It started with the best of intentions, I swear. I have a half-typed post that was intended for Friday, but my routine was upheaved and that’s where my shit was lost. I went out with Kayla and some friends on Friday morning and returned home after my usual blog-uploading time. I got busy. Kayla had a nasty fall and required more attention than usual (she’s fine now, don’t worry).
Then, after dinner, I realised I’d forgotten to blog altogether. It was a hectic kind of day.
As I said, it started with good intentions. I even took a lot of photos – I copied 71 pics to my blog folder. Unfortunately, the sheer majority of them are unusable. What the hell was I on this weekend!? I have no idea, but every photo is blurred. I’m blaming it on mind-controlling aliens.
We had typical European weather – lots of rain. Still, that didn’t deter us. We were out shopping on Friday and Saturday, in prep for our friends coming to visit in T-minus 9 days. Have I mentioned that on the blog? No? Well, we’re receiving guests next week. Excitement levels are through the roof, but more on that at the end of the post.
At home, there was a lot of Pony and Troll watching on TV, loads of block building and random pretending. Jan ended up being Kayla’s dragon-friend, and I was a knight. Woohoo.
Anyway, here’s what I managed to salvage from the photos.
As you can tell, we’ve been having a ton of fun with glowsticks at bathtime.
OK, back to the visitorials. This is the fourth time since moving to Germany that we’re receiving people, and it’s the first group of non-family beings too. To say I’m excited is an understatement, as you can imagine. But I reckon the one most excited is Kayla, because her buddies Emily and Gemma are coming too.
The point of this is that I’ll blog this week, but then I’m going on hiatus until the visit is over. I’ll be back for the last week of April, resuming my blogging on the 24th. I have no idea how my writing will go in this time, but heck, a break might be just what I need in that regard too.
The good news is I’ll have better Photo Diary posts for you. 🙂 We’re going to see a lot of sights, including a visit to Rome. That’s a massive dream come true for me too. So, watch this space.
Hope you have a good week!
