With walks out in the scrub, climbing fences and exploring, looking for birds nests, climbing trees (well, i wasn't, as the fence climbing was a challenge enough for this granny!!) playing tennis - or hitting the ball and chasing it, going for drives around the farm in the ute and each having a turn at 'driving' ....this one Granny has had a full week and it is a sure way to get a good nights sleep!!LOL!!
And one day each of the big boys came into the kitchen "hey granny look what we got" and from my office i came out to find each with a chook in their arms. "take a photo Granny" Mr J said. How could i resist?? My poor chook...she won't lay an egg for a couple days now i bet!! But Mr J looked very pleased with himself!!
After all that activity the appetites are ravenous......bags of apples and frozen chocolate cake is quickly devoured in no time. Frozen chocolate cake is a fav here.....why frozen??...it has been a 'thing' in this house since our neighbour and good friend Annette started it when my kids were small and it has just continued on. Anyway....straight from the freezer....it is eaten before it gets a chance to defrost....and they all love it!!
So that is my first week of the school holidays.....they go home to their Mum now, and i go back to my normal quiet life....but i loved it, loved every damn minute of it!!
Hope you are all having great times during your school holidays,
