It has been sweltering today.
Very happy indeed that I bought the pop up gazebos from Halfords, yesterday. It meant while C and J napped, Rye was able to play in the garden in the shade, and out of the hottest part of the day.
Had a lovely tea too; I boiled up some wholewheat pasta and blitzed in the processor, tomatoes, an orange (peeled), 2 cloves of garlic and a handful of fresh parsley; and I was going to maek a side salad to go with, when I decided to just mix it all together; the salad contained, salad leaves, cucumber, red pepper, celery, grated carrot and beetroot, and I also added some feta cheese too. It was blumming lovely. Rye ate all his, (minus the cheese, he decided he wasn't that keen on feta), mindee liked the pasta but didn't seem keen on the salad, it too her a good ten or twenty minutes to actually swallow a mouthful - mind she does this all the time, I've never known a child mastitate their food like she does!
Anyway, after tea, I took Rye down to the beach, to try out his new (preloved) wetsuit, and I even popped on my cosie, and together we went into the sea. Took a little coaxing to get him to come in to my depth (the sea at the sunny sands graduates out very, very slowly. I had wanted to have a wee swim, but he was getting a little stressy and shouting, "No, mummy, don't go any further". Nevermind, maybe next time.
A really pleasant end to a nice day, shame I managed to twist my knee again getting out of the taxi and now can't walk very well. Pah. Still with any luck it will be fine in the morning.
