The children learned about Babylonian bas-relief. The book (Artistic Pursuits) suggested the activity should be making clay versions, but I am out of clay. I had thought of making bas relief with card and sticking toilet roll and tissue paper down to make the relief. But just as I was planning that I saw a book about Christmas decs on the table and it had the foil making thing. So I decided we would make foil bas-relief instead. The children glued and folded a piece of foil and then with a pencil drew out a picture. When they turn them over the picture is in relief on the other side. Simple. Also it was something even the little ones could do without needing a lot of adult help.
It was K’s birthday so we had cake with candles to celebrate. We have a plan, which I pray comes to fruition, that we will have a big party when we both make it to 50.
It was also our wedding anniversary yesterday; 22 years! I told Al I thought things were ok so far 😉
But this morning I find we still have no Government. I am wondering if it matters?
Meanwhile Carlotta tells us that Graham Stuart who is still MP -so one of the good guys won, promises there will be no monitoring or “registration” under a Tory Government. I assume this is a firm promise at this point because even if Gordo is prized out of No. 10 and Dave gets to move in, it will be a difficult place to be. There is no money to come after ordinary people like home educators so I guess we can put away the ammo for now 😉
So, while the toddlers (no one could call them giants) fight it out in the playground, perhaps we can all just get on with life, until the Eye turns again.
