Done and dusted
As Porky Pig used to say at the end of those wonderful cartoons, “a-tha.... a-tha….. a-that’s all folks”. Christmas chaos is over for another year.
All the usual promises to “only buy one present next year” or “let’s spend the money and go away for Christmas” and so on have been aired.
We had a very relaxed Boxing Day; nothing was planned and we all watched Cars on DVD – it’s been Joseph’s favourite since we went to the cinema to see it back in August. That took us up to lunchtime, then over to see some friends and their two girls for a chat and several cups of tea.
Nothing stressful; no noise, no arguing, no more wrapping paper; just a relaxing afternoon.
A nasty sniffle of Missy’s kept us indoors yesterday but today was beautiful and mild so we went to the park.
We saw lots of dog’s on our walk, all pointed at with an accompanying “gog” from Annabel.
Joseph reminded me that he still wants to get a dog at some point in the not too distant future and said, “I wish mummy didn’t have an allergic!”
His leaving the sentence hanging made me laugh out loud in the middle of the park drawing some strange looks, particularly from those walking their “gog’s”.
I know tomorrow’s only Friday but already I don’t want to go back to work next week!
