Well, I wanted to write something profound on Freedom day and how I feel about it, but then I read Supermom's post, and well, she said it all. Just what I feel.
We had a day at home, quiet and very rainy. Amazingly no kid completely went cabin crazy. I didn't go crazy! We painted a bit, decorated Marie biscuits with icing and ate them and at least had an hour on the bikes in the driveway - the rest of the garden was way too wet. We had a great 2 hour nap and i managed through it all to at least tidy the puzzles a bit and sort them out. I swear just keeping the toys together and sorted can be a full time job.
Hunter was a busy boy while I minded the kids - he cleaned and defrosted the second fridge in the garage and did quite a bit of tidying there too.
So that was Freedom day in a nutshell- now I am sitting with my glass of Yonder Hill Merlot (our "house wine" at present) waiting for him to braai a lekker steak. Cheers!
