Well as much as this should be just a weekend post, it’s also an early week post since we’re having a few issues with our spectacular new aircon unit (sarcasm intended). Nothing like getting home and walking into an 85 degree home. Wait. Who am I complaining to? All of the UK have been having a heatwave and I am now able to feel their pain – no air conditioning is just not good. So, back to Fripp we went…Mum was delighted. Or at least I like to think so.
Yep a great weekend on Fripp…relaxing, binging on naughty foods and relaxing. Why don’t we come out here more often?? It’s just not the same when Betty isn’t here but that is entirely on me – I don’t buy ice cream and chips and chocolate like she does. Yes. Adam counts the days until her next visit. If he could find a banner for her arrival I’m pretty sure he’d be waving it. What more could he want though…he gets to sleep as much as he wants (including falling asleep while she’s talking), eating ANYTHING (and having her defend him) and not lift a finger because, and I quote, “…the poor guy has been at work all week, let him rest”. And how about my 24/7 job of taking care of Milly…also tiring and deserving of a rest?!?!?! Waaaaahhhh hear me cry. We’re all spoiled when Betty visits…how lucky we are!
And sleep he did…and so did Milly. I often think how nice it would be to sleep while they played but then I wouldn’t have these pics and instead I would be looking at a pic of myself drooling…probably on myself!!
When we were all awake though, we took a little tour around the island. Something to do that didn’t require getting sun burnt…I don’t need anymore sun that’s for sure. The heat showed all over Amelia’s face and for a while all she could produce was a frown but she soon warmed up to the camera.
By the time we got home she was showing off…I have never had so much fun getting pics. It took no time at all. Such a pretty little soul when she smiles. And when she doesn’t. What can I say…I’m biased!
The walking is coming along and she walks most places now. She reaches up to tables and counter tops that she cannot see so we’re going to have to be careful with what we have up there. She laughs when we say “no” but throws a careful tantrum when we say “uh-uh-uh” (means no). When I say careful I mean that she gently lowers herself to the floor so as no to hurt herself and then starts kicking her legs and screaming…but, not one tear. Awesome phase…hope it doesn’t stick. But she sure does look chuffed with herself with the walking…must get a video – she looks drunk with the way she staggers. That won’t last long at all. And Sara will be so proud of Milly’s downward dog pose (yoga)!!
So, we’re still Frippin’ it, at least until tomorrow and then Betty can get some space. I think I hear her sigh of relief.
Until the next post…
