Well, a change of scenery and position is as good as a rest!

Enjoying the spring weather while working.

One of our favourite places to do work was in a local hotel. In the winter they had a beautiful fire lit every day that we would sit beside and work and in the Summer we went out to the walled garden and enjoyed having hot chocolate while we worked.







I took Sean to a mayjor toy shop to help him figure out persentages (sales on toys with 25% off etc) just for a change of scenery. I found that lessons taught in an unusaul way usually stuck for longer.

Having a break from work and enjoying chess or draughs in a local catfe. We did this regurally over the years. It was good for both of us!
