Enough of the fun stuff now.....there is work to be done around here ya know. Chez Jazzy needed a clean up. So I drafted in some help.
Our car was filthy after our long drive so WiiBoy washed it (with minimal assistance from me)
We were expecting some special visitors so yesterday we got to work! House needed some tidying up...it would be nice for our visitors to be able to find a seat to sit on, amongst the clutter!
Downstairs needed hoovering (so did upstairs but sure they won't be going up there!) WiiBoy to the rescue!
WiiBoy really wanted our garden furniture set up but patio needed cleaning first....
He then got to enjoy the fruit of his labour...
After all that work (he really did all that by himself!) we headed to the beach where we whiled away a blissful two hours lounging about listening to the waves gently breaking on the beach and munching on our PopNic (Wiiboy's cool new name for Popcorn Picnic...cool, eh?!) Followed by more lounging about in the nearby park.
Then, as we knew they were coming we baked a cake. Well, it was in theory a cake!
And today our special visitors arrived! Yes, we had a lovely visit from the ever- lovely Blue Sky who was accompanied by the ever-cool CD and the ever-smiling Smiley...... and a plate of yummy brownies!! It was fantastic. We really wanted to get WiiBoy and CD together as they have very similar interests etc. But, would it work? Would they get on or would it all fall apart?
All I'll say is that Blue Sky and I were left to chat in peace while the boys bonded through Xbox play. See, Xbox IS good for something after all ;-)
They got on so well. Same interests and same sense of humour. We could barely get a word in!
We thought a quick walk to the beach before their journey home would be nice so off we went. We spent nearly an hour down there as the boys got a little carried away with their paddling in the sea! It started off as chasing other other on the sand then paddling but ended up with them both totally immersing themselves in the water. Fully clothed!! Oh the squeals of joy from them, it was a pleasure to behold.So, we just left them at it!
We somehow, eventually managed to drag them back to the house and the boys said said their excited farewells, making promises to befriend each other on Xbox!
I literally deposited a saturated WiiBoy into the shower, from where he waxed lyrical about his new found friendship! He was so excited and so, so happy. He was amazed that he made a new best friend today ...a straight best friend as he says, in that they became best friends immediately!
Yes, I believe a friendship was forged today.
And that's good. Real good :-)
