Lazy Sunday afternoon...
Our day started with a flurry of activity...ripping the last bits of our old kitchen out in preparation for the new one being fitted tomorrow, dropping the children over to their grandparent's house, driving around trying to find some Super Unleaded (what's happened...why is there none left?), a quick trip to Sainsburys to stock up on ready meals for our week without a sink or oven, packing the car for trips to the tip, then a hurried lunch for two on the floor in our newly empty room. Over to the grandparent's to pick the children up and then off to take Zebra-girl straight to a birthday party...it starts to rain...I rush her into the party and then we bundle Dinosaur-boy into his pushchair hoping to go for a walk on the common, but we realise we have forgotten his raincover, so we put a scarf over his knees and he looks like a little old man...he grumbles...then suddenly he is ASLEEP and we find ourselves with two hours to ourselves and a pile of Sunday newspapers underneath the pushchair waiting to be read. We scuttle off to a cafe, worrying that our dash across the cobbles will waken the Dinosaur...but he slumbers on...and ahhhh, how lovely; fresh mint tea for me, a black coffee for Ian and papers all over the table. An unexpectedly wonderful lazy Sunday afternoon.
