How to Homeschool when Mother is under-the-weather -- THE SEQUEL!!!!

When Mom is ill...
school in bed!
Right.  Here it is, January, and I'm once again writing about how I coped with educating my children at home while I was ill.

Back in September, I lost my voice.  Over Christmas, I had the flu; but we weren't homeschooling then, so it didn't matter so much.

Last week, however, I both lost my voice and had a flu-like illness that kept me in bed for about ten days, off and on.

The maths must go on!

And did we give up school?  Well, for a few days, it was cancelled.  Then I realised that it was a lingering thing, and that I was going to have to do something about it.

Here are some photos of the kinds of things the kids did while I was ill: some with me, some on their own or in pairs/groups, some on the computer or telly, and quite a lot of it in my bed!!!
