Happy moments a plenty today! I started the day by tickling my two year old and eight year old into hysterics as we hid under the duvet covers to evade imaginary crocodiles. I then had Sunday lunch (a sausage casserole) prepared and cooking in the oven before meeting one of my besties for a chinwag over a chai latte in town. And having pinched her brilliant “screen-free-til-3” weekend rule, I left the boys at home playing chess! Yes, chess!! Mid morning Dave and I took the kids and dog to Trent Park for an “isn’t nature wonderful” walk. After an hour of stream stomping, tree climbing, mud flinging fun (marred only by my desperate need for a wee and Reece’s complaints that his toes has frozen solid), Seb summed up the morning in classic info-mmercial style with the comment “screen-free time is actually really good because we can play together!” After a hot lunch and a toe-thaw, the boys and I spent a cozy afternoon in the cinema watching the surprisingly amusing/moving/frightening/tear-jerking Big Hero 6 and Dave took Niamh swimming. So my happy moment has been tricky to shortlist as I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy a fair few today. Even the 15 minutes I spent with Reece at bedtime, listening to him read an entire chapter of The Demon Dentist (and only stumbling over the words “incredulous” and “surreptitiously” which I’m sure even David Walliams himself struggles with…) would make the cut on any normal day. So my day 4 happy moment is day 4 itself. I’m now bracing myself for the Monday morning blues.
