J picked up a couple of Tudors books, this interest has spun off from a Minecraft Shakespeare Competition.
As an introduction to Shakespeare J has also got Mr William Shakespeare's Plays. We found it a good simplified and introductory version of Shakespeare, in comic strip format, which appealed to J. It does still contain some of the original text, of the more famous sayings. J and I read Hamlet together.
J also decided on a couple of Asterix books to read.
He's also spent time (quite a lot!) playing Skyblock on Minecraft, including making a cobblestone generator. Plus watching Youtube split screen styley!
Good old Stampy, in a Sky Den video. Plus Sqaishey Quack, (I've been told to include Sqaishey Quack by J!) She can't be left out, as she's in the video too. He then said, "the internet all links up somehow, it's like a giant spider web." Such wisdom from an 11 year old.
So here are two of the YouTube Videos that J has enjoyed today. Based around the SkyBlock/Sky Den/Sky Island theme.
S has spent time making chocolate chip cookies. Yum. Just what I needed with a cup of tea this afternoon.

She also found a book at the library in the same series she's had books from before. Previously she's looked at the dog and rabbit version. This time it was cats. S loves these books, as they contain stories of 'famous' animals. It lead to lots of googling and chats of various things. Our favourite cat that was mentioned, was Station Master Tama. Which also tied in nicely with our interest in Japan.
It's Friday so there has been reading of The Pheonix. by both J and S. A year on and they both still enjoy reading it.
J has been drawing.

It's the weekend, so tonight will consist of wine and watching Jimmy's farm.
But that's another, bigger story, of the small matter of what to do with our lives...........
It's all a bit muddled at the minute, and confuddled, so we're fact finding.
