…(and it’s about bloody time)…
The boys had their Easter Bonnet Parade at school today (I’ve just realised this year was Master 7’s last Easter Parade, he’ll be too old next year! *sniff*). Never one to plan ahead it was a hurried trip to the shops yesterday afternoon to buy supplies. By the time I dragged the kiddos back home the rest of the evening was spent helping them attach stuff to their hats with safety pins whilst juggling dinner and attempting to not burn yet another fry pan full of sausages (on the up side, the smoke detectors are in full working order).
The weather has been unseasonably warm here in London. Normally April weather sits around the 13 degree (celcius) mark but we’ve been getting 20+ weather all week. It has definitely highlighted how much our bodies have adjusted to the U.K’s milder climate. 20 degrees in the middle of the day is a comfy run of the mill Winter’s day in Brisbane, but to us it’s now positively warm. I won’t go as far as to say we’re completely English…I don’t think we’ll ever join the, “oh my, its 20 degrees…best take me shirt off and strut through the streets” crowd, but it is amazing how our concept of warm has changed over the past almost 2 years.
We went for a wander through the Woodland after school.
