I had my grandson Friday night, haven't had him for awhile so that was a nice treat, he's just a giggly, happy and mischievous little boy. People adore him everywhere you take him.
He laughed and played happily from the minute I picked him up until the minute I put him to bed and then as always he just laid down and went to sleep, no grizzles, no complaint. Our little man is not a baby any more, he's all grown up at 19 months old.
I did the boring and mundane things like house work and washing but when it's 37c outside then being inside in air-conditioned comfort and doing housework is not a big thing. Then hubby and I took a long walk on the beach on Saturday night with our dog and then stopped for an ice cream on the way home, what a lovely finish to the day.
Hubby is finishing up his second week of holidays (3 to go) and look at what he's been doing to keep busy - building a wood fire pizza oven. He put the final bricks in today. He now just has to wait for the top to dry, put the fire proofing on and then render the whole thing. Then he has to organise a door for it and followed by the firing process to set everything. Believe it or not, this thing weighs around a tonne.

Today with all my house clean and it being too hot to do much else, I sat and read and wrote and started to get some structure around some business plans I have. A few nice cold drinks at the pub this afternoon with a live band and then home to an awesome Asian salad that I'd been planning to make.
Don't you love when something new comes together so well and everyone raves about it, I do. This was my version of a meal that I often have at a Vietnamese restaurant that myself and co-workers go to near work for our 'special' Friday get-out-of-the-office lunches.
Truth be know I'm not much of an adventurous cook, hubby is the one who loves to cook and experiment and I love to let him do it. But this was a nice meal and I was happy with the results.
Now it's 8pm on a Sunday night, both the boys have had big weekends so are already in bed. Hubby's snoozing on the lounge and the dog is basking in her delight at being able to lie on her mattress under the air-conditioning. This dog has a pretty good life.
Let's face it, I have a pretty good life and the good moments make up for the normal shitty little moments we all have to go through.
Now I guess that with everything done I'll just have to relax under the air-conditioning and read my book. Have a good week everyone.
