Well, it’s Monday and it time to join The Monday Club, with Sarah Miles from Hello Wall.
We had an exeat weekend – no Saturday school – yipeee. Our weekend started with film night on a Friday, where we stop living by the clock, and once home, don our PJs and sit in front of a film. With me working full time and 6 year old Daughter in Year 2 and 4 year old Son in Reception, Husband working long days in a school, it’s good to stop sometimes.
Anyway, as it was a special weekend, when we were all together for the entire weekend, we made the most of it. Saturday morning was Jazzercise in the Village Hall, especially fun for Daughter who wants to be a Strictly Dancer when she grows up, and this seems to be first step. In the afternoon, after cookie making and clearing up, Daughter’s Godmother came for a visit, which was great fun. She works in London and is always happy to return to the fresh country air!! On Sunday we decided to go Ten Pin Bowling, one lane for the younger ones with side barriers up and launcher at the ready, and a second lane for the adults. We had two games and both Daughter and Son beat Daddy and Mummy in the second game. They were very pleased. I love bowling, but am terrible at it. Husband coaches me every time, but I fear I am an awful pupil. I found the side gutters very successfully, even in quick succession! Lunch followed at Pizza Hut and as we drove home, two very tired boys slept, and the girls giggled. Us adults put the world to rights and ironed out the problems and irritants of the workplace! Once home we had a visit from the Grandparents who have just returned from Switzerland.
Now it is back to the busy working days, and I even get to go to work this Saturday (boo hiss).
