A dream of parenting…

If it takes longer to get to a party than you spend there you might think it wouldn’t be worth going, but that isn’t always true.

Grandma and the girls
Ready for the party

We visited Hatfield this Sunday for a 30th birthday party – the Lovely Melanie’s cousin, Nicky – and had a fine time.

It helped, of course, that the girls were in fine fettle and the weather was good, which meant the journey there and back was a family outing in itself.  But it also helped that Nicky and her family are jolly nice people and know how to put on a good spread of food. 😉

Sometimes, four-plus hours of travelling with the girls can be hard work – keeping them amused, stopping them arguing, fending off bennies, etc.  But other times they can be great – making jokes (actual funny-to-adults jokes!), playing nicely with each other and needing very little adult supervision or intervention. 🙂

Yep, we were living the parenting dream yesterday!

It even made up for Saturday, when I spent most of the day doing some overtime for work (interrupted once by fending off another cheeky fox in the back garden).
