English people will think that's ok. American people will shake their heads in wonder and tell you they never do that. I don't care. Actually I'm caring less and less about "rules" these days - gotta love your 40's!
So I'm off all week, with my boys. Went to the pool with my friend Lyn and her grandkids. We were there for 4 hours.
We played a lot: "What time is it Mr. Wolf", tag, races, and Jaws.
Unfortunately, I told a few teenagers off for being awful ( I do not want to be a helicopter mum but Jesus - some kids are dicks!) I had to talk to a mum at one point. I tried really hard to hang back and let my kids deal with stuff, but a 9 yr old (Jack) versus a 16 year old trying to steal his money crosses a line. He denied it at first but his friends ratted on him, right in front of me and his mum. She was mortified (as I would have been) and said to me "I'm sorry, he's leaving ". I saw him 15 minutes later. SIGH.
My kids loved it and I played with them for a solid two hours! :)
They ate candy floss and ring pops
Me and Lyn had a good old natter while we floated. I Loved that.
Overall a great day. 4 hours at the pool = success
|Love this kid. His sense of humour is really great|
|Daniel: Fearless. Also hides and runs. He'd be the kid in the Gorilla enclosure|
|Me old mucka, Lyn|
