A slow ponderous day today, I’ve been running on fumes all day 😦

Sadly that meant no energy at all for adventures, but the little ins have still had fun. Paige in particular, she has a school project to complete by the end of the month, namely to create something about a Tudor Monarch. So she’s decided (with our help) to paint a picture of Mary 1st – otherwise known as Bloody Mary for her short and decided unprotestant friendly rule. So we did some research, and I made sure to point out to Paige (on International women’s day no less!) that Mary Tudor was the very first British female monarch, which is a massive thing for its time. She had to fight off other male claimants to the throne, and did so, actually pacing the way for the scourge of the Spanish Elizabeth 1st. No as Paige is wanting to paint a picture it’s fortunate that we have our own Forger to provide personal tuition. 

I will get a picture of the unsigned piece before it goes off to school, but it’s a few weeks away from completion yet 😉
