Hello friends and welcome to coffee. I’m actually having my protein shake breakfast today cause the kiddos, grandma and I are off to the beach for the day. Jealous much?
(Ok, I admit it, I watched Cougar Town last night, just in case you got that reference.)
Grandma has an apartment at the seaside not too far from where we live that needs renovating and the husband has been hinting that he wants to be able to go there in September. As his every wish is now my (our) command, and Italian builders are notoriously slow and relaxed when it comes to getting the job done we’ve decided to hop to it. I, of course, am envisioning a wonderful winter of seaside weekend breaks when the snow gets too much to handle. And who says we’re not lucky, right!
So, if we were really having coffee today, we would probably spend a good amount of time staring at the Ikea catalogue and fantasizing about how we’d furnish the apartment.
When that got boring we would probably talk about our kids, cause, I honestly need some levity in my life plus what else do we ever talk about anyway, right? And I would tell you that yesterday I went in to cover them at naptime (I can only do this once they are asleep) and I spent a fair few minutes watching them sleep. Isn’t it the absolutely most peaceful sight in the whole entire universe? The boy sleeps all rolled up like an inverted comma and the girl sleeps on her front, knees tucked under her chest, bottom up. Seriously, my kids are the cutest kids ever. No, really, MINE are!
Ok, short coffee today, as I have to go pack the car. I’m bringing three bags; we’re going for a little over half a day. I seriously can’t wait for the days when I will be able to go further than a few miles from my house without having to pack for four hours simply to survive.
