Gil falls into me, heavy and relaxed, needing a cuddle. I think he is going to talk about Nellie. Then I feel it.
Mummy: Gil, are you licking me?
Gil: And chewing your hair.
Mummy: Why? I really don’t like it. It isn’t nice!
Gil: I’m a leopard eyed scorpion and this is how they show their love.
He’s undissuadeable…40 minutes later, following concerted licking all over my neck and arms.
Gil: licking gets a bit boring after a few minutes.
And he stops, showers, goes to bed calm and sleeps soundly.
Evan: Just play games with you Mummy.
That was AWESOME, proclaimed one very red and sweaty Gil in the midst of his friends – the caving event had gone down a treat. The snow was falling as we left the venue, spinning the magic onwards as we headed for food. They enjoyed grown-up dining at the pizza-pasta restaurant, seated in a booth and ordering their own beverages/meals. Another blink, another year. What a lovely boy…
Just too tired for today. Canned work, canned swimming, canned Cubs and watched Snow Chick with the boys instead. Something to be said for slowing down.
Two hours on the slopes skiing this morning, and Glee Club in the evening. Lovely, although I’m nursing a bruised left thumb joint.
I really loved that bath yesterday Mummy.
Slow start, then Rushmere County Park followed by lunch at The Globe. Once home, lit the fire, played Connect Four with Evan, family Dobble on the rug, bath with the boys, books at bedtime with Evan, and Anomalisa with Adam to finish.
