But not necessarily in a good way.
Hardly any photos recently, I'll try harder this week. I found the Polling Station one on my little camera, from the school run on Thursday. So that was a dramatic day or two, no?
The weekend here was dominated by a football tournament. Starting with helping out at 8am on Saturday. The biggest boy played all Saturday morning. I spent three hours at lunchtime helping in the barbecue tent, and managed to miss most of his matches and most of the middle boy's matches in the afternoon as well.
The washing machine died in spectacular fashion. Then the middle boy was sick on Saturday night. I spent today hand washing things, while the other half took the littlest boy back to the tournament for his matches. The biggest boy was charged with taking photos of any goals or monumental moments. He got quite a few decent shots, but the lens wandered skywards a little as well and I found a few bird pictures sprinkled in the mix. And one with just a knee.
The matches were five minutes each way, with a vast amount of hanging around in between. The teams weren't very well put together and no-one really enjoyed it very much. Quite a few of the parents who were supposed to help out just didn't bother turning up. I'm tempted to say never again.
Anyway, I'm happy to put those two days behind me. Next time I think we'd all be happier giving it a miss and going for a walk in the depths of the countryside. Sometimes it's just nice to be together relaxing, rather than doing scheduled things. We barely ate a meal all together. It's good to get to the end of a weekend with a warm glow of good things to carry into the new week. I'm hoping you had the warm glowy kind of weekend, rather than the teeth grinding kind. But whichever it was I'm wishing you a good week.
