Games, treats, rain and sun
Rachel had a St John meeting this evening but it worked out well that an old ballet friend's mum was able to pick her up after the meeting and she got to spend the night and Wednesday with them.
These two had a picnic with their teddies this morning. I love it when they come up with games that they both enjoy. They have so much fun together.
The plan was for Brendon to head out with Ruth this evening. Rachel needed to be picked up from her friend, so it was a good excuse to go out for a sweet treat. I have had a tiring time lately though with Asher home for 4 weeks (no preschool) and then two weeks of holidays with all the kids home, so Brendon suggested I rather go with her. I was very grateful to get the 2 hours out the house and enjoy some quiet. The weather hasn't been wonderful these holidays, so the inside volume has been one of the hardest things to cope with. So this was a wonderful break from it all.
Friday 21st: Asher had another 1 min TC this morning at 9:45am. Josie had thankfully not left home yet (she normally helps me with Asher on Friday mornings) and so I could tell her not to worry about coming out. Especially with all the rain we had today.
The rain arrived as expected and the ditches outside our home were full. I forgot to take photos, so I share one taken by our talented neighbour Val Simpson.
Other than some pooling in our garden, it wasn't really a problem (just a lot of rain). There was a lot of flooding in South Canterbury which caused a lot of damage. So we were grateful it wasn't too bad for us.
