If you have a teenager from 11-12 years who hates reading, I highly recommend it! (particularly boys)*I did pull this series out of the school library a few years back as felt the content was too much for my cohort of students. I might start reading aloud and see how we go*
I'm tag team reading them at the moment with my youngest - he is not a reader, but has been totally engrossed in this series. (and got into trouble for reading at the past weekend's scout camp, when he should have been helping with stuff - a secretly pleased mother here when I heard that!)
write 5 letters
essay (started and made huge progress)
clear out kitchen
garden path swept (ha - well I did, but pile still there to put in compost!!)
plant more winter veges
ironing pile to zero (ha - who am I kidding!)
catch up with 3 friends (2 down)
read 2 books (1 done)
knit (oh YES and mastered 2-at-once socks once again after having done no work on them for weeks!)
And it has been simple things like book buying ($ 1.00 books for many friends and school!) and piles more since!
Five more days to blitz that essay!!!
