So last week Am/Jarv’s schooled plummeted to the depths of school inspectorate hell with a ‘less that satisfactory’ grading.
So its a week since we came back from a successful ski holiday to Eben in Austria.
Amelie and Jarvis continued to flourish on the slopes although after some tough negotiation they only had 3 days with Grace & Honey in SkiSchule.
This year they were looked after by Wouter – a towering fuzzy haired Dutch kid who said standards of behaviour by Dutch kids was slipping year by year. We loved Wouter (Valter to us!) and wish him all the best as he attempts to ski-skool around the world
I wonder if Jarvis will ever fall in love with Scott Walker or David Bowie?
Whilst Gaby tours the naked shores of Scandinavia with beautiful Amelie, Jarvis and I have a precious 100 hours together.
Jarvis is spending a few days at Kool Crew summer camp @ Mile End leisure centre.
First day went well although when I went to pick him up he was sat on his own cross legged. He didn’t make any fuss but it felt like he was ready to come home.
Day 2 and when I picked him up he was soaked. The lady carer said that he had poured water over himself to keep cool. Tonight he confessed that a girl had made him do it and he knew it was naughty. He said he doesn’t want to go back for Day 3. He says its boring. Football is ok but then when they go to the rooms they are just left to do drawing.

But… it hasn’t stopped us having fun
