Wet, wet, wet = Pyjama Day

We were all set for a play-date this morning, but Alice had me tossing and turning a bit in the night and Charlotte sounded heavy with a cough first thing. I canned the play-date and proclaimed a ‘Pyjama Day’.

We started with Disney Sing Star after breakfast:

Made chocolate chip cookies for morning tea:

Followed with a jam session on the keyboard and guitar:

Then we decided to have some fun in the rain:

Jumping in puddles

And check the mail (because we don’t have a letter box in our front door like in the UK, instead we walk to the bottom of the drive-way):

Checking the mail

Had a warm bath in the middle of the day:


Played in the mud in the garden (I was watching from the kitchen, busy doing the dishes and minding Alice – alas no photos!).

And got out the lego, whilst Alice conked out for a nap mid-feed (me looking lovely in p-jays, pulled back hair and not a smidgen of make-up – very brave posting this photo up)!

Lego & Alice

Frances rode in at a little past 3.00pm, like the calvary, to take Charlotte and Sophie off to the swimming pool to burn off some steam. Mummy and Alice retreated to bed for a wee nap before dinner, bath and bed… still haven’t adjusted to daylight saving – they went to sleep before 9.00pm – just.

A great Pyjama Day and guess what… it’s STILL raining!
