Homesick Weekend - so kept busy

Dot & Harry left on Friday. It was very sad at the airport, as it always is when saying goodbye to family & friends from England. We all cried and then to make it worse, all the way back to the car Jack kept turning around looking for them and even said "nan" a couple of times. Friday night we all felt sad and very homesick. It never gets any better.

Saturday we called Dot & Harry to make sure they got home okay, which they did, so we decided to keep busy and try to enjoy the weekend. We got our Jack's pool out that Eric & Dave got him for his birthday. He loves it and played for a while in the garden. Char came over at night and Craig cooked us a lovely Indian meal - poppadoms & mango chutney for the appetiser then chicken tikka masala on dirty rice - lovely!


Today we went to Columbus Zoo. It was stinking hot so we kept inside as much as possible. Jack loved the elephants and the aquariums. He stood for ages looking at the fish. Craig wondered if we should set up an aquarium again but 2 cats, a dog and a toddler is quite enough to cope with right now! I enjoyed seeing "Fluffy" - the 24 foot python and the tigers. Craig loves all the aquarium stuff and the manatees. When the heat got too much we came home.


So it's back to work & reality tomorrow. No more English visitors this year but my mum and Auntie Edna are planning a trip next year sometime. I just wish we didn't live so far away.

Oh, I almost forgot - Jack had his 12 month Doc visit last week. Had 3 injections (ouch) but was a little rockstar and hardly cried. Here's his statistics:

  • Weight: 23 lbs 6 oz (55th percentile)
  • Height: 31 inches (85th percentile)

So the trend continues to be "tall & slim". Oh I wish I could say the same about me....

He's the Reason We Can't Have Nice Things

I say this line a lot to Craig - When the cats barf on the bed "We can never have nice things" When Ben poos on the basement car...
