Amy started her work experience at Tom's school today. She set off with her bag and lunch box and I have to say it felt like going back 10 years. Meanwhile the person who should actually be in school was still in bed snoring.
Her degree came through yesterday and she got a 2:1. More specifically she got 68.5 marks, just 1.5 marks short of a first. Given the circumstances of the last year I think she's done really well and we're very proud of her.
We had a lovely visit with Sienna last night apart from one upset when England scored the first goal and the men jumped up and yelled so loudly they made her cry. Poor old Sophie didn't get off lightly either. Matthew was holding a book at the time which he launched in the air and it bounced straight off her head. It was definitely a manic 5 minutes. 3 grown men dancing around the room, Mark holding a flashing fairy wand Sienna had given him, me and Amy sat there laughing, Sophie rubbing her head and Sienna crying. I don't know what we all looked liked.
I bought some little dolls when I was in Middleton yesterday and decided to crochet sleeping bags for them. I'll donate them to church to go in the shoeboxes. The finishing touch will be some ribbon and a bow which I'll need to go to Bury for. I've not been prior to Covid so I might drive over next week.
One of our trips out at my sisters was to the garden centre for brunch. It was one of Mum's favourite places to visit when she was down there so it felt only right we should go. It's so much more than a garden centre and after eating we had a mooch around where I spotted these lovely earrings which Amy bought for me.
And the first harvest of peas has taken place. I kept them all to myself and ate them straight from the pod.
Hope you've all had a lovely day. xx
