Sorry for going on about it but it did feel like Christmas. Since we were in the big smoke, I managed to drag Pete and poor little Gigi along to some shops where I convinced Pete that yes, we did need 3 very large terracotta pots and some bougainvillea and another test pot of paint for our house. There was barely enough room, seriously, in the car for Rita when we picked her up at Bill and Noelene's on the way home. Pete had a miserable time no doubt but for me the day was absolutely delightful. It didn't end when we got home either because then the buggy had to be reassembled and tested, the pots had to be put into different locations and admired and the children were bathed and we all needed some sort of meal sorted out for dinner. Hectic day for some, satisfying for others.
|and alas Dad can rest....well, sort of|
