I really don't feel prepared for Halloween, I had ideas of making Halloween themed food, decorations, but I can't see that happening with the time available now. I permanently feel like I'm trying to squeeze so much stuff, activities,visits, into a box, and when I push something in, something else pokes out somewhere else. It's easier to visualise in my head than to describe in words.
So this morning, we squeezed in a food delivery, and I caught up on messages/diary organising. Plus a chat to my mum about our day in Brighton on Saturday.
J decided he wanted to make Pokemon inspired bracelets like he did about a year ago now. So we found our supplies we had left in the cupboard. He's been looking at what extra beads and elastic he needs to make more bracelets. To make a visit to Beads Unlimited on Sat
S made her citrus mixture in the nutribullet to turn into ice lollies. Her idea from a few blog posts ago. S doesn't eat a great range of fruit and veg, and she doesn't like smoothies on there own, so she thought she'd try it as ice lollies. It contained, lemon, lime, orange, and satsuma. So they are now in the freezer. She decided to leave them unsweetened, and it was quite a sharp mixture. We will have to see what she thinks when she comes to eating them.
S has gym on a Thur, and we headed off a little early as both S and J wanted to fit in a trip to Horsham library, they have a larger collection of Manga books. J came away with some new books, and S was dissapointed to not find some more Secret Kingdom books. Now on my list to look and see what other books the library stocks and order them in to our local library for S. Such a great service.
Once S was dropped at gym, J and I headed to visit friends, who blog here at Our Education Otherwise Diary. We both had a lovely time, a cuppa and a chat for me, wii and xbox playing for J. I think it helped J to get something from the time too, rather than just waiting for his sister!
With the remaining time waiting, he read Adventure Time - Sugary Shorts
Finally home, all tired, off to bed ready for the next day. Well kind of, as I said earlier I'm not really ready. For a start I've forgotten to get something for Halloween tea....
To get to sleep I had to let that all go, and so the title of todays blog post 'Let Whatever You Do Today Be Enough'
