Hurray! For the first time in weeks we have had a day without any rain. It has generally been quite a productive day -I even bought my first baby clothes, but admittedly they were brand new and from a car boot sale but they were a bargain!
In the afternoon Mum and Auntie Cath and I managed to sit in the garden and play Scrabble. Perfect!
After a really busy day yesterday this afternoon was all about relaxing.
Mum and I sat in front of the TV and watched the river pageant and played Scrabble. Dad watched the pageant in between his naps and The Mister read his Kindle.
It was lovely to have an afternoon with no schedule and I particularly like it when I get the chance to play Scrabble with Mum. We love this game and I have probably been playing it since I was about 10 years old. These days however, I can beat Mum… just like I did today! I have lots of memories of playing with Gran Nora as well as Mum, and as Gran got older she would seriously make words up, or she would browse through the Official Scrabble Words… basically cheating. Playing Scrabble has been such an integral part of my life for so many years I can’t imagine not playing regularly.
