Se7en’s Fabulous Friday Fun #108

February 21st, 2012 · 6 Comments

You know you are on Summer holiday when you are busy linking up your Friday Fun Post on a Monday night… what can I say… the weekend that just won’t quit!!! So here it is: Friday Fun on a Monday… I can’t wait to see what happens the rest of the week!!! Just consider this time a period of surprises as many a day I am called to sit beside the pool from dawn to dusk and cries of “watch me, watch me” echo around the entire neighborhood… And other days I am banished as the kids have plotted and planned their entire day, including the menu, and none of it includes the mother person and a lot of includes reconstructing the entire garden into, – well I am not too sure, but it is clearly a training ground for something!!!
