A Fish Called Holly...

Oh dear, it seems I spoke too soon because Issy's fish called Holly has disappeared overnight. Tbh we didn't notice until this evening when we were feeding them and Issy said 'Where's Holly gone?' So dh raked about and stirred them up but no Holly. It may have been the dreaded heron, but I think he probably would have ate them all, well more than one anyway! Lets hope she's hiding, dh is especially hoping this because he'll have to replace her at the weekend if she's not.

Other than the missing Koi, we've had a nice day with HE friends over. We didn't do any school work but all enjoyed the sun - well it might be gone tomorrow!

Issy is counting down her last days at school (9 to go) and has told some of her friends she's leaving. Fortunately I get on well with one of her closest friend's mums and they only live a short walk through the woods, so we're planning some meet ups. My Sonlight curriculum for her is now at Stansted Airport - I love the Fed Ex tracking.

So we're sort of prepared. Hettie is drifting along a bit so we need to get back to it, but I'm working tomorrow morning and she's off to do planting with grandad, although I've insisted maths workbook and reader goes too. Not sure what exam results she'll end up with, but she'll sure know all about gardening!

lots of maths in gardening! As I am a recently new allotmenteer, I can assure you I'm always measuring out plots and calculating germination times and how long I have left to plant them before it's too late! If she likes she can do some trig and come build me a greenhouse :D *now I'm running like the wind before you boot me off your blog :P*
