So, it turns out home-schooling is most definitely not fun.
I genuinely thought it might be. Maybe. For a second. In reality though, it takes a super-human amount of patience, and more energy and hard work than I ever realised, to coax a seven and an eight-year-old to sit down at a table and focus on a task for more than five minutes.
Despite some trepidation about how I could juggle work, I had every good intention when I started. I assured myself that, given the glowing reports my two girls have always received from school, the whole thing would be fine. How wrong I was.
