Then, as the sun was shining and it is my mum's last day with us we did what you do for entertainment around here. It was down to the canal for us.
The girls thought it was going to be all about posing -
- but I had other ideas. I put them to work, for strangers, just for the joy of it. (Ah, go on, they loved it!)
|I was the one shouting 'Push!' from behind the camera.|
|A bit more practice.|
|And then they were doing it on their own.|
|Then, poor Helen was all by herself because...|
|...Emily was making friends.|
|She even ran down the canal beside them so she could continue her conversation. Bless!|
And then there was the joy of being on the opposite side of the canal to me -
So a little child labour does no harm in our household. I get cakes and they get to have fun. After all, does this look like a severely traumatised child?
I have thoroughly enjoy the past few days and will miss my mum lots when she has left, but I am looking forward to reclaiming the dining room table and turning that space back into mine! After writing yesterday's post about projects I need to complete I am just itching to get on with it.
