At last a day we could at least make something of and get out a little and enjoy the afternoon sunshine. It has been long over due since Lucy arrived home to stay for a while. It must be the wettest summer I can remember.
The morning started slowly and quietly with every one getting up when they wanted. There wasn't any urgency to do things as given the weather and nothing was really planed, other than getting out when we could. So as people woke up and after breakfasts they watched television, played and generally relaxed until lunchtime.
In the afternoon we got out and about, partly to get some shopping done, but mainly as far I was concerned and Lucy too, to get out to the park and in to the fresh air. That we did with all our jobs done and Lucy chose pirate park over the others I gave her to choose from. She had a smashing time playing with her and getting me to join in with her games, especially on the pirate ship. It was just so nice to be outside again and in the sunshine and she Lucy running around and smiling.
When we got home everyone settled down to watch a film together and I got on with making dinner without interruption. After we ate Lucy had time to settle down form her day before she went to bed. She was so tired from the day and after her stories, kisses and cuddles form those she loves, off she went to sleep straight away. With Lucy in bed, Emily's departed for a sleep over at her friends and the house fell quiet.
It hasn't been the most exciting of days but at least we weren't indoors all day. Hopefully we will have more long sunny spells, if not a sunny day or two before the girls are parted for a while, but whatever happens it is a joy to have them altogether.
