I am single mumming it this week while Richard is away.
I was driving home from work tonight and thought I just could not face cooking dinner, so when I got home I floated the idea of eating out. Two out of three boys voted yes, so majority rules, and we decided to go out for Chinese.
It started with a trip to the bottle shop – for me, not the boys! Whilst in the queue Arch, who is my ever-loving boy, decided to tell me he loved me. He is divine and I think it melted the heart of everyone in the queue. He was a bit embarrassed with the comments.
Then off to Chinese. And how lucky are we to run into friends who were also having a family dinner at the local Chinese (*waving* hi Derek and Kara).
After dinner we stop in at the local IGA for dog food and treats for us. I’m saving mine to eat in bed while reading a book. I am such a party girl.
Boys came home, gobbled their treats and are now on a sugar high.
An hour past their bed time and they are still up, enthralled, watching ‘Redesign your brain’…at least it is educational…
I loved my boys company tonight. They are funny, smart, adoring, adorable, and annoying – all in one.
A big night out with Mum…
Thankful Thursday at its best…
