School of gingerbread

A better nights sleep (though I was worried about my impending dentist visit so it took a while to get to sleep initially) and a not too early rise. I sat and watched The School of Rock with the boys. I had forgotten what a good film that was. Smallest asked if I would buy him a guitar so he could smash it up! After breakfast, the boys and I cycled to the tennis courts and had a few games.

It was quite hot at times but there was a nice breeze. We stayed until lunchtime and then cycled home.

They were inspired by SCHOOL OF ROCK

This afternoon I left the boys dusting and tidying the Living Room, Huffle worked and I went to the dentist. Here in Canada they freeze your mouth with a disgusting tasting (supposed to be some kind of fruit flavour) thing and then you don't feel the injection (which is good for me because I normally have to have so much of it). I was almost upside down because I had to have my very back tooth filled. I think he almost had his whole arm in there! He was all done on half an hour without any trouble and I drove home.

The boys were playing on their tablets after their chores and I sat and had a cup of tea with Huffle, a FaceTime with Grandma and Grandad and then I made a start on dinner.

The kids helped me again. Smallest made a cheese sauce from scratch and poured it over the cauliflower and Small made gingerbread for later and the rest of the week. I had to help a bit but they did really well and said they enjoyed it. I rolled out their dough and they cut out lots of shapes which we baked after dinner.

Huffle did lots a of tidying up of edges in the garden and cleared the weeds off the patio. Looking good. After dinner Smallest played in the garden and the rest of us played Catan.
