Cloudy – Fri 20th March 2015

By | March 20, 2015

The solar eclipse passed us by, cloudy was the word.  Much to the relief of D tbh.

She was worried she’d hurt her eyes, worried that the pets would be affected, we walked to school with D keeping her head firmly downwards, not wanting to look out for the usual visual checkpoints – birds, nests, trees etc.

It went very cold, stayed cloudy, didn’t go dark  and that was it.

At T’s school, a few miles away, in countryside and clearer skies, it got darker in the classroom.  He enjoyed the experience as they watched it on a big screen.  

With T, it was relatively easy to explain the astronomy and why no one should look directly at the sun, but especially today.

With D, it was all very literal – as mentioned above – she didn’t want to raise her head at all.

C’est la vie.  

She was pleased to see me at the end of the day, pleased everyone was okay and a definite TGIF feeling as she looks forward to heading to her favourite SN playground tomorrow.  T has a football day, perfect for him.

This is how happy she was last time we went, hoping to replicate that big smile tomorrow.
