Talking to another mum last night, we decided that we all need days off to play. Otherwise our life becomes one of never ending work and obligations and grown-up-ness.
Today we said a prayer to St Christopher. Went to Mass - Fr. talked about St James the Greater, about carrying our cross. Went to the doctors, dh took our pilgrims to the airport. Then I took the day off!
I and some of the kids, with a friar visiting from Italy and another friar from our parish, went to the Sydney Aquarium and to the Sydney Wildlife Park. Had lunch out.
I enjoyed the afternoon of play ~ in spite of the rain. Will post pics later...
And , to make up for the day of play, I've had to catch up with work related stuff tonight. Just completed my monthly work ( Kumon) reports that I started last night after work, and completed my Kumon newsletter for August. Hooray! Off to have some dinner and watch some Get Smart with some of the family, then laundry and paperwork before bed. Good night!
