1st November. A special home ed day with Ocean
Ralph working today around Moignes Court while Ocean and I made a plan for this half term of Moignes Court creative school. The plan is as follows:
- Build a bender in the woods from hazel poles and tarpaulins
- Put a cosy bed and wood burner in it
- Build a fire pit
- Cook bonfire cake together
- Sleep in the bender overnight
- Make a documentary of the process as we go for the blog!
What a great project!
We then went walking in the woods to find a good spot for our bender. We found a few good options. We cruised past the owl's paradise tree on the way back and decided to climb up.
While sitting in the tree we made this little video. Ocean mixed his words and used insest instead of interest so please excuse him! Lol
I had an epic idea about how to get funding to build a tree house by getting people to pay in advance to stay in it! I think I could get 100 people to pay £100 then we would have a £10,000 budget!
Got back and chilled together playing lego starwars on the iPad
3:00 we both got in the car to pick up solar from preschool. He was so animated when we collected him. “mummy I painted these for you!!!” Big hugs I love Solar Hugs!
Off to the garden centre soft play. Yummy milkshake with minty shortbread biscuits. Looked at the fish in the aquarium shop. Boys were really fun and good so bought them a little blind bag.
Back home for 5:00 I made cauliflower cheese, we all ate together, yummy boys to bed easily!
9:00 Ralph went off to bed I checked my emails and found masterworks may be interested in helping me play a dulciforte dulcimer! Spent until 1:00am writing them a letter about my plans and hoping they will send me a dulcimer!
9:00 till 10:30 Ralph got up with the boys as per normal and I went back to sleep tired. Didn’t go to bed till 1:00am as I was writing a letter to masterworks. Ralph took the boys off at to Corfe Castle, they spent the day making an epic futuristic fight film with special effects! Here's the finished film
10:30 till 12:00 Met Jennys parents and gave them a tour of Moignes Court
Jenny arrived at 10:30ish while I was still in my onesie. I got dressed and we all made a cup of tea to take with us round the gardens. We walked to the secret garden, bus, horse box, up to the new yurt spot by bluebell woods. Its always lovely to spend time with Jenny and lovely to see her parents. They invited us to stay in Germany with them any time! I offered the same x
12:00 - 4:00pm Jenny and co left at about 12:00 so I went into work mode. I took photos of all the things I'm selling on ebay. The goal is to raise £1000 before Christmas to go towards the yurts and or woodland roundhouse. I also tidied the whole court room so it's ready for Anne and Martins guests tomorrow.
4:00 - 5:00 Then I sat with Amanda and had a talk about visualisation. I'm trying to help her get a plan for her next step. I have a new sense of confidence and feel less nervous about dealing with social difficulties since doing the 21 day upgraded life challenge. I can really feel a shift in my visualisation skills. I.m also being grown to want to meditate and do tai chi, so I will incorporate those things into my life in 2019.
4:00-6:00 boys home! Lovely play together then Amy Brown, Enid and Aubrey turned up! Yay, I set up Moignes Court Friday films first film of the year! Watched CoCo day of the dead. Cried my eyes out!
Solar super over tired at bedtime, screamed his head off before going to sleep.
Chilling now, Ralph is playing the Kora and I'm writing my first ever real days blog post.Go Me!!!
Mission for tomorrow. Take phots for the blog. Document everything that is happening with video and photos.
