It's a bank holiday weekend here in the UK. That of course means it is pouring with rain. Traditionally for us, bank holidays have generally meant get-togethers with friends of one description or another. Somehow, this year that doesn't seem to have happened. This weekend we were suppose to be emptying our ramshackle, prefab single garage, in preparation for the fact that it will soon get knocked down and a shiny new double erected in its place. To say it's not the best weather for it is an understatement.
Instead, husband and I yesterday took advantage of his mum staying over in order to pop off to Toys 'R' Us to buy DD2 a present for her birthday in a couple of weeks' time. (We never take the children with us - they are completely ignorant of the existence of this idea of adult hell, and we'd like to keep it that way! It's bad enough trying to wrestle them free of the Early Learning Centre)
Of course, said Toy Superstore does not just sell children's toys. Oh no. There are also toys for
grown ups boys. We have been toying with the idea of getting a Wii for a while now, and hubby got a reasonable bonus from work this year, so was allowed to go and spend it on a toy (mine will be going on a handbag I think - hurrah!).
not clearing out the garage, clearing out my clothes, playing on the Wii and attempting to keep the children sane whilst staring at the rain normal service has been temporarily suspended.
