I take Woody to preschool and get this: we leave practically on time and we are clean. For us, these things do not always go hand in hand, so this is an achievement.
I take Woody to school and then head down to Miami to meet a friend for coffee in a fab(!) coffee shop. All the furniture is mis matched and for sale and the whole back garden is a fenced and shaded sandpit. It is lovely. Apparently they show classic movies where everyone sits in the sand. The place has such a nice feel.
I have a super lovely morning.
I very almost head home, but I don't.
I pop to Pacific Fair and buy presents for two upcoming parties and buys another 3 jars which I am now almost obsessively on the lookout for. I also grab a mango smoothies which taste like sunshine and good health in a cup. very good indeed.
And, i very almost head home, but I don't.
I head to the beach, plonk myself on the sand and soak up the sunshine and gorgeous view. It really is breathtaking. I write a list of all the things I haven't done and then I start thinking about my next article and writing ideas and bits and pieces. I am no where near as constructive as I thought I might be, but the view is distractingly beautiful.
And, again, I very almost head home. But I don't.
I head to Australia Fair as I hear they may have some more jars in. They have 3.
Next I head home.
I am home for half an hour and I get all the costs for a mobile EFTPOS machine
Noah and I head out to a market we have heard about but not been too. it is a farmers market and craft market. But as it turns out, it seems to be mostly people buying food. We have a browse but it is not the market for us. The area promotes itself as having a European feel. By that, it means they have terracotta coloured buildings, a replica of the spanish steps and a massive 'statue of david'. Noah tries to get me to pose next to the statue but that will not be happening.
We have some time to kill so we head to the beach. The day is still gorgeous. We have coffees at the surf club and soak up the sunshine and the view.
And then reality intervenes and we need to go pick up Woody. I chat to one of the teachers and they are happy with all the bits we have done on the biscuit mixes, so we just have to make up the last of the samples.
Back at home, it's dinner and bath and a skype with nannypapa and bed for our super boy. He barely stays awake for his books, and then he is asleep.
Noah spends the evening working and I, quite frankly, spend the evening procrastinating. This is not good, but it is what happens.
Good night lovely folk x
