We have had a lovely few days entertaining P1, P2 and their children. Well actually they’ve pretty much entertained themselves, today in particular has been a day of doing nothing much alongside one another, very relaxing, if a little lazy 😉
‘Nothing’ included a trip to the bottle bank/corner shop for Anna and Gwenny, where they got very wet as it suddenly poured with rain. Listening to part 3 of the Horse and his Boy on BBC7, along with a bit more hama beading. Eye Toy, Singstar and some driving game or other on the PS2. Racing around with guns (the toy variety, obviously 😉 ) Some reading, a bit of Animal Crossing … and a fair bit of food!
Last night was nice too … roast chicken followed by posh Sainsbury’s desserts which the children didn’t like all that much (oh dear, what a shame 😉 ), got the kids just about sorted then watched the Apprentice together along with wine and yummy chocolates, then chatted over cds for a while … the older girls were still awake when we went to bed though!!
Personally I just enjoyed being in the company of friends … and I was pleased that it didn’t feel as though too much had changed despite us being traitors to home ed 😉 I’m always amazed at how the children get on so well with one another too, I think Joe especially enjoyed having Ernest here
So far so good, only one item found that will need returning, Buttercup’s Pants book … I’ll do a swap for the AC:WW guide in 10 days’ time 😉
I liked the fact that P1 blogged for me yesterday, I think I might actually make it a pre-requisite that if any of my blogging friends come round they have to do a guest blog post here, it would amuse me, at least 😉
Tomorrow will be a day of tidying up and washing, I think …
