Rewind. Instead of thinking about work I will think about my weekend of relaxation.
For the first time in many years (I think?) my whole family, as in my brother, sister and I, spent a weekend together at mum and dad’s house. It was just like the old days – loud, crazy and fun. The kids had a great time too. Unfortunately the head cold that was sending me insane all of last week took hold. I spent most of Saturday sleeping or curled up on the couch moaning doing very little. At least if I have to succumb to illness, where better to be unwell than at mum and dad’s where there is someone there to cook meals, make cups of tea, entertain the monsters and clean up all the mess. I did manage to leave the house once, for a few minutes, to wander down to the lake to let the kids explore.
These are few of my favourite photos from the weekend.
I even let girl-child play with my Barbie dolls. Of course I didn’t let her take them out of the boxes. She spent hours playing Barbie castles. Even boy-child helped make towers.
