It has been such a wonderful weekend, as you may have read in my previous post, Paul and I celebrated our eleventh wedding anniversary and what an amazing time we had.
I was rather lucky to begin the day with a lovely lay in, meanwhile Paul took the kids for a blast on the beach and a dash around the dunes. It feels rather odd seeing pictures of the kids and our puppy running around the dunes, it’s been a long time since our Mo was able to do such things. I miss her so much especially so during special occasions as I am reminded of all those times that she spent by our side.
After having a quick lunch and a playing a few games, I then took the kids through to my parents where they spent the night. I later returned home where we were spoilt rotten by the in-laws with cards and gifts before putting on my glad rags and making my way out to the local italian, where Paul and I stuffed ourselves stupid.
We then returned home to relax and to rest with the final few episodes of Orange Is The New Black before heading back out for round two at our local pub, where we danced our socks off to an amazing live act before heading home in the early hours.
Whilst I missed spending time with the kids, it was really nice to get out and to actually enjoy time together, without the never-ending demands which our splendid sprogs place upon us.
The weather is pretty wonderful today and having had the kids returned to us, we have since pumped up the paddling pool and have spent the majority of the afternoon dozing on the decking whilst the kids busied themselves with splashing, chasing and generally aggravating one and other – normality has resumed!
