I still feel half asleep…25 March , 2013
You can ask anyone who knows me…I never sleep late. I have never actually been able to pull it off. Yet all I seem to want to do at the moment is sleep! Obviously my body wants to try hibernation as an alternative to getting through this coming winter awake? Must be…
We had an action packed weekend. On Friday my aunt and my cousin’s two children came over to my folks and spent the night. His son is 5 now and his daughter 3, in fact she’s just a few weeks younger than Nicola, and in general they all get on very well.
Hahaha! One thing is for certain – the pink terrorist is not very good at sharing, especially when she wasn’t expecting company to begin with. When we got there Markus was playing with something small, and Nicola went bananas. She did not stop wailing until he gave her everything back, never mind that when they’re at their house she happily plays with all their things and they never complain. Even reminding her of this did nothing to stop the hysterics. (Definitely going on to the list of things I need to work on with her).
After dinner the mood improved dramatically, thank goodness. They all played together quite happily after that, and I got some lovely photos of the three of them together on Friday night and Saturday during the day. (I’ll post them after I download them of course).
On Sunday we joined Melinda for a picnic at Delta Park. The weather was glorious! I’ve decided that autumn weather must now be my new favourite picnic weather. It wasn’t cold enough to be uncomfortable or make you wish you were inside instead and not too hot either. I could have stayed in that park all day in that weather.
I don’t know if it’s the cooler weather or the school and Easter holidays, but the park was magically quiet as well and we had no trouble keeping track of the little people in the crowds. Loved it! 🙂
It was just one of those nice low key weekends. We got up to plenty, but it still feels like we managed to rest quite a bit too. I’m sure next weekend will be filled with sugar rush from Easter eggs, so probably not all that laid back like this one.
Speaking of Easter…do you guys usually do the hunt on the Saturday or the Sunday? And what else have you got planned for the weekend? I feel like taking Nicola to go see a movie, is there anything good and animated on at the moment?
*tried a different setting on my phone for this one – hahaha – sometimes it really does feel like I’m outnumbered, even though there is only one of her. 😉
