Rocking on...

Had a really busy weekend.

Took my youngest to his maths challenge on Saturday. We don't know his exact score (they gave prizes to the top 3) but he was happy that he did reasonably well. I hope that we get a score at some point, but the fact that it was a county-wide contest and he was one of only 130 kids to get in is still something for him to be proud of.

The weather over the weekend was really mixed. Saturday afternoon we were supposed to do some more repairs to Humphrey's stable. Humphrey is my mom's pony and he takes a constant toll on his poor stable. The weather closed in, though, bringing winds and rain so we hunkered down and did other stuff - apart from my brief expedition to get fried chicken and ribs...

Sunday started off much nicer, so we went and did the repairs to Humphrey's house and then did a bit of shopping, picking up some stuff for a barbeque - trusting the weather to hold off - which it did! YAY! Really appealed to the caveman in me - MEAT! FIRE! WOMAN!

Then the wind and rain returned...

Did I ever say how much I enjoy cycling into a strong head-wind that is loaded with cold rain? No? Well I love it! Really, really LOVE IT!

In between things I think I managed to memorise enough stuff for tonight's test - stuff which will probably go AWOL as soon the test starts. Such is life!

Hope your Monday is a good as Mondays can be!


UPDATE

Test over! Remembered too much, had trouble writing everything down in time! Still, better than "empty brain syndrome", eh?

Your son has every reason to be proud. Though it would be nice to finish near the top, it's impressive just that he was included with this group!

Meat, Fire, Woman... is that the order of priorities? Meat before woman? I hope not ;-) You might offend Mrs. RC!

Terri - Hah, you kill me! As you well know, Mrs RC is top priority. But dinner did need to be cooked first... ;-)

I will NEVER be invited to a math competition. Unless they're looking for comic relief.
Seriously.

Glad you have the too-much-info syndrome instead.

I remembered once bringing three students to a quiz, and we won number 4 from all 66 teams. But unfortunately the prizes only went to top 3. The stinging pain...

What is the use of Humprey? Love? Show? Ride? or just something to feed?

I love BBQ, when others are doing it for me of course. :)

Princess - You would have to wear a tiara for the full effect! :-)

Shadowthorne - 4th was excellent - but I see what you mean about missing the prize. Humphrey is just something that gets fed and pampered. My mum saved him from the dog food factory many years ago...
