A gorgeous day for learning to ride his bike

2011-08-14 18.32.20

What a difference a day maaaaaaakkeess!!!! Isn’t it gorgeous outside just now?? Makes such a difference when the sun is shining and the heavy rain and hail disappears. We’ve also had really strong winds this week. There were two nights I woke up because of the noise of the stormy weather outside…not good. Anyway, today feels more like spring, which is why me and hubby prised the kids away from the telly and made them go on a long walk down the side of the River Clyde. There were a few grumbles, but they had sticks and they used said sticks to write cheeky messages in the sand at the beach near where we live, dig up shells and generally wave them around. The boy also used his to ‘shoot’ his sister a few times, but she had her ‘invisible force-field’ up so the shots were deflected. (looks bemused!) Of course, neither of us remembered to bring our phones or a camera to take shots of the said events, but not to worry!! It was a good walk, blew the old cobwebs away and we returned home in time for lunch, all hungry and rosey-cheeked.

So what’s been happening in your world this week? I’ve been quite busy since my last post. Although I’ve been off, I’ve been knitting, watching copious amounts of telly (watched all of Whitechapel…my God the first series was good! Second series not so good, but there was no way they could have topped the first series! Also, started getting into Fringe, but am reserving judgement for that!), cooking and baking, cleaning the house, looking after the kids and generally being a mum. I decided that I wasn’t using the week off to work on writing as I felt I really needed a break, so opted for the ‘see what I felt like’ view of the world. I felt like knitting and watching telly so that’s what I did. How lazy!!

Yesterday we had a couple of friends come round for lunch. Well, we went to our local hostelry and had lunch. Was nice to see both of them. Haven’t seen either for ages, so it was good to catch up.

Today, apart from the walk, I’ve been listening to music, watching yet more of Lie to Me (still addicted) and catching up on Facebook (also addictive!). I thought that I’d better do another blog so that I’ve written at least something this week. As I write, my boy is learning to ride his bike. Hubby tried last year, but the boy wasn’t having any of it. I hope he learns to do it this time round. Before he went out – the boy that is – he put in an order for tea and biscuits for him and his dad. This is something the two of them do a lot. If hubby is out in the garage doing some work on something, the boy likes to go out to his ‘workshop’ (ie the back of the garage) and do some ‘man work’ too. Always, always, before he goes out he says: ‘Mum can you make me and dad some tea and biscuits?’ and cos it’s cute of course I comply!! He’s such a wee character my boy. In case you’re wondering, the girl (also a character) is out playing with her friend.

Anyway, enough of domesticity, am away to read some blogs and maybe maybe do some writing!! Better make the tea and biscuits first though!!
