Hope was coming to the end of her morning nap when I found a guest in the study. I ran to the kitchen and grabbed a large colander and trapped our slippery visitor, just for a few minutes... for educational purposes. After quickly looking up the baby sign for 'frog' on 'you-tube', I brought Hope down to meet a new friend. "Mummy found a frog" I said, while enthusiastically wiggling my fingers under my chin. I lifted the colander to reveal this exciting creature. Hope smiled amd even giggled approvingly... until the critter jumped.
Then I had to take some blog photos jolly quick before blowing into Hope's face to prevent her from passing out.
Yes, the weather has stayed nice 'n hot. Yes we did leave the World Cup in embarrassing disgrace. Yes, I can still smile and say 'hello' to the German mums at the kids school, even though one of them overtook me with her pushchair the other day. Yes, I get it. We are too slow!!!
Terrible fans that we are, we gave up at half time and went down the garden to play in the pool. Time much better spent in my opinion.
Hubby decided, on account of the weather, that it would be a good time to take some annual leave. Plans were put in place to do things... ie: take down the wonky shed, build a tree house and take some 'Mummy and Daddy time' to go and have a lunch somewhere quiet together, before the big kids break up for the summer hols.
Well. The wonky shed is still there and there is still no tree house in the 'Lost Garden of Hooligans', but we did make it to this lovely pub 'The Albion' on the creek front for some nachos.
