It’s not an inner circle joke as such, although I suppose ppl who know us better will know that Tim and I originally met on an email list, got to know each other by IM and phone, before meeting on my doorstep at dawn, nearly 7 years ago now.
two children later ;), we’re still going strong.
Anyway, the weekend. Went over to C’s party yesterday, with the mermaid costume I’d frantically sewn in the space of about two hours in the morning. I was quite pleased with it. Will try to get a piccie at some point. Big was a bit overwhelmed by the party, especially, bizarrely, by the game of sleeping flat fish! Although I can remember being terribly upset many years ago when I didn’t win a game of sleeping lions because they said I’d gone to sleep (I hadn’t!). Hm, that obviously smarted.
Staying over afterwards gave Big chance to spend some quality time with her friend C, and also Tim and I chance to spend some quality time with our friends Jan and Jonathon. Lovely take out (I never get to eat curries any more!) and a glass or two of wine, and nice chatting too. Would have been even better if Small had gone to bed, instead of sleeping on my knee!
Went to church this morning, late as usual, although not helped by the roadworks that had mysteriously appeared since the day before. Small got through the door into the main church hall, and didn’t even look back as he headed for the children’s table! He got someone to take off his coat, help him into the creche room…and even when he fell and hit his head, he was OK with the complete stranger who picked him up to soothe him. Must have been best part of half an hour before he decided to come back to me 🙂
Big managed pretty well, although did get a bit antsy towards the end of the service.
Back to Jan’s for lunch (more of the curry, yum!) and more chatting, before going off to meet my family for a meal. Hohum.
And home late, and Small had slept…and now it’s time that I went off to sleep too.
