so this evening, all was normal apart from the sun was shining, i know the sun shining, shhhh, don’t want to jinx it, but it was so bright it almost blinded me. anyway. i arrived at nursery to collect ronnie. he told me about his day and how he was growing dinosaurs in a fish bowl, that he doesn’t like pre-school yogurt and that tomorrow is spots birthday party, not in the nursery room, just in pre-school so he wants to dress as spiderman.
we left and made our way home.
ronnie : mummy stop!
hpmcq : why? what’s the matter?
ronnie : mummy stop i want to go there
hpmcq : but that’s a pub ronnie
ronnie : i want to go there with albie
hpmcq : you can’t go to the pub with albie, ronnie your too small
ronnie : yes i can, i want to meet albie in the pub to do lunch
ronnie is 3 1/2 and albie is 8 months old
ronnie : mummy what you doing?
hpmcq : i’m just going to the toilet rooster, won’t be a mo
ronnie : ok you tell me when you finished and i’ll come wipe your bottom
well i guess the easter weekend had to come to an end at some point
we’ve done lots
we watched pirates in 3d, played in the park, wondered when naughty friday is, eaten our body weight in barbecued prawns, make some new artwork for the teapot, drank booze and a little more booze, eaten dinner at the savoy, got home past midnight, spent time with the in-laws and scoffed fabulous amounts of chocolate because we could and it would most certainly be wrong not to.
today was the last day of this mini holiday and with the miserable weather outside, we declared that it was indeed a pyjama, duvet and dvd day. a leg of lamb was waiting for us, so it was time for a bit of family HPMcQ time.
during our dvd interval, ronnie insisted that we hauled the train set out. i started to build a magnificent railway on our living room rug. however before i could finish my master piece rooster was being far too much of a keeny pants, and was trying to get the trains on the tracks pdq and clearly i was simply just in his way. from behind me i heard this kind request
“mummy, can you please move your big fat bum?”
