Jam packed weekend7 May , 2012
I could do with a nap like that right about now… 😉
This was one crazy busy weekend for us!
Friday night we visited with my folks as we usually do…Saterday morning Nicola and I went for a walk to a local park and I had a fine time trying to convince her to head back home…in between all that we had Martha over to come clean and iron for us a bit…in the afternoon we met up with my old boarding school roommate and her two daughters (and another friend of hers) at Papachino’s for lunch and the girls played till they literally dropped…after that we went for a visit at my folks again and we decided to join them on Sunday at my aunt’s house in Pretoria for a braai too (my cousin’s kids and wife was there too, and again the kids played till they dropped).
I don’t usually arrange more than one social a weekend because it sometimes just gets too much and there’s nothing left of your weekend for relaxing, but it was actually all very nice and we had a great time. Nicola is getting more and more social with other kids and I could tell that she really enjoyed playing WITH them and not just BESIDES them too. It’s a big thing really – I want to encourage that.
We had the best nap when we got home from Pretoria too, which unfortunately left me being unable to sleep last night when it was actual bedtime so I’m shuffling around in a bloodshot-eyes-daze again today. I would have seriously considered taking a duvet day if I didn’t have three important meetings lined up that I couldn’t move.
I have lots of photos of the weekend past, but as I’m sure you’re used to by now, I haven’t downloaded them yet. 😆 We’ll get there eventually – promise. I am not going to attempt anything more strenuous than getting through the rest of the day for now. I’ll think of something profound to say again tomorrow.
Have a super Monday…or what’s left of it. *yawn and stretch*
