We’ve had a very social weekend. Best friend from high school days came with her three kids Saturday morning til after lunch. Then sister in law and two nephews, and a family my mum has "adopted" (newly emigrated from South Africa and completely lovely and fun) came mid afternoon until night. Miss 3 was in her element, first girls to play with then cousin to run riot with, then a teenager to read her stories in the evening! Master 6 also had a ball, taking the Sth African kids fishing at the dam and they had a huge haul of "bobbies". Much fun.
Today we had unexpected visitors for a while about 8.30am (none of us even out of PJs! – luckily good family friends), then we went to Drillham to BFFHS’s family for a few hours. Then to town to see another friends and kids who were just visiting their parents for the weekend and spent a couple of hours. After that it was pool time again – my kids are just having a ball at the pool, and we manage to time it well to meet with MORE friends and kids! Two and a half hours this arvo… Home again to same friends as we’d visited this afternoon, just the matriarch and patriarch of the family though 🙂
Tomorrow Poppop takes the boy back to Poona for more fishing, while the girls stay home – shopping trip to the "big smoke" tomorrow, then more socialising planned for the week.
But I’m not getting NEARLY enough reading done! I did finish a Kathy Reichs and the Elizabeth Knox monster I was reading (both in the one night – got hooked) and I started a lightweight Nora Roberts last night…
