Friday 1 June 2012: A little slice of...
826/365: ... pure naughty.
About a millisecond later, she'd yanked his trousers down as she screeched with laughter and left him floundering at the top of the slide. Pure brother and sister action. Quality.
Actually, as we walked to the play park and I was behind them (wheezing!), they were lost in their own little world of chatting and happiness and I was struck by how lovely their friendship is. Something to treasure now and again! Yes they grump. Yes they whinge. But they love each other to bits in that unaware, take-them-for-granted way where neither can imagine life without the other one.
Oh, and if you want the laryngitis / bronchitis update... (whaddya mean you don't?!?!?) well... I've been home again today. Did a bit of work... felt awful... have got much more voice back but the chest infection bit of it is taking a while to shift. *sigh*
In order to occupy the children, they watched a DVD this morning. 'The Velveteen Rabbit'. Pure sentimental tosh. But which, by the end - and because I'm a wet blanket - had me snuffling back the tears. Just at the point that Felix asked me why the rabbit had become real and... well... I gulped a vague reply and provoked a coughing fit which disguised my patheticness nicely!
Before I tootle to bed, there's one thing I've learned today - from Felix. It's about vegetarians. He asked me the other day how you could tell that babies were vegetarian (we're veggies). He was saying that you could tell boy babies from girl babies... but how could you tell vegetarians from meat eaters. At dinner this evening he had his light bulb moment. Apparently, when babies are tiny, the doctor does a simple test. They hold a lump of meat on a fork in front of their faces and if the baby says 'yuck', they're vegetarian.
I hope you've all learned something too.
PS Four day weekend starts here
PPS I plan on sleeping for as much of it as possible!
