However, yesterday was amazing. The best day I have had in a very long time.
Saturday night was a horrible night with the kids. They were up and down all night. Shane and I got very little sleep. So when we woke up on Sunday morning, Shane decided we were not going to church. Then I had the bright idea of ringing my Mum to see if she wouldn't mind taking the kids to church for us. (I have the best Mum in the world, I know).
So instead of church on Sunday morning, Shane and I slept. And it was good. Then we decided to go out and have coffee.
When church was over, My Mum brought the kids to the coffee shop, and while I was feeding Charlie there, I mentioned that we would love to see The Avengers. It was on at lunchtime, but I just idly said it as a dream, not really thinking that we would be able to go. But Mum said "Why not?" and (because she is a saint) she took the kids back to her house. So while she and my Dad looked after my babies (again!) Shane and I went to the movies and watched The Avengers.
After the movie was finished we went and picked up our two very tired children, and Georgie had a little afternoon nap. Once she woke up, we decided to pop around and see Shane's parents, and then we ended up playing on the xbox connect, and staying for dinner.
|Dinner at Granny Kay's house.|
It was such a fun night. Georgie toddled around their house with a child sized shopping trolley, emptied out her Granny Kay's pantry, and thought it was pretty funny when Mummy and Daddy were boxing against one another, and Charlie got properly acquainted with his Grandad.
It was so unexpected. You couldn't have planned a day like that. But it was just exactly what I needed. It was so nice to spend a day with Shane. It made me remember how much I like him. I am so grateful for family, and I am so glad for a great day.
