Crepes & Co

It was great to wake up this morning and go and wake the kids up. We have decided to spend the day doing what they want and after breakfast they head for the pool. I am putting the dreaded schoolwork off for today. They did cover 2 sections of science whilst they were with Jem and Caron, so I don’t feel too bad about it.

We have a quiet and lazy day sat by the pool sunbathing and reading. There are two children staying here called Callum and Hazel and before too long they are all playing together. Simon and I chat to their mum and she tells us they are on holiday for a month and heading to Ko Samui on Saturday.

By 5.30 we’re all feeling a bit frazzled, it has been cloudy on and off today but very hot and we all have our showers to cool down. We collect a huge bag of laundry and I have a big sort out of the kid’s clothes. We will leave some stuff here as they have come back with a few new items and some of their gear is starting to look really worn.

Maisie sits on the bed reading the Lonely Planet and announces she has found somewhere for dinner. It turns out to be a crepe restaurant and as it is only 2 skytrain stops away we decide to give it a try. The food is ok but the setting is lovely and we have another relaxed and happy evening chatting together. We call off at Haagen Daz on the way home and all end up sharing Maisie’s cone. As usual her eyes are bigger than her belly!
