From the weekend:
1) We celebrated Aidan’s 10th birthday (again) on Saturday with a barbecue, this time with a couple of other families. It was just exactly as we hoped it would be, and the weather was great. We all had a fab time.
2) The freezer died on Sunday (we
have had two so it wasn’t a complete disaster), but there was something fun about liberating the contents and rehoming them. And we don’t have to make a trip to the supermarket for a few days!
3) The kids went to their first swimming lessons of the summer today (they both have one each day this week). Then, in the afternoon, M had a friend around to play, while A was out cycling with a friend, then golfing with Grandpa. I enjoyed a precious couple of hours of space – no questions, no demands. It was good 🙂 .
