Let’s quickly recap on the events of the week so far:
Monday: YES! I’m so ready to go back to work. I’m going to kick this years butt. 300 emails? You ain’t got nothing on me, bam bam bam get out my inbox. I own you. Muhuhahahahahaha What’s that kids? You want to play games with me and swim? Let’s do it. Water garden – tick. Healthy supper – tick. Blog acknowledged and given a bit of love – tick. Same goes for the husband – tick.
Tuesday: Let’s go kids. I said let’s go kids. Thank you for helping Knox with his shoes. Bye I love you. Coffee, make it a double – going without it didn’t go well yesterday. I thought I took care of these emails yesterday. Commission reconciliations until I want to pull my eyes out with the calculator. Another coffee. Relax with the kids at in laws, eat an amazing supper. Feeling content.
Wednesday: Woah now, how did it get so late so quickly? If I’d been doing the commission recons it would be 7.30 forever. No baby you can’t come with me to work – I’ll miss you too. WHERE IS THE COFFEE?! What the heck inbox, just chill out. How can people looking for a job just not show up to an interview? Unbelievable. Ooops, I’m late to fetch the kids. No you can’t swim. Let’s water the garden. Oh no, I need to go shopping, I don’t have anything for supper – takeaways it is. What did you say? Bed at 9.30? Yes please.
Thursday: Is it the weekend yet? I need another holiday.
That’s a pretty accurate summary of my week so far. I could quite easily rewind the last 4 weeks and relive them over and over again. For now I’ll just keep staring at the pictures and having little vacations in my mind.
Kyla insisted that we investigate the dress up box and that we ALL take part. Knox who was initially very keen, bowed out at the last minute. So hard to get all three of them interested in something all at the same time.
This girl and the faces that she pulls. She also has her own gibberish that often entertains us with, so funny. Sometimes I wonder whether not putting her into modelling/talent scouting will be denying her natural ability to entertain everyone.
We so enjoyed having the time to go out and enjoy the various restaurants in our area. We loved Graze in Kenilworth (the breakfast ham and cheese sandwich with the poached egg and mushroom sauce, though not diet friendly, is absolutely AMAZING!)
It has to be noted that in 11 years of being with Seth he has played Monopoly with me about twice. To say he’s not a fan is an understatement. So when he willing played the Junior version with the girls and I a couple of times this holiday it reaffirmed how much he loves our girls.
We had way to may milkshakes this holiday, but the best one so far was the one at Stodels in Kenilworth. No, not for the flavour, creaminess or even the container, it’s all about the presentation! Side note, parents might not be so happy so consider this a heads up.
