We've had a great day today, and are set to have another one tomorrow as we set off for a grand family adventure! More about that soon .....
Today started off with a sleep-in for some fortunate family members (do I need to mention that I wasn't one of them? No, I didn't think I did...), breakfast and a whole hour playing- er, learning with Math manipulatives. Thank you so much Jane, they were very much enjoyed!!
A lovely phone-call from Grandad Fern (we're all looking forward to seeing you next week!!), and then a visit from our little friend Declan for a couple of hours while his mummy had a well-deserved rest. :) Having my big girl around to help with little boys and not-so-little boys was GREAT! And hooray for Dr. Seuss!
A big rest after Declan was picked up, then a great outdoorsy afternoon spent playing in the sand, jumping on the trampoline, washing, folding, bird-watching (aren't these Lorikeets stunning?), gardening (Saraya and I managed to plant out a whole patch, I am so happy! it was one of those afternoons that just went on and on-in a good way) and generally getting very dirty.
Long, warm lavender baths soon fixed that. Have I ever mentioned how much I love really really warm lavender baths in the cold months? So, so much. Actually, I'd take them pretty much anytime they're offered. :) Heck, I give my kids one every single night - even the scent and the ambiance of them instantly relaxes me, and we all know we can do with a bit of that during the crazy, pre-dinner hour, right?!
So it's been another good day. Getting to finish it off with blogging is always the icing on the cake for me too. :) Off to bed with my husband and our wonderfully warm feather doona!
Oh, just one more thing.
Is it just me?
