Day 3: Letting them burn off energy before they destroy the house! Priceless


The start of a new week and being Monday we decided that we should take the boys and Amber somewhere for Lunch… The place chosen by the boys was Morrison’s… No really.. They love the kids Ham sandwich boxes with the drink, the frube, the puzzle and pencil, the freddo chocolate bar and the bag of fruit… but we My dad and I were also told to get the fish and chips… granddad has beans with his and I have pea’s . Amber chose a quarterpounder cheese burger and chips.

The boys scoffed theirs down before ours even came to the table…   As soon as our fish and chips arrived they are like vulture’s  both love the crispy ends of the cod so Ali had granddad’s and Alex had mine.. and I’m not talking a little bit im talking a good 1/3 of the fish each… they then have the middle section each as they like the white meat.    (they love cod)  leaving us with the rest… Ali eats both the pea’s and the beans…… Alex scoffs more chips…. Amber can’t believe where they put it all says she will never managed to eat all hers but even her plate was empty by the time it was time to leave… and she had no help from either of the boys. 

We get home and they have some cream cake that we got from Morrison’s each as well .. Granddad goes home to sleep off his dinner and we sit… the boys are getting more and more bored now… we can’t swing a cat in the front room as all the stuff is in there from the hall way as we are waiting for Ambers bed to be delivered tomorrow.

Now they are throwing a ball up and down the stairs asking if Adam can come round… I decided the best way to cure this is to take them up the park so we get Jo and Adam and all go up King Georges… We Sit in the shade while the boys play and play and run around for a couple of hours… shame the little cafe is shut on a monday they would have made a killing today.. As it goes I took a bottle of Apple water so at least the kids had a drink. ..  It is hot and sunny out… Summer has officially started.

we get back making a quick stop on the way back at tesco express to get some scones and have some tea with scones and fresh jam and cream on them.   Allan hoses the dog down and he loves it… fingers crossed the hosepipe ban doesn’t come back on..  as the dog smells so much better.

End result is two very tired boys go to bed and fall asleep straight away the only downside of the day is Ali has cut his foot on the training cones for the football set when he was messing around with them in the garden.  I have cleaned it up and put a bandage on it as Ali hates plasters……… plus it’s actually quite a big cut…

Fingers crossed that is the only Owie we have in the summer!
