|Yesterday in the park|
We started on our crib revamp project on Saturday (I promise to show you all when it's done but Marcia have an idea what we are doing) and after an hour's wait (I promise - actually 65 minutes) in the "cut queue" in Builders warehouse I thought I was going off my rocker but the kids were brilliant through the wait on the promise of Mac Donalds Happy Meals. My phone helped as did two notepads and pens but I was incredibly tankful to the kind man in front of me who offered to let us go before him in the queue as we had only one piece of board to cut and he had a whole project. Or maybe he was getting as stressed as I was with the kids all over the cart etc. But we hit a tiny glitch - I measured the height on one and then decided to use the other without realizing that the heights were not the same. So I need to get new "stud or bolts or whatevers so we can adjust the other one. I am so looking forward to complete this - I need it for my "get something done" gratification.
For the rest, I finished a lovely book "The Music Room" by William Fiennes. A great read about a rather different childhood and a loving memorial of his epileptic brother's life. A must read if you like biographies. And started with a rather unusual read for me - but more about that later.
So it's with a rather sad heart that I am saying goodbye to summer with some pictures from last Saturday that was a glorious summer day. My MIL and I took the kids to Zita Park (including friend K) I just love how much the boys have grown into loving the water and pools this summer. We had a lovely afternopon slightly marred by a bee attack after we got ice creams (C had one sting on his thumb and L two on his face - luckily neither of them are allergic).
So, what was your weekend like? Feeling the change of seasons?
