Needless to say, his blood sugars were whacky and he ran consistently low all day and had two hypos. The last hypo occurred just as I was waiting to collect him and by this point he was looking not well at all. He was very glad to be home and although he enjoyed his day, there were times when he felt overwhelmed with all the hustle and bustle. I am sure things will settle down though given time. He has English and Maths tomorrow, so I'm hoping he has a good day.
Just before setting off.
After having dropped Benedict off, Pip, Dave and I travelled the short distance to Barton Grange for a well deserved beverage and second breakfast :-)
We sent this picture to Uncle Bryan ( who we were visiting later), Aunty Maureen loved butterflies and we knew this would make him smile.

A pizza tray :-)
Dave and I have fond memories of our visits to Paris, but could not justify spending £20.00 each on an Emma Bridgewater mug ... it was tempting though!
And it is that time of year when disappointingly, BG sets to work on the Christmas displays, big thumbs down :-(
Our next stop was a trip to Garstang library followed by a visit to Uncle Bryan. It was very much a case of, have homeschool will travel. Pip completed all her tasks, including her main lesson work, English, Maths and German. Thanks to Eva we have some German resources and Pip did a really great job with lesson one.
After lunch it was time for a walk, so we followed a trail that we used to do with Aunty Maureen. It was usually a post lunch, "push the kids in the push chair to get them off to sleep walk!" I don't think Pip remembers the walk, but I reckon Ben would have remembered had he been with us.
Every time we see a butterfly, we always say that Aunty Maureen is with us :-)
A chance to talk about our farming main lesson work!
Well deserved puddle jumping! Not the best of shots, because I had forgotten my camera, but at least the iphone caught the moment.
Today has been a catch up day and I must admit I am glad that I did not have the drive to college today! Thankfully Shein has offered to collect Ben tomorrow afternoon which is a great help. Taking Ben to college and returning home is a 30 mile round trip which takes just under an hour.
