It seems past time for an update. I do have a post planned which discusses how things have changed in the last year. The holiday season was a great time for me and Guy 0 to get to know each other better. In contrast I have barely heard from Accountant guy so I am thinking it might be time to consider where things can go.
Those posts both seem very serious for the time of year. The holidays have been hectic but fun and I’m not in the mood for a serious post. There was the usual buying and wrapping of presents to be done. Followed by sorting out food and the house. The visitors came to us each year but everyone contributes some food. In some ways it is crazy. Very hot here but we still follow European traditions with roast meat, vegetables and gravy. This year there was gammon, chicken, salt beef and lamb.
The day after everyone always collapses and does as little as possible. But yet this year I found myself building a marble run then trying to build a volcano. There was a user error and the plaster set before we could get it in the mould. Gotta try again soon. This was followed by a day making a lava lamp and underwater volcano. There were a few occasions where I managed to get a bit of time for myself but it was soon disturbed by screaming kids. So on day 3 I went shopping to avoid more madness.
Friday was a special fun day. The family went to a water park and then the beach. I was kept very busy going down with slides with kids (obviously just to keep them happy). Then a good time jumping in the waves and trying to keep up with the kid. I got home tired, burnt and happy.
Finally found time to sit and write something and now the cat is causing trouble.
I think I will just go sit in the garden and enjoy a gin and tonic.
