MY WORD OF THE WEEK – Exciting
This week has been rather exciting! I chose this image because it’s colourful, and it includes umbrellas, which may well be included in my exciting week.
We started the week off with The Little Man’s birthday, he has turned 10, so now I have no children in single figures anymore. No babies. He had a fantastic day playing with all his new toys and his excitement was caught by everyone.
On Monday, The Little Man wanted a friend around to play and I had a friend who wanted to visit too. Now, to be safe we decided to stay in the garden. The Little Man was super excited all day, and I was excited to see my friend who I last saw in February when we went to the ballet together.
Of course it was too hot so we ended up in the house for the last hour of the visit.
On Tuesday we were really excited to have our visit to the farm. We had a session booked so that we would be the only ones there for a couple of hours. It was really exciting to be able to go out and know that we were going to be completely safe and not have to worry about social distancing.
I was worried the weather wouldn’t hold, but it was another lovely hot day. We had a picnic and fed the animals. The kids played in the play area which was really lovely, and we had a walk around the allotment. But it was too hot and in the end we were glad to get back to the air conditioning of the car.
In the evening we had thunder and lightening. I get excited about storms and I thought this would help clear the air and make it a cooler night. But the rain lasted all of two minutes and it was even hotter and stuffier afterwards.
The Real Deal
As we got hotter and hotter throughout the week, we decided to get the pool out on Wednesday. Everyone had a turn at cooling off in the pool. The girls didn’t get in but they did dip their toes in while sitting on the garden chairs. The kids had lots of fun and it was another exciting day.
The biggest excitement came in the evening though. We had a massive storm, thunder, lightning and lots of rain, cold refreshing rain. So much rain we even had some make its way through our patio doors, but there was no way were were going to close them. It still felt really hot though, another hot and sticky night.
Thankfully Thursday was much cooler, I don’t think I’ve ever been so pleased to see the sun have a break. I hope it’s not for good, it would be nice to have a few more hot days before the kids go back to school in September.
I’m not sure if I feel excited about the return to school. One day at a time.
Now it’s your turn, what word or phrase sums up your week this week?
