Sat at seaside cafe watching DH on beach supervise children/stop them drowning. He hasn't stopped all week but I've been with the children all week (SAHM).. They have been driving me mad. So I'm just enjoying the view.... grin

Personally, I find cafe windows can be a bit difficult to see out of, something about the glass... you can miss seeing all sorts of things wink

(maybe buy him a lolly later though)

Just rest your eyes a little while, or read the paper...

Just enthusiastically wave back, he's having a blast!!

ABitSensible Sat 19-Mar-16 14:58:57

Surely he is gesturing to say have a cake with that coffee, we;'re all fine?

Cafes don't have windows that you can see out of, do they? wink

Thornrose Sat 19-Mar-16 15:01:27

Gesture? Nah, that's definitely him signalling what a great time he's having. grin

See you gesturing darling? Oh, I'm sorry, I thought you were pointing out a sea bird to the children....

In my experience, the windows of seaside cafes are often a bit salty and hard to see out of.

InQuiteAPickle Sat 19-Mar-16 15:04:37

The windows are really dirty - must be all the salt from the sea water.

InQuiteAPickle Sat 19-Mar-16 15:05:29

Great minds, FreezerBird! grin

Traitor. Now they'll all want us to join in.

spiceynutsaddiction Sat 19-Mar-16 16:30:29

I was suddenly worried if I had a second coffee it might seem like I'd had time to myself - I'm sneakily planning on some proper child free shopping time tomorrow!

MrsTerryPratchett Sat 19-Mar-16 16:41:13

Well DD is supposed to be going to the beach this afternoon with DH and her GF. If they expect me to go, I'm blaming you. <shakes fist>

spiceynutsaddiction Sat 19-Mar-16 17:25:55

It wasn't so bad. DS2, toddler, has hit that age where he only wants Daddy. It's great. grin

Oh I'm still desperately waiting for that stage. I've only a few weeks before having second child....it'll happen before that right??!! Currently it's "mummy maybe do it" for everything....

oldlaundbooth Sat 19-Mar-16 17:29:17

Mine's a latte, Ill join you 🍰

spiceynutsaddiction Sat 19-Mar-16 17:46:09

Hmm... I'm hoping it's a common phase. Maybe I'm just particularly boring! Fingers crossed it kicks in soon with your DC1 elevenweeks.

oldlaundbooth if I've got company mine's definitely a wine

DH has been away for two weeks on business - he got back this morning and I was seriously tempted to just throw the kids at him and run.

I didn't, but he is now downstairs giving them their tea while I Mumsnet and drink wine run their bath.

Two weeks is long. Enjoy your wine.
