With the car still off the road I have been rather limited in what I could do this week. As a result I have been home whilst everyone else was out and about.
Simon and the boys went to Paris on Saturday to watch a rugby match and also sneaked in trip up to the top of The Arc de Triomphe. I stayed home and did ordinary things - dog walking, washing, a bit of gardening, ironing and suchlike.
On Sunday Ben had an all day rugby tournament which Simon took him to. Tom and I stayed home and I did ordinary things ... gite cleaning, baking a cake for guests and welcoming said new guests.
On Monday and Tuesday Ben had a 2 day school trip at an outdoor activity centre and on Tuesday Tom was back in Paris again with school at The Palais de la Découverte (which he loved) - I did ordinary things. So ordinary in fact, I cannot remember what!
On Wednesday Ben was home all day and very tired after his trip and Tom did his usual half day at school and then came home, very tired after his trip. We did manage a dog walk together but weary boys gave up half way along and flopped in the grass and I didn't push them to join me. It wasn't a particularly brilliant or terrible dog walk - it was just ordinary.
