Breakfast was a fruit smoothie. He followed the instructions all by himself, which included 10 mins of soaking in lemon juice.
Lunch was bread rolls. We baked six of them in little bread pans. It was a freezing day here yesterday so it was hard to find a sunny spot for activating the yeast.
And dinner was lasagne, with a layer of spinach between the meat sauce.
To my shame, Ben didn't know what garlic looked like ( even though he watches me mincing garlic most nights!) and he didn't know what celery looked like. He pulled out leeks first off.
All three dishes were just delicious.

I was thinking about it, watching him at one of his twice-weekly sessions.
I showed him this Torvill and Dean clip on YouTube, from the Olympics. I realised that I was 12 when they performed this dance. I was so entranced by it, and I would have so loved to take up ice skating. But where I lived in outback Australia, there was definitely no ice rink.
So now my son is 12, and doing the figure skating lessons that I would have loved!
Ben's been taking me for lessons. I started with learning how to fall, then how to walk. I've progressed to short little glides across the ice. He's taught my husband how to skate in a circle, but says I'm not advanced enough for that yet. I said to Ben, I love that you'll tell it to me straight! Gotta love it.
It's been a busy week - job interview, lots of late nights at work.
Today I had time to stop and look around me.
I do love that I can walk around to collect the letters, and have to stop, so I don't disturb the galahs busy eating seeds near my front door.
(And obviously, this is not my photo.)
