Or to Kew Bush which, by the way, is protected by QEII Open Space Covenant.
|A thunderstorm rolled through, so we took shelter under a large tree whilst hail pelted down around us.|
We continue going to playgrounds.
We demolish chimneys.
|View from the rooftop|
We spend time in the back yard.
|A little courgette growing|
And, also, spend time indoors doing stuff.
|One is putting together a Lego car, the other a foam dinosaur|
|The kids got sweets as a Christmas present from the hardware shop and delighted in consuming them within a very short time, all at once. Well... it's Christmas, I guess :).|
|It was funny when a t-shirt that arrived as a present from Europe was identical (except, a size bigger) to the one The Kid was wearing that day already :)|
|The Kid practiced writing numbers to a hundred|
Even the washing machine attempted to have a long summer holiday when it broke down a day after Christmas just as every serviceman closed their workshop. What it didn't know though, is that my workmate's fiancee is a man who knows how to fix a lot of things! It also didn't know that if I ordered a new washing machine pump through www.homeappliancesonline.co.nz the pump would arrive at my doorstep in less than 24 hours!!
So, yeah: nice try, washing machine, but you only got 5 days off this summer ;)
Now if we could also find a plumber who could fix our hot water tank overflow which we also discovered just after Christmas when everyone's workshop is closed until 8 January.. Christmas, eh.
