Mothers Day

Don't know where the apostrophe goes, or even if there is one, so I'm leaving it out.

My MD started last night when ANM made us a delicious early MD dinner of Siamese chicken drumsticks. Truly droolworthy!

This morning Little V woke up at 5:15ish and decided he was awake for the day. I think we played for a bit in my half asleep state, then ANM woke up and took over while I slinked off to sleep in Little C's bed. I woke up again when Little V needed a feed-to-sleep and went back into the big bed with him to doze for a while longer. In the end I got a sort of sleep in until about 9:30. Yay!

When I finally emerged the boys gave me a beautifully wrapped packed of lollies (NCC jellies - yum) and a lovely card that Mr T and Little C had made together.

The rest of the day was good. Mr T went off to run a gardening course with my Dad and I took the Littles for a walk to the shops to buy yummy cheese rolls for lunch. After lunch we headed off to a parkour basics class that I'd been wanting to take Little C to for ages. He was being shy so we mostly just sat back and watched the big boys doing their cool stuff and but I got some ideas for some fun parkourish things we can do at home. Here's a vid of the local traceurs in action.

Ah, if only I was young and fit... it looks like SO much fun.

We left the session early and headed to Donut King for (erm) doughnuts.

When we arrived home I whipped up some dinner... a quicklified version of Sister Suffragette's Venetian Bean Soup. I used dinosaur pasta and called it "dinosaur stew" in the hope that Little C might overlook his soup phobia, but alas, he did not... not tonight anyway. The rest of us loved it and it was guzzled heartily.

Now here I sit at my computer, thinking I really should go to bed, and I will do exactly that... very soon. 'Twas a lovely day. Thanks family!

Wow, you learn something new every day! I had never heard of parkour. How amazing are those kids?! They make it look so easy, like they are made of rubber or something!

And I LOVE the card you got - that's frameworthy! Glad you had a nice day.

Yeah, parkour is so awesome. C regularly watches parkour vids on youtube then invents little routines for around the house, leaping off furniture, etc. It's much fun!

Oh what a shame your lil feller didn't buy the dinosaur stew! Dino pasta though...that's pretty spesh!!!

Glad you liked it though! And, so glad to visit your chirpy, witty blog. It's my first time!!!

Oooh SS, I've made it again since then. Another huuuge batch a couple of days ago that was guzzled alarmingly quickly. It's SO yum! I'm sure Little C will come around eventually!!

Chirpy and witty, teehee. Stop, stop or my head will expand so much I'll need to buy a new hat.
