We're back and all of us have skin tones the colour of golden brown cookies or light golden syrup. At one point though, one of us threatened to turn lobster red because he didn't do the prep work (ie pre tanning) in the backyard before leaving like she did.
I've just crawled my way out of a mountain load of holiday washing and cleaning ( the spiders had a holiday at our house too while we were gone) AND hosting a small barbecue yesterday so I'm completely whacked.
Today the in-laws have rounded up all five grandkids, with the exception of one toddler, for an outing at an indoor playground followed by dinner at their house. I want to kowtow them but since they've raised four boys, this afternoon is tiddlywinks to them. I would rather take my chances with a tricky soufflé, thank you very much. Anyway, it couldn't have come at a more opportune time because that means a whole day to myself to recharge - bliss!
So here's the POA (Plan Of Action)of the afternoon: Put a pot of tea on, take out my stitching and settle in front of the telly and play catch up on all my taped episodes of TV shows.
Will write more when I've gathered the rest of my grey cells and found my funny bone.
In a while, crocodile!
