the first set of words was
ok, i thought. because will be tricky (she usually spells it 'becos') but the rest is a doddle
then i forgot all about it.
well, sort of.
just busy, you know. i see them for breakfast and for bath & story time and denial is a wonderful thing. the weekend was spent at their cousin's birthday. that sort of thing. i'm a last-minute mummy.
wednesday night, panic hit. gaaaaahhh gotta do that spelling. right. 'how do you spell after?'
oh dear. ok. let's sit down and do spelling instead of story time this evening. she just loved spelling 'because' and got it right every time.
next morning, we drive to school, cheerfully practising the words again (eldest, cheerful; mother, quietly frantic), she gets them all.
you're soooo clever eldest!
yes i'm soooo clever aren't i mummy?! i can tell Mrs L i am sooooooooo clever! i learnt all my spelling in just one day!
(no darleenk you don't tell her that bit)
she has been given a next set of words
we have already managed to practice... twice...

i hadn't even noticed that.
probably they're just yellow ears though - what do you think?

jaja we zijn alweer drie weken terug en al het bruin is er al weer af. maarrrrrrrrrrrrr ik wou u toch niet onthouden hoe jongste heel netjes heeft geleerd dat, als je een ober wilt roepen, je niet roept van 'oi!' of met je vingers gaat knippen of anderszins vulgair gedrag - nee, je gaat proberen zijn blik te vangen met een vriendelijke glimlach. zie hieronder het effect (wel effe 't geluid aanzetten svp):
(in Dutch, this time, because the commentary is in Dutch - basically this is youngest politely trying to catch the waiter's attention - without whistling, waving, or otherwise vulgar behaviour)

plans to go camping & take up kite surfing turned into a girls’ weekend in a luxury apartment in cornwall with (ordinary) surfing on the side. i’m a wuss, have never been surfing before & can’t even fly a kite in my backyard. do you reckon those girls knew my hopes for kite surfing are basically non-existent…?
those lurvely girls organised it all so i could literally just collapse into a fluffy comfortable bed having caught the last train from heathrow (just, despite industrial action. hurrah!). walked in to find my bedroom signposted and dry white in the fridge. woke up to a gorgeous walk along the beach, only to find freshly squeezed orange juice & croissants out & ready upon our return
i don’t think so!!!
