This beautiful day .......
5am picked rambling gardenias from the garden ,
the scent was devine.......
6am Baking banana & cinnamon muffins ......
6.30am - the resident magpie dropped by I think because he could smell
the muffins cooling on the windowsill
( can magpies smell , probably not ).......
8am - after breakfast , Master J decides he wants to do a painting
he painted a road with a truck & wrecker ......
10 am - time for morning tea
12 noon - Lunchtime
lettuce & tomatoes fresh from our garden.......
1pm - party time at Southport Aquatic Centre
Now this is where I left Master J with daddy watching
when I had to go & pick up big sister from ballet rehersals.
He was jumping into a pit of foam
( it was supposed to be a pool party but as there was
a threat of electrical storms , swimming was out for the time being)......
1.30 pm - When I came back this is where he was , standing on a 3 meter diving platform !!!
I call out " noooo"
too late apparently he had already jumped off the 5 meter one just a few minutes ago......
2 pm - 4pm There was no stopping him.
He loved it.
All the parents were sitting back watching the kids
having the best time.
When out of the blue & out of character for me , I said Im jumping in
in my clothes !!! What really , yep I did it !!
A little hesitation then just said in my mind DO IT !!
More parents followed.
The kids thought it was great , it was so freeing to just let go.....
( I was going to post the picture of me in my wet clothes
Nah, still cant reveal myself , maybe that should be my next challenge )
Because of the storm threat earlier in the day , basically everyone had left
& the party we were invited to were the only ones there.
I have never been there in all the years of living on the coast.
It was a great idea to have a party & our lifeguard was the best !!
On the way home ( in my still damp clothes ) I got the craving
for a good old fashioned hamburger.
I havent had one in years !!!
Stopped at Paradise Point , kids had chips & played on the sand after.
5.00pm - Of course the seagulls stopped by
to see if we had chips to throw their way.
We bid them farewell & headed home.
6.00 pm - Kids bathed & in their cosy PJ's
We had such an amazing day we didnt want it to end.
Out came the popcorn & The Lorax DVD.
Have you had one of those lately
or taken a chance out of the ordinary & just seized the moment ?
I would love to hear about it
