I think we must be having the best of the weather here in the UK. It has been cloudy for the past few days but previous to that the weather has continued to be bright, warm and sunny. We've had none of the torrential rain or gales although our lawn could do with a drop, it's looking quite parched.
My friend Amanda came to stay with her youngest son who is great friends with Alf. They haven't seen each other since last November yet you would think it was only yesterday. Alf quickly informed Elliott that Power Rangers are no longer cool and that they were 'babyish' and the next best thing was in fact Star Wars (his latest craze). Once they had that established they quickly launched into playing and they didn't stop until Alfie, hugging Elliott hard, had to say goodbye a few days later. Amanda and I spent time shopping, drinking wine and catching up.
I love having Amanda round, we have been friends for years now, and she helps me realise that Alfie's behaviour is just normal 'boy' behaviour which is hard for those with just girls to understand. Amanda has 3 sons so she is an expert. Poor Alf is sandwiched between his two sisters so his boisterousness sticks out like a sore thumb. In the company of another boy he is in his element. I just need to borrow one permanently, a big brother! Pin It
