Oh My Goodness! It has been HOT today. Even the 3/4 trousers I pull out of the wardrobe to acknowledge summer has arrived have been replaced by shorts.
We had loosely discussed going out for the day - I fancied seeing some countryside after looking at the photos Rachel and Jules posted on Instagram, but we both decided sitting in the car, possibly in traffic queues, would be a waste of a lovely day, so we stayed put.
I got the paddling pool out yesterday. I wasn't sure if anybody would get in it, but who can resist a bit of splashing about whatever age you are.
Amy and Thomas spent the first 15 minutes bickering - Thomas wanted to splash Amy, Amy didn't want him to, so I gave them half a pool each! It wasn't long before Amy got into the swing of things and her glasses came off - a sure sign she was about to give Thomas as good as she was getting.
Then they played forfeits, where one had to sit on a chair and answer questions about the other. Get it wrong and you got a bowl of water poured over you. As well as being funny it was really interesting to hear just how much they actually know about each other. Questions ranged from favourite colour, food, pokemon characters, friends and special dates to the more bizarre just so they could tip water over each other.
Amy eventually got out and left Thomas playing a game of trying to throw the bowl up and get it to land on his head. He must have spent a good hour doing this. Funny what keeps them entertained isn't it.
I got up this morning and they were already back in it. In the afternoon I dipped my toes in. It was so warm that I couldn't resist lying down in it to cool off. Lovely and much better than sitting in a hot car.
Hope you've all enjoyed your Sunday. xx
