Saturday 15 – Sunday 16 June 2019
I was feeling pretty decent on Saturday, much better than during the previous couple of days.
It was the end of term party for our local Finnish school in the afternoon. Pia set up the school with some other local families a couple of years ago. The school meets for two hours every second Saturday and is an opportunity for bilingual children to keep up their Finnish language skills and explore Finnish culture. There are also lessons for some of the native English speaking parents, including myself.
As it was the end of term party, the format was a bit different, with all of the families together in the main hall. In the morning I’d put together a presentation with the programme for the session including a selection of photos taken throughout the year. I got everything set up and took charge of the projection and sound. I was glad to have been feeling well enough to be doing something useful!
It was nice to spend some time speaking to all of the other people there once the main part of the session was over and the food and drink came out. I was tired by the time it was all over and we’d packed up. I’d had a pretty good day though.
On Sunday, however, I wasn’t feeling quite so good and stayed in bed most of the day. I got up and went out for a walk in the evening which was refreshing, but it had been a harder day than the day before.
