The garden spade is waiting for someone to have enough energy to dig out a new bed down the entire length of the garden. It's been so hot that no one is that keen on making a start. To be honest it will be easier when we next have a downpour and the soil is easier to turn. That's our excuse at the moment. It's still really hot outside at 6.37pm. The little boys next door have been splashing in their pool- and it always sounds so tempting. Our dog loves jumping into the smallest bit of water- and we bought her- her own paddling pool. But she acted like she thought we were trying to drown her- so that wasn't a great success!!!!
We had Emma's school report today- they have never been really over the top with praise before. But this one is her best one ever. She has mainly A's and B's for all the points in each subject. She is selective mute outside the house- so she has C's for asking for help/advice. But I could have burst with pride reading this one. It said she'd had a really good year and was improving on staying on track. Lots of positive remarks. It's amazing what the right teacher can do with her. Unfortunately (for Emma - not for her- sure she's absolutely delighted) she's going off on maternity leave- so Em will have to get used to another teacher. Apparently she will say goodbye to this teacher now. That probably sounds like nothing- but it is a HUGE achievement for Emma.
Yesterday- I almost wished that Emma was selective mute at her grandma's house. She announced LOUDLY that she preferred my mum to grandma- who we were visiting for her birthday! That nanny spoilt her and grandma didn't. Ever wished that the ground could swallow you up and transport you away from a situation!!!!!!
