Yesterday I decided that I wanted to help Ryan with his learning. The way I am approaching this is by helping him write a blog. Nothing over complicated, or too detailed. A few sentences to help him practice his spelling and how to write sentences. Obviously not everything is going to be perfect, but I hope what I teach him on the computer will translate across to paper and vice versa.
The aim of this little project I have under taken is not only to help with his spelling and computer skills, it’s also about documenting his progress as he grows and learns through the years. To prove that it is indeed him writing the blog posts, I have taken the liberty to record him typing his first one up. It took around 20 minutes for him to do this, so I have cut the audio and speeded the video up!
Although his post isn’t spelt correctly, it is legible and you can understand what he is trying to convey. The funny thing is though, if you compare what he has written, and then ask a 15-year-old to do the same, there wouldn’t be much difference with the spelling and grammar!
I have finally got around to going back to St Catherin’s Hill. I had originally planned to go yesterday, but I ended up not going because of the weather, but thankfully it has been absolutely lovely today!
In total I think we walked around 3 and a half miles, not bad for me but extremely good for Chloé! She has been really good today. I am very proud of her! We started off by visiting an old Geohash I had done 2 years previously with Ryan.
I had my Mum down on the Saturday just gone to see Chloe. We were all ill on the weekend of Chloe’s birthday so they were unable to come down. While they were here, we decided to get some photos of us all over at the park. I have picked the best of them and put them below.
I was out and about in several places around town yesterday getting quotes for the Guildhall and the Wessex hotel as locations for our wedding breakfast and reception. We had originally settled on having both the breakfast and the reception at the Holiday Inn but we are having problems getting the right food for the buffet in the evening, so we have been looking into alternative locations for them both.
I had an appointment at the Winchester Guildhall at 11am to have a look around and talk about exactly what we want, how we want it and our budget. I got a good vibe from the lady who was showing me around. She was confident that we could have our wedding breakfast there for around £1500.
The room was at the top of the building with a balcony facing the St. Giles Hill viewpoint, it was quite a view! I have included a few photos I took below.
