Some highlights from the last few days:
- A Happy Meal.
- Me - "Alicia, is that a baby in your tummy?" Alicia - "No. I've got one really big booby."
- Birds flying over Kirkstall Abbey.
- Four little toothbrushes lined up in a row.
- Breakfast - poached eggs and spinach.
- A Lego "Olympic Torch"
- Cake - Millionaire's Shortbread.
My sister Katy left today and normal life resumes. These last few days have been tiring (SO tiring!) and busy and chaotic but also full of fun and laughter. I'll be honest - I am looking forward to an uninterrupted night's sleep tonight. I've not had much time to blog, or read other's blogs, or do any housework, or anything really. I will try to rectify this over the weekend. I spent a peaceful morning at home with the kids earlier, stripping beds, loading and unloading the washing machine, vacuuming, straightening the place up. Very satisfying.
Thank you for all your lovely comments about sisters. I am lucky to have mine even if they do live miles away. It was strange to spend time with Katy without our other sister, Anna, being there too. Anna, we missed you!
I will also try to resist tinkering around with photographic filters, like the ones I used in the above collage. Those things are fun and addictive but make me a lazy photographer, as you can rescue the most dull, blurred photo and make it look half way decent. I resolve not to use them (except on very special occasions maybe).
