Thought today was just an ordinary day....ready for possible visitors that may come to give me and DH our pressies (ready for our joint birthday tomorrow)...and all in vain....as usual...no-one visited....but at least the kitchen was tidy and the cushions plumped up!!! (ooH!...and i hoovered!)
Silly me for thinking people would visit.....and i have told DH that i am NOT going on a pressie hunt tomorrow...i want people to come to us- we always take their pressies to them.
BUT....despite it all...something wonderful did happen!!!!
I recieved a lovely note and card from coppertop!!!
And included were photoes of her beautiful sons.
I had the privilige of hearing her DS2 chatting away when i phone her last week....and now i can imagine what he looks like too!
So my family sucks....but i have a friend with 'special' children instead.
I know which i prefer!
So thanks CT....that was better than anything i will be given tomorrow by my families (excluding the wonderful family i have withing my 4 walls!!!!)
I was so hoping that your card would reach you in time. I still can't find a recent photo of me or dh but you'll have to picture an older dark-eyed version of ds1 (dh) and a curl-free version of ds2 (me).
If I don't 'see' you around tomorrow, have a great birthday with the Forgetfuls. xx
we went to a canal pub- and ate our meals on a barge. (anchored firmly to the sides i may add!!!!)
It's such a relaxed atmosphere there... so no-one noticed our boys grabbing chips off their plates and running off to watch the boats going up and down the locks!!!
we then went along the tow path for a walk- and ended up in a park- with a lovely wooded play area and 'hills' off grass...they loved that! 9Running up the hills and rolling down)
then tom was amazed when a 'real' cricket match started in the field next to the park.
finally- as we went back to the car we stopped to watch (and the boys helped!)...as a boat went up in the lock
When DH and I were watching the boys running freely around the field/park....particularily when they were 'exploring' around the hedges/woodland etc..........I just sat there feeling so content----no squabbles No crying.... it was perfect.
(and that was just DH & I....aha....only kidding!!!!!)
