Dancing and singing and sun

I can see blue skies! Amazing! we have one day of clear(-ish) blue skies and sun shine before the rain comes.  But we can’t complain too much, at least it is not as cold as it has been. We still to fresh snow on Saturday but most of it has been washed away by the rain the followed yesterday.

Well, now that we have the weather talk out the way, let me ask you how your weekend was?
Ours was good.

We sent the kids to my parents on Saturday night for a sleep-over while the man & I went to a combined 40th.  It was fun. I can’t remember when last the two of us went to a party together.  I think we got home at about 2:30 so it was a good night.

Unfortunately I had to get up earlier than what I would have liked to after our night out, but I had to fetch the kids from my folks and drive to Duffle. We had tickets to go and see a pantomime.

Do you know what a panto is? If not I found this great website which will tell you all you have to know.

Anyway, we made it to Duffle and then we drove to Antwerp with my friend Noreen. We met up with some other friends and their kids so it was quite a group of us in the end.  Panto really is for the kids and it showed. The kids had a blast, they were shouting and dancing and taking part. There were times when Noreen & I just looked at each other cause the singing was SOOOOOO BAD! Honestly I had to bite my hand to stop myself from laughing out loud! (It would have been better if they were trying to sing badly, i/o just singing).

After a quick dinner we drove back home … poor kids, they got to bad long past their bedtime but they slept in the car so I didn’t feel too bad. Himself says I really ought to feel bad but it’s not often that they go to bed that late on a school night.  I’ll make sure they go to bed a bit earlier tonight.  I have loads of ironing to do in since I didn’t do any yesterday … so excited about that! (very sarcastic)


  1. Sounds like one productive weekend, and maybe a tiring Monday for the kiddos? I remember being able to stay up past my bedtime and paying for it the next day at school! BUT it was also the most funnest time to rebel!

    Hope you have a fab week!

  2. what a busy weekend and Mondays are rough all the time even with sleep
