Ah, Monday: a holiday day here, everyone home, working at the kitchen table, or tidying a bedroom, or peeling potatoes for the roast dinner we had intended to eat yesterday, though changed our minds after, ahem, too much snacking. That would be down to the Easter treats we brought home from Little E's on Saturday.
|My mail this week: paper and pictures all on the one day|
It was a very satisfying trip, in all kind of ways. First, we stopped off at a beach I've never in my life been to before. Haven't we all got a place like that? Somewhere not so far from home, you could get there if you tried but you haven't, and you grow up hearing everyone else talking about how amazing it is? We went. It turns out to be the kind of beach Jim Rockford might have wanted to move to, or Pamela Anderson, if only they had packed their waterproofs and their thermals, because of course we aren't actually talking about California.
Then on to Little E. As is tradition now, he had an Easter basket waiting for me. Hurray! Last year's was wrapped in tiny lights. How could he top that? With twinkling carrots! And more chocolate carrots inside and -
There's been some debate here, his mother said, about the Easteriness of carrots..
but I wasn't listening. I was admiring. Little E hadn't been with me in the shops the day I had spotted the clip on bunny tails and regretfully decided to pass. But he had guessed and so my basket contained my very own bobtail. I clipped it onto my behind, on the back of my skirt. I felt so bunny I almost hopped.
I'm glad you're feeling energetic my sister said. He has his birthday scooter charged up and ready to go..
And Little E took me by the hand and led me outside. It was a go kart-y scooter - a "razor" I think he called it -just the right size for a small aunt to try. I did a few laps. This is so going on Facebook! I heard someone shout as I flashed past. But I don't really do Facebook, so I don't really care. All I know is I want a razor for my birthday. Then it was Little E's turn.
Here's the flag! he said. I'll drive. You run behind me waving it.
Which is what we did. And that burst of exercise could go some way towards explaining why the rest of my weekend has also been - running behind. I have a story for you - or maybe that's a tale? -

but the paper and pictures which made up my best post this week really do need combining. Next time I hope I'll have some craftiness to share. How about you? I hope you had some fun this weekend. We'd love to hear about it! Anything new, any mail you enjoyed, we'll read it all..
Have a good week!
