The Sun Had His Hat On
So the sun seems to have finally decided to grace us properly & evidently with a big fat hat on…..
It’s been a strange week that seems to of just fleeted past really quickly, luckily on the whisp of a sun beam :-), we started on Sunday with a visit to the forest to hunt for boar, pan for gold in the river & damn build… All were successful.
We’ve spent a lot of time outdoors soaking up the good weather without having to tow a load of wellies and waterproofs with us & enjoyed some hazy lazy days. Towards the beginning of the week we focused on some messy play with baby Noah, filled the paddling pool with shaving foam & made some discovery bottles…. we made our own cute watering cans, danced under blossom trees & made the most of the sunshine with a bit of extreme bank rolling with the aid of a garden watering butt filled with cushions & as I sat watching the kids scramble in the butt it finally dawned on me why my children are always sporting small bruises & scrapes on their arms & legs…… I hope they have a memory for every war wound when they grow up. We also did some wheelbarrow racing inbetween clearing the garden & loading a skip & yesterday we played in the park til the sun went down…
Mila learnt how to blow a grass trumpet, although that’s all she really did as holding the grass was a bit tricky so I held & she blew… we even hedged our bets with a little snail racing & I am now firmly skint of any lose change smaller than pound coins.
It’s been a good week. I braved Tesco & managed to spend £130, return home and sit down with a realisation that there’s still really nothing much in the cupboards, although due to the weather the freezer now resembles a well stocked ice cream van, i paid the road tax with a lump in my throat & the orange mobile bills………thankfully we have just enough left to fill the car & hit the road at the weekend with the treat of a Subway on our travels. Hopefully it’s gonna be a weekend of beautiful sunrises & appreciative sunsets, sand beneath our toes & maybe a climb to eat cake in the clouds. There’s no doubt they’ll be a few arguments along the way but that’s us. My main priority for today is to contemplate what I can cook for tea with my freshly stocked cupboards….
