‘Tis the last day of my holidays and I’m back to work tomorrow, so the aim of today has been relaxation.
My movements today have limited, but it is near 40 degrees outside – so what the hey. I ventured out very briefly to fulfil the desires of my daughters – this should win me Mother-of-the-year award (and it’s only January 2)!
Kid1 and Kid2 have been taking turns soaking in the cool balm of their new wading pool. Designed for 3 year olds, my 11yo and 14yo are proving there are no age restrictions to water fun.
I have removed clothes from the clothesline – the beauty of this weather is quick drying laundry, painted my nails (fingers & toes) and finished The Magician’s Nephew. I have to admit here that I have never read the Narnia series beyond The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe, so this is my first line up of books for the year. I contemplated buying them as ebooks, but do want my children to read them so will need to buy the paper versions.
Tonight, after doing the dishes, I will play a game with the kids (probably Cluedo) while I fold clothes. It’s been generally a slow day, spent in a lazy daze. Lovely.
