Friday 22 June 2012: Too wet to go out. And too cold to play ball.
So we sat in the house.
We did nothing at all.
So all we could do was to
Sit! Sit! Sit! Sit!
And we did not like it.
Not one little bit.
Dr Seuss, The Cat in the Hat
Okay, the bit about doing nothing at all isn't exactly true, but every time we've attempted to go out today the sky has opened up again. Luckily we had our regular Friday play date here (for a change -- I haven't had the girls/kids over in a while as I've been trying to get more organised and I decided to just give up!).
A was soooooo excited to have his pals over. Until they got here and started playing with his toys. He's not normally possessive and is really good at sharing, but he seemed a bit overwhelmed by it. Clearly I need to have our pals over more often so that he gets used to it again. They all had a good time, I think, and the moms had a bit of a catch-up. I think. It's all a bit of a blur to be honest.
So here we are at 3:22pm -- A happily playing with his cars and trains and M in the jumperoo. We never, ever just stay in. Perhaps we'll make it to the Piece Box for a babycinno in a bit. Perhaps not. Wish me luck, whatever the case.
postscript: We did make it out, and went to this very random street close by but one we'd never been on before on our side of the canal, and who appeared there but Dada! He had just read something about an old church on it and was down there to photograph it. Spooky!
