a few warm days
finally we seem to be being blessed with a few warm, sunny days. I am so pleased, not least because it means I can wash all my clothes and have them back in cases for this weekends camping trip.
We have had a nice day today, not on the beach (I am using photos from earlier in the month, and longing for a new camera, the 2mp cameraphone is no longer exciting me!) but relaxing in the garden. The children turned the playhouse into a shop/cafe, they have been gradually heading towards it for a few weeks, but today we made silver coins for shopping, and raided the kitchen cupboards for any empty or nearly empty packaging as items in the shop, along with some old plastic playfood. I am being mean and not letting them take the wooden playfood into the garden, as I know it will get lost or trashed and I like it too much! They didnt seem to mind though, and real packaging is better anyhow. They played for ages, opening and shutting the shop, and serving each other various weird and wonderful meals 'would you like some face cream with your soup?' And I was able to sit and enjoy the sun for a bit. mmmm
