Blog 'til you drop (and ignoring the writing)
But first I'll tell you some other news from here: the car is taxed and is in the garage being fixed, so we'll be mobile again soon. That's kind of good news and kind of not: we're looking forward to visiting some museums, galleries, beautiful places again. But being 'stuck at home' has been great fun and very peaceful and calm. It's a joy not to rush anywhere or do clockwatching; just to live instinctively and according to our natural rhythms.
Lyddie has been writing of her own volition. She wrote several quite long and fairly legible sentences for me to explain something yesterday, then turned the paper over and did a load of squiggles on the back. When she brought me the message she explained to me what the squiggles 'said' and told me to ignore the 'silly writing' on the back because she hadn't done it 'properly'. From reading home ed blogs over the years I know that this is quite a common phenomena - the being able to do something but not confident that it's the right thing to do so scrapping it and reverting to something else - but it's the first time I've witnessed it for myself. Amazing!
