Half term is upon us, we are lucky this time around as Mr T is on holidays from work but the week is slowly working itself towards the pinnacle of Matthew's birthday.
Monday resulted in a trip to the shops as we thought we ought to get him a few presents, Heather helped me to choose and then we had to get provisions for his party which takes place on Saturday.
Tuesday was more about crowd control as the day was grey and wet, miserable in fact. The children wanted to run around and have fun but the limited space offered by the house prevented this. As a result we did have a game of piggy in the middle in the hallway. Not something I am likely to repeat but then we did try.
Wednesday provided some relief as the weather was drier and after Mr T had given the grass a haircut it was dry enough for the kids to do their worse. Heather has trampolining which she loved. I then took the plunge, I had my eyebrows waxed for the very first time, this has followed quickly on my very first facial which I had on a spa day last week. The initial terror of someone coming towards my face, indeed my eyes with hot wax quickly abated. It resumed with the words 'Are you ready?' which I knew meant it was ripping off time. I have to admit although there was an ouch moment it went away rapidly and afterwards I have to say it was worth it!
Today I took Heather on a hack, a whole hour in the sunshine on horseback, it was peaceful and warm and a little slice of paradise, now for a peaceful hour or two while I get my haircut and prepare myself for the onslaught of birthday mania!
