Some days are just lovely! Today was one of those days! :D I got to chat on the phone with my pal, Lisa during which time I also cut out a bunch of volunteer trees that were sprouting all over the garden! I made a nice lunch for the kids and took them all into town to drop Jessie off at Shakespeare. After I dropped her I took the other two to the Open Harvest grocery store where we picked out some delicious food. Millie slept through the whole experience, bless her! After that I took some towels I was donating to a friend's pet grooming store and dropped them off, that put me in the region of hubby's work so, on a whim, I thought I'd stop by! I'd never been before but thought hey, why not! It was then I realised my phone was dead dead dead. Silly thing. It's no longer holding a good charge and should probably be replaced BUT if we do that, we'll have to get a whole new contract as our phones are (so old) grandfathered right now!! ;D The phone company is longing for us to trade them in for new, more expensive phones so we have to get the new, expensive contract!! Nope! Not if we can help it!! Anyhoo... not being able to call and warn him we were here we went into reception and I called him from there instead!! :D He was pleasantly surprised to see us and showed us around his colleagues and his workspace! Then he said it was a good thing I came by as his plans had changed and he would no longer be able to pick up Jessie from Shakespeare after all! Lucky break! He'd tried my cell of course... but... well you know that story!! So Jack, Millie and I went to the library! A lady admired my two wheeled stroller and Millie was in great spirits. Jack and I each picked out a big pile of books (well his first pile was all movies, his second pile was books!! ) and we sat in the corner and he showed me that he can read after all!! :D Sweet! Soon it was time to get Jess and we drove over to get her, she told us all about her afternoon on the way home and Millie fell back to sleep again! I stopped to drop off some more donations at the donation box and then once home started dinner. It was delicious!! Soon Rex arrived home too..... with my birthday present.....!! ANOTHER Kayak !!! LOL!! Now Jess and I have one each!! I'm looking forward to us both being able to tootle around on the river this summer!! Yeahy!! ;D
Now Millie is sleeping, Jack and Daddy are playing Wii together and Jess is upstairs reading in her room. The kitchen is clean, the dining table is clean but for a Japanese Ikebana with three Iris flowers in it.
I'm ready to take a book and make for the couch with a nice cup of tea......
and... for all those guessing... my little surprise is NOT a baby brother for Millie!! :D That would be a BIG surprise!! :D
Night all! :D
