DIY after the big freeze !
Well ,lots of catching up to do guys ! We`ve been sick here , (the parents just) with a stomach bug so Aideens spent most of the week putting her first-aid and household skills to use...shes been a star ! So after lessons yesterday , maths and a pipes that burst during the "Big Freeze" , and yes even Daisy was in on the job LOL
Not just as Homeschoolers but as parents of girls , we want our kids to learn DIY ,etc for when the time comes to "leave the nest" , they can handle burst pipes , blown fuses ,etc and yes if we had been blessed with boys they to would learn the "girly" things like sewing on buttons , cooking etc...my Mother thought all 5 of my own brothers all these jobs , and well , they dont go hungry LOL
Aideen loved the plumbing , she seems to have a knack for it and when I went outside with tea for the workers herself and Sean were so "into" the job they didnt even know I was there ! By this time Daisy had taken to jumping in the puddles created by the leaks , so yeah , I joined her....till next time !
