Thought for Thursday

A good holiday is one spent among people whose notions of time are vaguer than yours.
John B. Priestly

If this is the yardstick for a great holiday, than this school holiday has been one of my top 5. I love that holiday feeling of staying in your pyjamas until you absolutely must get out of them...not keeping track of the time and saying 'yes' to all manner of things just because you can.

Tonight, we have just arrived home from a mid week Dinner Over at Nan's house. What is a Dinner Over you ask? A very clever term my 51/2 year old button uses to descibe going somewhere for a play, staying for dinner, having a bath and then going home in the car in your pyjamas. Apparently it is only a Dinner Over if you have the bath and go home in pyjamas - otherwise it is just a playdate! Somewhere on our 11/2hr drive home, the 3 Little Buttons fell asleep, happy and content. It was a lovely day and one of the great things you can do when there are no school bells to answer.

  1. Oh we have 'bath overs' at our house..well we use the term 'bath over' that wasn't an invitation to all and sundry to come and bathe at our house it is simply what my children call have a day/play and dinner over at someones house...not quite a sleep over..just a bath over.
