It hasn’t been the most active week this week, I started it off with enjoying being an unemployed bum and then not much happens at all. Then I had one active day on the Wednesday before hitting the doctors, and then the pharmacy for my penicillin on the Thursday…thus not much action.
I really want to stick with doing one new thing each week, and as I was sitting here on the couch on a Sunday night I realized that I hadn’t managed one this week. Until my mother corrected me that is!
My sister with husband spent a large part of the weekend at a spa, which meant that their children spent the same time with their grandmother, and then when I arrived in Gotham yesterday; with me. They spent the night and managed to not really wake me up too early this morning, even though I wasn’t allowed to sleep half the day away.
At 11am today there was the normal Sunday service at the church, where they today were to read out my dads name as passed away, and light a candle. My mother wanted to go, and I guess she wasn’t to keen on bringing the grand-kids along (and to be honest, I wasn’t too interested either) so she plainly decided to leave the girls with me and go.
This is where the new thing comes in, I have spent an evening with the oldest one before, in my own home. I have been babysitting both of them together with mother dearest. I have never spent time with the two girls, just me, by myself before.
I know it’s a small new thing, and it wasn’t that long, we did it though! No one was crying, no one got hurt and when mum and dad showed up no one wanted to go home (even if I think that was more about waiting for grandmother to come back rather than hanging out with boring auntie).
I guess I was a bit distracted by the little two, since I don’t have a single picture to show for it. None of the ice-cream eating, none of the climbing over and through furniture’s, none of the drawing of pictures, none of the putting puzzles together or none of quietly and very nicely sitting on the couch watching telly. Might be another new! Instead I will leave you with the half good picture of the kiss that my oldest niece gave me on Saturday night!
