day of week


22 October 2006

We hoofed over to the other side of town to a friend’s housewarming bbq. Heaps of people, nice conversations, yummy food, lovely house – but it had a small courtyard. Small children and small spaces? I thought a disaster would befall us, but my two boys surprised me.

They kept themselves amused. Climbing up and down the benches. Playing with ice. Helping themselves to food. Playing with a ball. Stomping on leaves. Finding pegs on a line and making a game out of it.

At one point Sean disappeared. Everyone in the courtyard had a semi heart attack. But I knew where he was.
