I also have a whole pile of photos on Flickr
The same could be said for red trousers too I suppose.
Sarah went off to work early today to make up for time spent out of the office earlier in the week. After getting dinner sorted and having had some indoor playtime, Mathew and I wandered up the lane to get some eggs and courgettes from our friends.
We spent a good couple of hours put and about, little realising that the sun was as strong as it was. Mathew, George and his sister Autumn played on the trampoline and ran about in the sunshine. It wasn’t until Sarah got home at about 6 that the effects of the sun were noticed. Mathew and I had both got red noses and rosy cheeks. Oops!
Mathew had a shower before Sarah put him to bed. He’s got more and more shower-friendly probably as a result of having a shower after swimming each week.
He’s fast asleep upstairs, Sarah’s nattering away on the phone and I’m settling down with a cold beer. It’s nearly 9pm!
We awoke this morning to thunder, lightning and torrential rain that Mathew reliably informed me was dragons fighting in the sky. The lightning was their fire and the thunder was them falling over. We couldn’t see them because they were above the clouds. The rain was a good thing because it made the grass grow long and the cows ate it. Makes sense.
How long has it been since the last blog entry? Too long I can tell you!
Since the last entry, Mathew has now progressed to the advanced class at swimming. He’s now with children more his age/ability and the lesson is a bit earlier, at 11 rather than 12.15 so we’ve still got a good bit of the day left.
Sarah and I went to London for the day, supposedly to a leaving do but due to a cock-up on the directions front we ended up eating and drinking as we walked from Covent Garden to Hyde Park. It was a bit of a relief to have dinner and not be constantly asking “do you want that cutting?” pr saying “please stop that. Pick that up. Don’t do that”. Mathew stayed in Leeds with Granny Tricia and we got back late on Friday so we stayed the weekend.
Mathew went the whole night last night without a nappy and without incident! As a reward we went out on his balance bike this afternoon and whizzed up and down the path put the front as well as doing some skids out the back on the gravel. Don’t tell Sarah though.
He’s finally outgrown his first car seat so we had to order a new one today. We managed to get something for his old one so that should offset the cost a bit.
It rained last night. Still not any cooler or less muggy. Not that I’m complaining of course. Enjoy it whilst it’s here!
