The boys have been sharing a room upstairs now for the last couple of months (this has been very successful) and Isla has been sleeping on a trundler bed on the floor since the move. Eben moved from a toddler bed (his old crib) upstairs into Isla’s old bed and we didn’t have a bed for Isla. After much searching on trade me I finally found a suitable bed for Isla that the trundler bed fits under and we rearranged Isla’s room. She wrote about getting her new bed at writing on Friday. ” On Friday I got a new bed, it had a pink candy floss bed frame and a very bouncy mattress. Because my other bed was on the ground and I got an electric blanket. I was surprised how small it was. It was miniature!” I asked her to take a photo of her new bed and the following photo is what she took.
We met our friends Molly and Jerimiah and their kids Milo and Naomi for lunch and a play on the beach. Finally time to roast marshmallows! Note to self- hide marshmallows until it is time to roast them and therefore avoid hearing “Is it time for marshmallows yet?” x200 Not a day for a swim! The waves were fierce!
Abel was there too but not his usual self. He was feeling a bit unwell, poor wee guy. He perked up briefly to help with hut building but mainly just wanted to sit on my knee (or cling to my leg as in this photo). Hopefully a good sleep tonight and he will feel better.
Back to school tomorrow, fingers crossed Abel bounces out of bed tomorrow morning.
We had a much more uneventful trip back. We had quite a few stops so it took us a while. We left about 12:30 but didn’t get home until nearly 7pm. We stopped at the top of the Lindis Pass, in Twizel, Lake Tekapo and then in Ashburton for a Thai meal for dinner. The shots in Lake Tekapo were taken by Isla.
