It is our first proper day back of home ed today. We’ve moved slowly up to this point over last week and so today was to be full-on muscular home ed. Yes, but for the small fact that I have lost my voice! I have a cough that makes me sound like a flat battery crossed with an oil leak – all very entertaining. The timing is a bit irritating, but I reckon all these can’t breath, lost voice attacks I’ve been having recently may be God’s little 2×4 telling me I talk too much!
So the gentle Franciscan cum Benedictian kind of home education we do here has given way to the more Trappist approach – into some kind of silence. (There will never be great silence in our house while Heleyna lives here).
Thank God for all those audio files I have tucked away for such moments.
