I Found Lovin
What can be a challenge with one is a pleasure with two and suddenly in 24 hours it's all transformed and changed.
That extra pair of hands on the weekend makes the highest peak seem navigable.
The new sleeping arrangements a huge success. O slept in til 9:30am and S till 9am - no wonder the week has been so rough and tough with 3 or 4 hours less sleep per night than is required. Getting up at 5am when, left to your own devices closer to nine would be better, can't be nice.
So the lark, E, 5 and I headed off out early to Horsham to collect the penultimate free lego a ninjago set and run a few errands together. 1 on 1 he is a delight and a pleasure unrecognisable from the attention deficient sibling.
S had another mega allotment session last night TDO says she pleases herself making lotions and potions here and there - mostly strongly scented ones to put the carrot fly off the trial and is totally self sufficient judging what needs to be watered and so on.
The rest of the day has seen, in no particular order of importance or chronology: Fimo, chalking on the patio, O inventing with water and funnels, a new dragon game on the tablet, re inspired lego thanks to the new, much lighter, location; grand prix qualifying and the usual cooking, in preparation for a visit from The Smalls paternal grandparents tomorrow and, of course, eating.
There seems to have been no transition from winter to summer this year. In the past 72 hours we have made the transition from central heating on cold weather schedule to searching out the fan that we didn't need at all last summer.
S is really enjoying the "Time Travelling Cat" by Julia Jarman and used it as her hangman on the patio today.
Around 4pm we headed down to the Beach, Littlehampton,we have found from past experience that late Saturday afternoon / early evening suits our complexions, temperaments and tide times when a weekend of good weather is forecast
O, who was 3 last month, drew an O in the sand at the beach tonight. first time he has done that.
Thanks for all the lovely messages after yesterdays rather depressing post. Your support means more than you know :)
