There now. Today the boys jumped at the chance to do more on their lapbooks, did fantastic violin and piano practise, Lucas did maths too, I managed to play with Anton alongside and keep good tempered the whole morning and we all had lots of time to ourselves this afternoon too. I even made a cake for tea. Well I never. I do believe in the calm after the storm. Messages sink in for us all.
NOTE ABOUT CAKE – I feel I should mention that the cake was not exactly as light and fluffy as it was meant to be. I wanted to greet the boys with it when they came in from Kung Fu, but I felt a bit sheepish about it. I mention it because Lucas instantly knew what was called for and said “Your cooking is always lovely mum whatever it looks like.” I think there was a compliment in there somewhere.
