I had a lovely day yesterday when DH and I went over to visit DD and do jobs for her. Al put a new electric socket in her bedroom, fixed her lawn mower so that it doesn't electrocute her again and fixed a gate between the garden and the car port to keep DGS Sam in (or out, depending how you look at it).
I had the better part of the deal imho, I helped her make the final drape for her bedroom storage (no photo as I reckon a lady's bedroom is something that shouldn't be shown on the internet) and then we sorted out clothes for our holiday and she gave me two dresses that no longer fit her but do fit me, woo hoo!! A little gentle weeding and then Saz cooked us a delicious lunch including her very FIRST POTATOES. She is over the moon with her veggie garden and is having great success. We sat in her garden and saw the Thunderbirds fly over! (no, not the Tracy brothers, FAB, the US equivalent of our red Arrows display team, the Waddington Air Show is on this weekend)
Today I'm packing. It seems to be more difficult to pack for a week than when we got to NZ for months and months. We are going to Italy on Friday, staying in Sorrento and doing all the classics things - we've justified it as a study trip for Saz, yeah right! I love this Mummy/Daughter stuff. We're going to Pompeii and are very excited. Sam has been signing and saying "aeroplane" for weeks and putting clothes in his Very Hungry Caterpillar trolley. I hope to be blogging from there so you can share our trip. Right, back to the suitcase, now where did I put that suncream?
