Note! I wrote this a week ago, but never published it.
I’ve added the photos and finally, here it is The long weekend is August 14th – 18th, 2008.
It’s not long since I came back from vacation, but it was so good to have the weekend + a couple of days, free, last week. Days that we spent with our friend, family and IKEA
Thursday we chilled out at home. Or that was the plan. I had a few scrap pages to finish and it took, off course, much longer time to finish than anticipated. (I don’t know why I still think that it will only go an hour doing a page?!?!?) Suddenly (to me) we were late, so I tried to finish my scrap while cooking dinner and packing at the same time. MT got to eat the dinner all alone with me running around trying to remember the important stuff. LOL. Then we just had to run because the bus was coming; we ran down and got there right on time. Puh! But the bus was late; if I knew I could have remembered to bring underwear for MT, or a t-shirt, or unplugged the laptop! (I’m so glad there wasn’t thunder storm that day)….. but didn’t dare to walk up again since the bus could come any time. And it did, after a 15 minutes wait or so. I ate my cold dinner at the bus.
My mom collected us from the bus and drove us the short trip home to the farm. Soon my friend Bea came as well and we enjoyed the evening together (at least, we all enjoyed it after Bea and dad fixed her car). As if this wasn’t company enough, my brother and family suddenly came by with their caravan (to place on the hill behind the farm house; best view in town ). MT had so much fun with his cousins and we adults chatted away; we even went for a little nightly walk.
Friday we woke up early. All of us tired. But thrilled (that goes for the adult), this was the going-to-IKEA day I think it’s over a year since last time, and I missed it so much. Fun to go with my friend too! MT didn’t find IKEA that funny, but he loved the play room and found himself a nice new animal.
The funniest thing was MT falling asleep while we looked around, I don’t know how he managed to sleep like this – but he sure did!
