All day the sense of Sunday has been upon us. Y’know, the sort of Sunday feeling of cosiness, happiness and a calmness. I know, what a load of tosh haha. But really, today has been such a good day! Btw, dont my lovelies look all cute before bed? I actually think Mark has fallen asleep in with Maia as they went bed over half hour ago….?!
It started off rather sad today, having to drop mother in law off at the airport just after 7.30am. Getting up and out so early has actually done wonders for us all – being holed up indoors best part of the week with a stinking cold doesnt make for a happy Mamma, kids or mother in law. Well, we weren’t unhappy lol, more frustrated with the missed chance to do something fun, or least I was. But then again, just being together watching tv and dosing off has its good points too when you havent seen one another for 11months. I really am lucky that I like my mother in law!
We went to a petting farm just before lunch with the Watt’ses, and boy was it chilly! We had a blistering 6C when we set off for the airport, 11C when we were out and now we’re at 7C. I have been itching to get out and take some pictures of the changing colours all around, but afore mentioned cold hasn’t made that possible. Luckily, ma&pa are coming over in the morning to collect the girls and Mark and I are heading off out in the woods to pick some mushrooms, and do some fishing at Nydala lake. Our neighbours have lent us a fishing rod and some funky bait stuffs so we are off to try our luck and catch dinner haha. Dear neighbours also very kindly came up with 15 books or so (Im guessing here, but there were a fair few) that their kids are far too old for, so now we are suffiently stocked for the next 7 years.
With all these books and a bit of extra space in Lily’s room, I am thinking of making up a reading corner using one of the seat sections from the old sofa and a load of pillows…very cosy and very impractical. I mean, who am I kidding?! The reading corner till turn into a jump zone and cause injuries galore…maybe this is better saved for when they are both older and able to understand the meaning of sitting still & enjoying a book together?
