I am sick of referring to my children by their ages so I will be renaming them in this post. (Not to mention, I can never remember their ages!!!)
We had a lovely drive and I was pleased to hear Buddy Boy (Master Six) using his IPad in the back to learn his letters! Well, until he vomited! Some got on his shirt. We stopped to buy a clean top at the next town but the op shop was closed. So.... I dried it out and put it back on him. EEEEW YUK! Nothing was going to stop me from saying hello to Rhonda from Down to Earth and getting my book! Rhonda has just released a new book on Simple Living and it's fantastic!
We stopped in and visited with Lou Lou (eldest daughter) and my beautiful granddaughter. They came with us to the bookstore. In hindsight I should have left my little ones with her at her house!
And there I met Rhonda and Hanno! I really felt like a bit of a groupie!
It was so nice to say hello to her. And I felt even more like a groupie when the lovely woman next to her said hello to me. It was Christine from Slow Living Essentials! I felt a little lurch of excitement to be meeting her as well! We were all geared up for Hanno to take a photo of the three of us, when I noticed Buddy Boy was missing so I had to run off! The shop had an
It's funny how exciting it was to meet my blog-heros but I suppose it's because there is so much connection in talking to people who live similar lifestyles. There are so many of you that I think of often as I go about my daily life. I feel like I know you all and it's a lovely feeling!
From there we stopped at the pet shop and admired a rat. I told Belle (Miss Eight) not to put her finger in the cage. But Lou Lou told her it would be fine so she put her finger in! Guess what - she got bitten!!! Oh the tears!
Then the trek home again (no IPad for Buddy Boy this time) with Pumpkin (Miss Five) and Belle. I hope the harrassed mother with vomit scented children made a good impression on her fellow bloggers! What can you do but laugh, when you have children life never quite goes according to plan.
I sat and relaxed for half an hour with a cup of chai tea and an excellent book before it was time to cook dinner.
What a lovely day!
