Bank Holiday Blues…………….

Bank Holidays are not my favourite sort of days at all – don’t get me wrong it’s nice to have a lie in, instead of running around like a mad woman getting jobs done before heading out the door. But unless we have a definate plan – like somewhere to go or a rugby game to watch, we don’t actually do anything – not as a family, anyway. Hubby’s idea of ‘Bank Holiday Bliss’ is lounging about reading the paper’s and watching T.V, me, I can’t think of anything worse – well they say opposites attract!!!

To make matters worse, we had heeded the weather man’s warning about the non-stop rain, and left all the mundane tasks – homework, ironing, hoovering –  for today. We awoke to glorious sunshine – brill! So barring a quick dash to B&Q for some supplies to help Jack with his art homework – don’t ask……………..Van Gogh’s got a lot to answer for! We put the mundane tasks back a few hours – hubby settled on the sofa with his papers and Jack and I headed out to play- kicking practise at the rugby club – not easy when wearing Primarni Ugg boots, maybe it’s time to invest in some rugby boots!  Amazing that the minute we stepped out of the car the wind got up and the rain started……………Good job I’m an allweather type of girl. ‘

Playtime over, time to get the mundane jobs done – well we conquered the ironing mountain, the rest will have to wait – come on I had to fit a sneaky run in at some point, I haven’t had one for at least two days. It was a pretty good sprint actually – despite the best efforts of a piece of blossom to kill me – at least you can swallow a fly or if your lucky gob it back out, the blossom was going nowhere. Took nearly half a bottle of Lucozade Sport to shift the flaming stuff – gargling while heavy breathing is not an easy task!!!!!
