This morning I had a lovely lie-in til 10am! When I got up and saw Alice she asked me if I wanted to come with her to take Elsie to a play area for the morning. I had 15 minutes to get showered and dressed! And so the day began.
Circus Arts is an activity centre which has classes for learning the trapeze. It also has a soft play area for younger children and a cafe. Elsie and Alice played in the soft play area while I had my breakfast – toast and a cup of tea!
I did take my knitting but didn’t manage any as I was watching the trapeze class. It was amazing to watch how quickly people moved on and by the time we left they were swinging upside down and being grabbed and swung by one of the instructors. I was very impressed.
During the afternoon I did some admin and finally reduced my inbox to one page!
Once Alice and Elsie were up we decided to go for a walk with Elsie’s trike inbetween the showers! We walked up to a cafe where we were planning to have a drink and a snack. There were loads of lovely baked goods on display ….
Fortunately, they had organic and gluten free choices, unfortunately they all had nuts in or they couldn’t guarantee they were nut free! We settled on a milk shake and a cup of tea (with cows milk). Then it started raining so we drank them on a table under a tree. Then it stopped raining so Elsie got to play in the park a bit before she got back on her trike and we headed back.
On our way home we stopped at the swings but before long it was tipping it down again. We dashed under a tree and then the tree started to drip. It didn’t take long before the rain had eased to a drizzle and we made our way back to the house – we were quite wet!
Supper was pizza delivered locally. At Elsie’s bedtime I came downstairs to my room just in time for a text conversation with Castell – we have decided to go and see a famous Australian comedian called Wil Anderson, at Sydney Opera House, for his birthday. We are both looking forward to see each other at Easter. I then got a FaceTime call from my friend Liz. She was just getting up and I was just going to bed! It was great to see her to chat and catch up with each other. I also explained my problem of not getting text messages on my phone and we agreed that whatsapp is the way to go, or Facebook messenger or email.
