*Big Cheesy Grin*
Look what we have :~) (She says, nicking a picture naughtily off its ebay listing :~))
Its very nice indeed. We picked it up and decided to tootle around town in in for a bit, so picked up dinner and headed off to the local “place to walk people” so we could sit in our new car, swivel the seats round and have a comedy family picnic!!!! I love it; i’ve only driven it on the park campus (because i hate driving Max!) but i felt instantly very comfortable in it, which is great. I’ve got so much more visibility in it than i ever had in the Vectra, that that makes up for the extra few inches really. Girls think its fab, Fran and Maddy are delighted to have the very back seats and highly amused by going round corners in it (rolls a bit!) So – now we can bring on the baby!!!!!
The rest of the day was good too – started off with snowbabies and Zoe took Ammi on, so for the first time she wore real skates and loved it. She was wearing the top Fran used to wear when she first went (okay, yes, i nearly cried!!!) and had a great time. Its nice to be back in to skating now and great to see Ammi enjoying it.
They were all pretty pooped when we got back so they had a dvd and then Fran and Maddy spent time on a couple of computer games (Jump Ahead Year 2 for Fran and Jump Ahead Starting School for Maddy) – Fran loved hers and needed no help really. She was happily away with fractions and sequences and so on while Maddy worked really hard on hers too. She surprised me (just slightly!) by being able to do all the letter ones and the alphabetical order ones, so i think i’ll just shut up and leave her to it shall i!!!!!!????!!!!
Got some admin done, booked Melrose, tidied up a bit; Ammi loves Zoe and got some lovely one to one attention from her which i think is going to be the major benefit of this arrangement. I’ve not really given enough thought to the fact that she is about to stop being the youngest, but Max has a lot of time off over the next few months now because he has saved all his holiday really, plus he gets paternity leave so between him and Zoe and any visiting friends, i hope she’ll be okay. I’ve not got fears for the other two really, they are big, comprehending girls and i know they know they are loved and vital to our family and how it works,. But Ammi is in for a shock i would guess.
Finished off with a start on our new book Mr Meddles Mischief – i remember the first story from when i was little!!!!
