“After all,” Anne had said to Marilla once, “I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea
Was an inset day on Friday so I had both my boys home. We went out for breakfast for a treat and supposedly to pick up my medicine but something had gone wrong in the chain somewhere so negotiated a prescription for that afternoon and an appointment for next week.
At home Sam did his Maths and English. Then I left the boys to play together, split screen Minecraft obviously, and got on with some work. I’d offered day out or chance to catch up with friends but Jack wanted a day at home, can’t say I blame him he’s feeling the pace of Gang Show rehearsals. Nice seeing the boys just relaxing and enjoying each others company.
Of course by the time my prescription was ready to be collected it was a wee bit breezy and damp!
Jack should have gone to Scouts but the weather combined with tiredness made us decide that a night on the sofa was in order. We may have been influenced by the arrival of Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters in that days post 😉 Pete was on a works night out too so prime opportunity for some Mum/sons bonding.
Saturday was homework, work, Rugby, reading, Lego (Sam has rediscovered his taste for it and is building Camp Half Blood). A relaxed (well if you ignore the very ropey Welsh performance but a win is a win!) yet productive day.
Sunday and boys took themselves off to the park for an hour early on as there was a rare glimpse of sun. Jack had 5hrs of rehearsals scheduled for the afternoon so wanting a chance of Xbox time they all mucked in and by 10.30 downstairs was clean and tidy and Tesco’s had been and shopping had been put away.
Rest of the day passed in work, ironing, reading, games, baking.
