The long weekend is over *sigh*, but I don’t have to go into the office today *hooray* as I have a meeting elsewhere *sigh*.
Anyway, it was a nice weekend. G and I went over to see my sister and nephew and we went to a farm. We all seemed to enjoy it but my nephew now seems to be more fascinated by playing than by looking at things like animals, so I may need to find a new alibi to visit places like that. Hopefully I can still persuade him to go to Monkey World though. My nephew is so funny though and it seems is also somewhat scared of some animals. There were a few occasions when some sheep bleated and my nephew clung on to me for dear life and was shaking like a leaf. So cute…
Then on Sunday morning G and I looked after my nephew while my sister did a 10K run. We amused him in a play area and fed him kit kat until we reckoned my sister was due again and then we walked back to the track and watched my sister appear again (she was doing three laps). My sister did really well and did it in about an hour. I’m not sure she enjoyed it though, so we’ll see if she does it again.
My sister then dropped me and G at a station and we waited for a train but my sister and nephew reappeared a few minutes later as my nephew was really upset because he hadn’t said goodbye to G properly. I think G was rather chuffed by that. We then headed off and had a picnic and I was so tired when we got home (I’d slept really badly the night before because the job was going round in my head) that G bought a takeaway which I ate and then I fell asleep on the sofa.
Today is actually G and my first anniversary. It’s amazing that I have even remembered because I am rubbish about things like that. I can’t believe a year has gone by already!
