Spoon & bottle-feeding, changing nappies, whinnying & scrinnying, lots of laughter and fun (punctuated with but a few tears and sulks) pencilling, crayoning and arguments, tiresome questions and storytelling, moat-building and waterfights, requests for food/drink/money, competitions and prizes, disrespect and untruthfulness, helpfulness and obstruction, role-playing and pre-emptive strikes, complaints, injuries, medicine, plasters and bandages, rivalries and compromises, rum, wine, cider & beer, attention demands and deficits, swim-suited and topless photographs, abuse and lack of respect, some real history, salt water & sandy places - Even fishing, kite-flying and tangled lines, etc, etc….. The whole range of moods and incidents characterising ‘happy families' of differing mores and ages - What is there not to like? NB The above records my observations chez BOOTWU over the Bank Holiday. Rum Ration encapsulated: Minus some offending Ironing, Political & Copulation dits...... (They happened too - Omitted only to protect the innocent participant. :-| ) How productive/reproductive was your weekend?
