been mostly hiting the books. I'm torn - the stuff itself is quite interesting but the way they want you to critically analyse it is a load of cods - IMHO. I think this because you can not be objective therefore your own constructions and discourses affect how you analyse this stuff. So how can there be a right or a wrong because all are equally valid because even my tutor is influenced by her constructions , and so on and so forth - it's a brain f**K!
Lalalalalalalalalalalaladedah - went off on one there for a bit.
I've also gone back to debating whether to have another facial piercing or not. 50/50 here, it does appeal but I hate the swelling and the healing process and will it look stoopid at my age? - I don't actually care how I'm perceived by others, this is more of a self image type thingy. Oh well what the hell - I'll think about it a bit more.
I took J out to a grown up lunch this week - he was sooooo good and we had fun. It's something we will do again. We also bought a molecule toy - magnets/sticks - I'll post a picture. He had so much fun with this - so on the h.e front this week it's been a molecular week. A world away from his h.e. group topic this week - the Victorians - but you have to go where your kids interests are. We also did a science experiment - erupting a volcano - bi-carb & vinegar and have bought a crystal growing thingamabob which we'll do over the weekend - I expect.
It's also almost time to dig over my veggie patch - and start on the ole seed trays - I'm hoping that this year J will take a more active interest in the whole process - I thought I might give him his own seed tray and a collection of seeds to plant in his very own patch - he can then tend it and reap his own harvest - it will be interesting to see how this works out. I'd like an allotment but need my family to be a part of it - so it will hinge a bit on J's enthusiasm.
On the knitting front - I ordered some ggh from get knitted to make the little summer wrap cardi in Rebecca - it's a mohair mix in a very neutral minky/beige colour - that will go with everything. This will be an experiment because normally I can't wear fluffy stuff and hate knitting with it. My wavy scarf is almost complete - will post pictures once it's done. The rest is same as last post - mind you lucky find - lining for the Torvesta Bag - wool/silk mix- light weight, reduced from 9.50 a metre to 4.50 - no complaints there!!
