After a fancy brunch at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler, there was pool time, a family games nights, then curling up with a glass of red to finish my book.
Oh, once again elder child has grown out of clothing that was only bought at beginning of this year. After the great ‘try on’ he only had sweatpants & one pair of jeans that fit. Thankfully the top half was fine as he wears t-shirts all year round. So it was off to the outlet stores this afternoon & oh my, & did we shop!! We even went to the Lindt outlet & did quite a lot of damage on chocolate alone. I am a serious bargain hunter. I always try to buy in sales & outlets if I can, it’s very rare for me to pay full price, if I do it’s usually because I think it’s worth it. In the end we all had bags & bargains. We also treated ourselves to dinner out, & the boys let off some steam in the playground. I all made up for the wet & miserable start to the day, but of course when you decide to go shopping because there’s not much else you can do… the sun comes out!!
… too tired to type so here’s a summary of why…
School run, quick dog walk then dropped her at the pet salon for a bath. Straight to my 9.50 appointment with my surgeon. All good, but I need to work at strengthening my knee. She discharges me then spends the rest of the appointment asking about my boy’s school because she is unhappy with the public system. I then go to the mall to see if I can get better swimming bags for the boys, I buy scented candles instead. Then to Costco because believe it or not there is very little food left. After a MONSTER shop I head home. I walk through the door at 12.45.
I am wasting away so I eat leftover Kale & Quinoa salad & it tastes amazing because I’m so hungry. I check my email & find out that the swimming club will be selling club wear on Monday at the pool – I need not have gone for bags. I set to & put everything away. I stack all the meat in the fridge because I haven’t got time to put it all through the food saver. I finish up with everything else at 2.20. I make a cup of tea & strum my guitar for 15 minutes before going out again to pick everyone up. I am so glad that elder child has a lot of homework so he doesn’t want to play in the playground. We pick up Tessy on our way home. She sits in the back of the Mini with the roof down pretending to be a canine Loreal advert.
Home, drink, snack & homework. I put all the meat through the food saver while younger child moans & groans sat at the kitchen island at how mean I am making him do all his writing practice when it doesn’t have to be in until Thursday. I point out that it is club swimming tomorrow after school so there will be no time. He is not convinced. After the meat I have to start & make dinner. I discover that despite all the food I have purchased I don’t have enough fusilli or penne so it’s Mac & cheese. Hubby is very late…
We finally eat & the boys shower. After cleaning all the bits of kitchen hubby forgot to do when he washed up, I make lunches for tomorrow. I then discover that the boys have no clean polo shirts for school – GRRRRR!!! I put a white load in the washing machine & declare I am done, done, DONE!!!
I run a bath & start a new book. When I get out hubby asks if I’m interested in wine – Really dear, you have to ask?
And that was just a summary!
