Cool it

Thank goodness it’s a little cooler tonight. We have just taken Amelia out for Japanese food which was relatively stress-free despite having a tired little girl still recovering from a big day. There was an mini toddler pool party in Vermont South this morning, a long, hot and tiring car ride through the suburbs on the way home because I got really really lost, a trip to the library (mainly to pick up our ACMI films) and an extended Hooley Dooley dance session in the afternoon. So the heat is less intense tonight but it’s been so awful. Yesterday I squirted Amelia with the hose out in the backyard and she thought she had died and gone to heaven. I had the sprinkler nozzle on and I was pointing it into the air and letting it rain down on us (it’s a trigger hose and we were doing it near the beans which needed the water, so please don’t email me and say “what about the water restrictions, huh?”) and it was bliss. My mum got in the way a couple of times and shouted at me that she didn’t like getting her feet wet so from then on Amelia and I both thought it was pretty funny to “accidentally” spray Nan-nan. Now we are going to watch one of our newly borrowed movies… let me just check with the family as to which it will be: Suspiria it is!
