Seriously, rain during school holidays sucks. Big time. We’re all going a little stir crazy with cabin fever over here. And thus begins another Friday Favourites post.
This would usually be part of a linky but the Friday Favourites linky hosts have been a little preoccupied with a few other things for the last couple of weeks. So I’m going ahead with it on my own since I like the weekly feature. Friday Favourites is where I share my favourite or not so favourite things for the week.
Rain Sucks – A Not So Favourite
It’s the end of the first week of the winter school holidays. But we can’t really claim to have done anything interesting. Why? Because it’s pretty much rained the whole time. Which means I’ve had four kids cooped up in the house doing nothing but watch television and fight with each other. Everyone has cabin fever. I had planned on taking them to the park a couple of times but it’s rained. As much as I would like to take them somewhere fun and interesting, we’re saving all our spare money for a mini family holiday next weekend.
Dinner Out – Favourite
Eugene & I had a pleasant hour or two to ourselves during the week. We had a nice dinner after work. The food itself was bland and flavourless. Eugene is a much better cook and I’m pretty sure I could have done a better job of it myself. But the time to ourselves as a couple and not just as parents was definitely worth the price of bland food.
Clean Rooms – Favourite
Definitely a favourite. My kids cleaning their bedrooms without me asking or nagging or threatening them. What’s more? Their rooms are still clean!
Isabella’s Hospital Adventure – Not A Favourite
I’m pretty sure I’ve got a million more gray hairs after Monday’s events. I’m not going to rehash it though, except to say that Isabella’s finger seems to be healing quite nicely since then.
You Can Join In
I may not be the official host of the Friday Favourites linky. But I’d still love for you to join in. Just write a post about your favourite events or stuff that you used this week. Seriously, it can be about anything, even your favourite outfit or flower. A favourite song or saying. Whatever. Then just post the link in the comment section below. I can’t wait to read them!
