Week 8: C25K

This week I have restarted the Couch to 5km (C25K) running program. This isn't my first attempt, but I haven't actually managed to complete it yet. I have got around 6 weeks through it before though.

Week 7:

Half Term Homework - Solids, Liquids and Gases:

LittleBit's Learning Log for half term was to complete 2 pages of her learning log on this term's topic. We decided that as we lack the kitchen of Heston Blumenthal, we probably weren't going to get all three on a plate without having ice, water and steam, which is less exciting than you might imagine. However, one of my colleagues mentioned something he'd seen on the BBC website... Bottle Rockets. Now that sounded like exactly the thing we needed. Take one solid and one liquid, mix them up to create a gas and some other liquid, and an explosive reaction that can launch a bottle into, well, about 10 feet in the air. Still, it was science, and fun.

Week 6, 100th Blog Post and a family walk

This week, Beloved and I walked to the pub, where we met LittleBit (who had been with grandparents) and had some lunch before we walked home again. It's around a five mile round trip, and it was cold, bitterly cold, and mainly uphill on the way there.
Looking back to the Water Tower, very close to the house

2017 - Weeks 4 & 5 - Kung Hey Fat Choi

Beloved and I made it to the cinema to see T2 Trainspotting, which I really enjoyed. I'm glad I didn't see any trailers beforehand, and I'm glad I re-watched Trainspotting beforehand. 
From Wikipedia
We laughed a lot, as did other people in the cinema, but not everyone. Still not sure if they didn't get it, or our sense of humour is warped. Anyway, 5/5 in part for nostalgia, and in part for comedy value.
