Well the weekend was gorgeous. Beautiful weather meant we spent most of the time outside. Have a look at what we got up to!
We had some rugs that needed cleaning so we hired a steam cleaner and spread them out in the back yard to dry. Once they were (almost) dry the girls took the opportunity to enjoy playing on carpet outside.
Hannah got her face painted at a fete for the local nursing home. This is a big achievement, because Hannah has never liked having strangers come near enough to her to get her face painted. I was so proud that she actually wanted to do it.
The Country Boy painted our front entrance with Toby’s enthusiastic “assistance”.
We got a new (secondhand) couch and got rid of an old one. We put the old one out the back and the kids enjoyed playing on it for an hour.
Hannah has been studying animals at school. She and Meg “caught” a snail and put it in a container. It’s name is Kelly. I’ve never really felt sorry for a snail before, but the phrase “killing with kindness” certainly comes to mind.
I began packing boxes – again with Toby’s “assistance”. He can unpack almost as quickly as I can pack. We are hoping to take alot of bits and pieces down to the farm these school holidays, so I am trying to work out what we need to pack now. I also managed to stuff my back up – which doesn’t bode well for the rest of the move!
Despite this, the weather was beautiful, the kids loved spending time outside, and we had a relaxing weekend.
What did you get up to this weekend?
