For us Friday is the new Sunday. Rupert has taken Olivia and Leo to the golf course. Since we moved here he has rediscovered golf. I catch him practicing his golf swing almost incessantly; in the supermarket queue, while watching the news, when collecting the children. Heaven knows that the locals must think.
Bea and I are having a lovely morning, doing her homework and some sewing. She has also compiled a little list of things children can do if they are bored and asked me to post it, so here it is:
What to do ??????
And what to not do???????
When you have nothing to do you can draw you can play a game you can play truth or dare you can skip on a skipping rope if you have a kite you make it fly if you have a laptop you can watch video’s on it or check you ‘re mails you could go shopping if you ask you ‘re mummy if she say’s yes then you a can go with her you could go on a boat for a walk you can play the playstation and you can watch the t.v but the one thing you can’t do is cook without you’re mummy or a grown up around you can’t go on a bowncanny incase you fall off and you must not light any candles you must not do that because you can burn the house or you can burn you ‘re finger ?
So there you have it. I might also add ‘take self-portraits with mummy’s phone’ like the one above.
My list would be as follows; sleep, read, sleep some more, get my nails done, read some more, eat, drink, sleep, watch a good movie with the children snuggled up next to me, go for a walk, sleep. And I think we all know what Rupert’s would be….how about yours?
