knit socks over normal socks with slippers as my feet just get sooooo cold. I need to finish another pair so I have more of a choice. I love the fact that you can go wild with colour if you want to when it comes to socks. My socks are very colourful don't you agree?
This morning I went on a 10k run. I do this every week either on a saturday or a sunday. I also try to get out during the week and do 2 miles if I can. It helps my sanity and I always feel better after a run. I recently did Wigan 10k and have a couple more races planned in the near future.
Other things going on have been visiting highschool open days for my year six eldest daughter. I had been absolutely set on a certain school but my choice has completely turned on it's head in the last few days and choices have changed. I am hoping the final choice has been the right one and daughter is certainly happier about it. I think it will be a better school for her. I walked around the open day for the school I was certain on and just felt it was not the right one, it felt off.
Sats for year six have also been playing a big part. I think they are hard. There I have said it. Oh my goodness it was nothing like it was when I merrily took the 11+. It just seems like tests, tests, tests and other areas of learning are squeezed out other than Maths and English. My daughter has other strengths such as art and it is a shame that the focus is just on certain subjects. I did not have a care at 10/11 years old and we were not even told about tests we just did it one day but now it's all about prep work for sats. I feel for my daughter I really do. I would rather she was playing and just being and not having to think about ongoing tests at such a young age.
So that is my life trying to help and support my year six daughter as best as I can.
I could go on forever so I will change the subject. This is the progress of my everyday scarf. I really have not done any knitting as such but every now and then I have picked it up.
Also I have just started reading this.
I am definately this. Trying to juggle a million and one things daily....
I had started reading The book of M by Peng Shepherd which was an e book from the library. However I had to return it and someone else had reserved it so have reserved it myself to finish it at a later date.
Right that's my catch up. Off to make cottage pie for tea.
Looking forward to watching the finale of The Bodyguard tonight. Anyone else been watching? If not I recommend a good binge watch.
Thanks for reading and have a good week xxxxxxx
