Little Wins This Week #6

Laughter, chaos and a house full of happy children. I wish I could bottle the joy that pervaded the house and treasure it for posterity. The least I can do is document these delightful days in words and cherish their memory for eternity.

It was a sedate start to February half term. The weekend was spent lounging around the house in what were well-deserved pyjama days. The action picked up on Monday when we went to Dove Stone Reservoir to ramble in the snow. It was our first time walking in inclement weather but the glorious winter sunshine more than made up for the near-zero temperature.

Tuesday brought a much-anticipated and long-awaited visit from friends, who are akin to family to us. J was ecstatic at the prospect of meeting the children and the ruckus that ensued bore testimony to the ridiculous amount of fun they had. There was lots of home-cooking, with M making his signature sour-dough pizzas and lamb biryani. The conversation flowed easily, as it always does when you are in fabulous company. Two and a half days passed all too quickly, and it was time for tearful goodbyes. J was inconsolable and not even Mummy-cuddles could ease his misery. A good night’s sleep however, did the trick.

We met up with other friends on Friday. J is best friends with their little boy, and the two played, fought and screamed together over the next couple of days. Not sure I want to bottle that sound for posterity!

I managed to squeeze in a gym session amidst all the craziness and chaos. We also had a go playing badminton mixed doubles, M and I versus our friends. We were soundly beaten! I must make an effort to work on my badminton skills before a rematch.

It is back to school and back to routines now. I hope this week and the weeks to come bring as much happiness as the one that has been.
