Ahhh Summer

Summer is ice cold drinks, lunch with friends … outside …. and the sound of kids having a waterfight.

I was having a quick lie down … nana nap … and I could hear the kids running in and out of the house and a lot of squealing going on. Turns out their game escalated from using a cup of water to water the plants, to throwing the water at each other. As I lay there listening I figured I had two options … I either get up and growl at them for getting wet, making a mess of the bathroom and dripping water all over the house … or … I show them what a real water fight looks like.

So … I snuck outside, filled a large bucket with icy cold water and then crept along the side of the house. I only had to wait a couple of seconds before Rebekah came close enough to fully appreciate the contents of my bucket. She was so stunned I managed to get back inside before she realised just how wet she’d just got!

Unfortunately I’m still gonna have to get a little grumpy and make them tidy up the wet towels and mess they’ve made … I guess thats just part of being the Mother.

I just found this photo from Australia … yummo gelato, and this was only half the selection. Yes it did take me half an hour to choose!


A little bit different from today’s very kiwi ‘tip-top’ choices … orange choc-chip, hokey pokey, goodie gumdrops etc

Today I had banana choc-chip and frozen yoghurt. What’s your favourite?
