Can you hear that?????..... Listen very carefully...... Its the sound of silence. After having a 7y.o. in the house for the past 10 days who has gone from completely mute to chattering none stop 24/7 it is wonderful. We can hear each other speak now, without having to say we are talking to stop him from chattering. Mind you we are going to miss him and D1, BUT the silence is golden.
So we have had the best time over the past month with pre Christmas visits to our family, then Christmas, then our daughter and grandson visiting for the new year. Life will seem rather dull after all the excitement.
My Bear was getting a bit antsy whilst D1 was here this time and kept coming up to cuddle me in front of her, whilst I was preparing meals or doing dishes. He even gave me a few really hard swats and told me to call him Sir when I answered him on several occasions. She didn't say anything at the time which surprised me.
We took them on our little tram one day. When we were waiting D1 and I sat down, there weren't enough seats for everyone. After a while I stood to let Bear sit for a while. He grabbed me and sat me down on his lap. So D1 said "Gosh you two are acting like randy teenagers." She had the nerve to take our photo and face book it. Bear replied "You're a long time dead."
That night she said to me that it looks like we're getting on really well. I so desperately wanted to tell her our secret but resisted. To my surprise she asked to borrow my FSOG book and dvd. I almost died of shock as this is the girl who comments that I'm reading DIRTY books. PK she was almost going to add that to my reference to Cassie on fb until she saw your comment.
Speaking of which that went down like a lead balloon. Nobody commented and to my surprise D1s ex MIL actually shared it. Would love to be a fly on the wall if she reads the Cassie series. LOL! Also would love to know what she thinks of me when she realises what sort of books I'm into. She already thinks our family are hill billies and is happy now D1 and her son are separated.
Yesterday we had a cruise ship come into our port which is a novelty. Although we are the only deep sea port between Melbourne and Adelaide, cruise ships only started coming in last year. So this was our forth ship and there will be another one next Wednesday. The town was buzzing with tourists both off the ship and out of towners coming to see the ship. It was such a wonderful day with a market, carnival and heaps of activities happening around everywhere.
Today D1 and little J drove off to return home, we did a quick clean up around the house and enjoyed some wonderful adult time which we had been missing. Of course we had to live up to what our daughter called us and acted like randy teenagers. Still haven't had my first spanking for the year but think that is not far off. We have to do lots of catching up. Also catch up on sleep as we are all sleep deprived.
Also need to catch up on everyone's posts, read my books and write. So hard with a 7y.o. asking what am I doing all the time and looking over my shoulder.
Hope everyone had a wonderful new year and 2016 brings you everything you wish for. Have a good weekend.
