Variations on Ordinary (ish)

A strange week, all in all, same daily routines and same us, but in other ways a total break with reality.  We got up in the middle of the night to see the Perseid meteor shower.  It was fairly cloudy, but we still saw a few, and it certainly was an adventure.

Rowan spent a day baking cakes with my mum.  Jenna had a sleepover with her a couple of days later.

We went to the Robin Hood festival and watched puppet shows and jesters and jousting and archery.  It rained very hard, and we got soaked to the skin.

And I had one *horrendous* day where it felt like they were trying to break me.  (Everything from Morgan knocking the bathroom cabinet over and then threatening to spray bleach on her sister, to Rowan finding the camping mallet and making a hole in the bedroom wall with it, to Rowan hitting my favourite tea mug with a big stone, to Morgan hitting Rowan in the face with a wooden telephone, to Talia throwing herself at me and covering us both with - mercifully cold - tea...)

Well...  At least it has been a week of adventures!

  2. Sounds like a proper mixed bag there Sarah. Good for you for having the motivation to go out at night to watch the meteor shower, I doubt I would have made it lol. The photo of the girls in their housecoats is SO cute.

    1. The most ridiculously up and down week ever. I think the highs made up for the lows, but I'm trying not to let the stress get to me. :S
