A nice late lie-in followed by a pancake breakfast with yesterday's freshly picked strawberries, raspberries from our own garden and maple syrup in my homemade pottery jug. Then we sauntered on up to the pool and stayed there for the rest of the day. We had some homegrown Yellow beans brought to us from next door and then Otto's wife popped round with some lettuce (which we had to decline as we had too much of our own).
Whirlpool, splashing, throwing, jumping, river ratting and a game of Uno. As our breakfast was so late, we didn't bother with lunch and had an ice cream instead mid afternoon.
Later we played Upset, still up at the pool. Love it up there - it makes us feel like we are on holiday. We didn't finish the game as we ran out of time and the boys went back into the pool while Huffle and I made some dinner and FaceTimed Grandma and Grandad. We sat and ate and chatted with them and teased them with our scrumptious scones until it was time for us to take Smallest to his football practice.
It was a perfect evening for sitting and watching football and Small and Huffle played catch. The coach kept telling the team to Shake and Bake and we also heard the phrase 'That's a corner picker'. Where do they get these terms from?
Once we were home Small watered the veg and Huffle and I fought off the mosquitoes whilst Backwashing the pool. More watering was done on the garden and then we settled in for the evening.
What a lovely day.
