Fun in the Sun

I was feeling motivated today. I don't know why. Maybe because for the last couple of nights the terrible twosome have called a ceasefire on the all night dance parties they've become so fond of as of late and I actually got a semi decent's night sleep!

No matter the reason, I awoke feeling almost human and looked outside to see a blazing blue sky. I immediately became suspicious and marched to the window, glancing left and right for the giant black rain clouds I knew must be hiding somewhere.

Nothing. A few puffy white ones, but no hideous harbingers of stormy Irish gloom.

Still not convinced, I marched to the back of the house and stared out those windows. Again, I looked left and right. Again, I saw nothing but a few more puffy whites dotting the blue, blue sky.

Within minutes, I had a load of laundry on the the line and another on to wash, both girls were cleaned, fed, dressed, strapped into the buggy and we were halfway across town. No destination and no reason other then the fact that mother nature was obviously having a senior moment and we were getting the weather meant for a nicer, more attractive and infinitely more deserving country.

We had to take advantage before she realized her mistake.

We walked and walked and walked and the tiny one slept and slept and slept. The snot queen still had an hour or so of madness in her to burn off so it was off to monkey maze where she played and played and played until her eyes were dropping out of her head. By the time we left the parking lot she was down for the count. Success.

So charged with energy was I from the sun, the excercise and the fresh air, that upon our arrival home I scrubbed out the bathroom and the utility room and got a start on the kitchen and supper whilst the Snot Queen went out back to search for stones.

Even when the thunder rolled and the dark clouds eventually did move in, I didn't mind. We'd enjoyed the break in the weather while it lasted. Besides which, I'd managed to get the clothes in off the line before the rains came.

Hope you all had a lovely day as well:)

  1. I love walking for the sake of walking in the sunshine :)
    When the weather's so flippin' unpredictable, you have to make the most of it whenever you can!
    ...hasn't quite inspired me to clean the bathroom yet though - now I feel guilty ;)
