Whiled away the morning in a very pleasant fashion - actually really nice having a "sick" child who actually feels fine. Met friend who gave M hand, foot and mouth for a play and did a long buggy walk via a fire engine training exercise - very exciting and M was thrilled to talk to the fireman and get given stickers (love those accidental opportunities). Will be getting paddling pool out this afternoon as it is HOT!!!
I am missing your posts on FB too CM!! Next year you will be able to recruit J to help you with Elf on the shelf and he will love coming up with ideas I bet!
Looks like HF&M here again for Matilda so won't be getting any work done! Typical that after 3 days of hubby at home, it appears when he is working today and tomorrow!!! She seems perfectly well so will be doing some outdoor activities regardless and just avoiding inside activities with other kids.
TT - that is so tough for your friend. At least by you being in a good place right now, you have the mental strength and resources to help support your friend.
Dark at 4pm CC - YUCK!!!!! I really really don't miss that! And I have to say having had plenty of both hot and cold Christmas's I LOVE LOVE a hot Christmas!! The last 2 especially have been amazing - all 3 meals outside, kids can run round outside all day. But I do love the lead up to Christmas in the UK - Christmas lights in NZ in towns are pretty naff and its not dark enough to appreciate them much.
Tumble weed rolls through thread .......
We got our Christmas tree yesterday and predictably M loves it! I do too!! Had a couple of Ms friends round yesterday and we made decorations - thankfully it wax sunny so we did painting, glitter etc outside!
Hope your all having fun weekends - weather sound wild at the moment!
