Kids, Food, Spiders & Crocodiles

Another great day with the sun out once again, so after a lazy morning, the kids and I took to the park to soak up some sun.  We had a great time, well they did especially, I sat and watch mostly, a little to old for climbing frames and swings now.

Ben found a few friends to play football with, which kept him occupied for a while, whilst Eve continued to play and the equipment, though they came together to play again, before we had a quick game of football between us.

We left the park for a drink at the Pub around the corner, where they then decided they were hungry and gave those sad faces until I said we could eat there, they know which faces to pull!

They both chose their meals and I chose a burger tower which they said was like Man Vrs Food or Dad Vrs Food, when it arrived they said I wouldn’t finish it, but I proved them wrong, Adam Richman would have been proud!

It’s been a great weekend with the kids, Eve in particular has kept us entertained, on Saturday her scream rang throughout the house when there was a spider in the back room, you may remember how I previously saved her from a spider, well this time she took it on herself, the tiniest of spiders was hanging from the ceiling by a single thread and she was waving a brush handle at it, widely swinging and grandly missing, so I calmly scooped up the spider and put it outside, incredibly for me without pulling off one of it’s legs.

Then yesterday morning I woke to find her walking around the house dressed in a crocodile outfit, not the strangest thing I’ve ever woke to, but pretty close!

Oh well, back to work tomorrow, lots to do as usual, but I’ll be glad to get back into a routine again, plus get rid of the extra pounds I’ve put on this weekend!

THIS LIFE by THE AFTERS
I come in to tuck her in
I’m so tired from where I’ve been, doing all I can to stay awake
As she goes on about her day, I hang on every word she says
She reaches out and puts her hand in mine
For a moment, we are here together
And it hits me that this won’t last forever

We can’t own it
We just get to hold it for a while
This life
We can’t keep it
Or save it for another time
This life

He was always there for me
Now he’s fighting just to breathe
I tell him it’s ok to let go
As I look into his eyes, I know that this won’t be the last time
But for now, we’re taking different roads
For a moment, we are here together
And it hits me that this won’t last forever

We can’t own it
We just get to hold it for a while
This life
We can’t keep it
Or save it for another time
This life

What we give is all we have
How we love is what will last
And this hope we know will carry us through
What we give is all we have
How we love is what will last
And this hope we know will carry us through this life
What we give is all we have
How we love is what will last
And this hope we know will carry us through this life
What we give is all we have
How we love is what will last
And this hope we know will carry us through

We can’t own it
We just get to hold it for a while
This life
We can’t keep it
Or save it for another time
This life

We were never meant to stay
So we don’t have to be afraid
Of what is waiting on the other side of this life
