Week 4 - Summer Holidays 2012

I felt very sad to see the end of the Olympics and it has seemed very odd not having the tv on all the time with the murmur of sporting achievements and commentary in the background.

We really enjoyed the Closing Ceremony though and as we had people over on Sunday for a sunny relaxed lunch we all watched the Closing Ceremony with much talk of "who's that" and the different generations explaining who was who. As we watched it we even got to tell the boys that we had 'Always Look on The Bright Side of Life' played on the organ as we left the church on our wedding day which made me even more nostalgic! 

So this week has been a bit more of a work week for me 
whilst the boys have spent their time perfecting scooter moves. 

The boys are obsessed completely obflippinsessed with their scooters and spend hours with each other and friends talking about the improvements that could/can be made. I've had various boys here this week boring for Britain about scooters, scooter parts and scooter parks! They talk another language about double whips, jumping five stair sets, hop in pool bowl, bar out and double whip out flat bank ..... ????

But hey they're doing something active and outside so does it matter that I have no idea what they are talking about as it keeps them amused and Oscar has even been very helpful around the house/garden today because he needs bus money to get to .... yes you've guessed it .... the local skate park!


  1. I made the same comment about Always Look on the Bright Side of Life. I want it played at my funeral. Make a note please Jo.

    1. Duly noted Anne I will add it to my funeral folder. Yes I really do have a funeral folder for this exact reason so never say these things in jest or you might live to regret it (ha ha geddit). Your music request is v different to Mum's!
