Woken by howls of hysteria as a child had trodden on a splinter downstairs. However, as soon as it had blown up it subsided when the shock of a small pain went away ago. Maybe it was practice for the Drama Festival later today?
So I got up and had breakfast and then went back to finish off a NewScientist before taking the dramatic child off to the University to do a dress rehersal, at 10.15. I took in my laptop and plugged in (with permission!) to reply to an email enquiry about successful usage of 'dalek' bins. The dress rehersal didn't take long and I only managed the one email reply... although it was quite a detailed one...
My son emerged elated and happy, all had gone well. A happy cycle home, in time for me to catch the last bits of Countryfile and the weather forecast for the week ahead.
Lunch went quickly and 2pm approached all to soon, so we all set out on our bikes to go to the Central Hall for the Citywide Youth Drama Festival, based on the Mystery Plays.
When we arrived, my son had forgotten the bear mask and dummy that Gill made as part of his costume... so I cycled back home and got them and cycled back to the University in time for the first performance, which was from another school, not my children's.
So we all watched the different performances and were glad that our boy's one went well just before the interval. I took the youngest one home and Gill stayed there to see the other 4 performances. I got home and made pasta and veg, and some carrot soup for tomorrow.
During the evening, discovered this http://www.dothegreenthing.com/ but didn't have as much time as I'd have liked to explore it... may go back to it...
