Just when I thought I had all the after school activities sorted out and on an even keel, the ballet teacher has asked if the YFG would like to do another class a week. "She's doing very well and could do the exam next March if she attended two classes," she said. I replied that I would talk with the YFG about it and think about it all - we need to think about how it would fit in and the extra cost implications. Another evening out of the house, even for a short time, has an impact, and it would involve another hour in town with nothing to do. OK in the summer when I can sit in the car and read a book, but an hour wasted in winter when it would be cold and miserable in the car park.
Time is the commodity under pressure here at the moment, and I am struggling to accommodate more activities, so there will be more talking before we decide about this. I am veering, as you can tell, towards the "No" camp!
