Little Star Homeschool

"Do not train children to learning by force and harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each." Plato

Robert has been immersed in Greek mythology, he is suddenly fascinated by all things ancient. We have the Guardian newspaper posters up and they make a great starting point. Favourite characters are Medusa (oh those snakes), Icarus, Atlas, Gaia and Prometheus.

Meanwhile I've finally got a publishing deal for my novella, Leviathan Glass. Its being released under the genre Weird Fiction and its loosely in the vein of H P Lovecraft. I'm correcting the proof copy at the moment so publication isn't far away.

I have totally reshaped the household finances re: Money Saving Expert freebies drop through the door on a regular basis, we live for a lot less and now ALL our food is home cooked in advance of when we need it according to meal plans. This had helped to compensate for my hours reducing at work. I really don't want to look for another job, I'm happy where I am and that is secondary to a writing career.

Still attending Home Ed groups and getting out and about. I am a step-grannie to three now. step-son had a daughter in February and step-daughter had another little one, also a girl. in March.
