Well, anyone who follows me on Twitter will know that J was here over the weekend. He came down on friday afternoon and headed back up yesterday afternoon.
We had a great weekend! It was absolutely pouring with rain for the friday and saturday so we had chilled out indoor-days then, but luckily the sun came out to play on sunday, and so we obliged and enjoyed a walk into town and some play at Junglee Fun (a soft-play area for the little ones, followed by a look in Borders the bookstore to indulge in my stationery fetish. Unfortunately their lack of Moleskine’s was fairly depressing, looks like it’s online ordering for the best bits there.
Max was his usual happy self and Zack was beside himself that “Daddyishere!!! Daddyishere!!!”
Once the boys were settled in at Junglee Fun J even let me go off on my own for a bit with my camera and my iPhone for company. It was only 30 minutes, but it was blissful. 🙂
I had no idea just how much “absence makes the heart grow fonder”… I was so! happy! all! weekend! Except for when I thought of him leaving… that kinda brought me to tears, so I tried not to think of it too much. What’s the point of spending time together when he’s having to listen to my crying about him not being there – that’s what phonecalls in the middle of the night are for!
It was almost harder this time when he left though. Knowing just how hard it is to be away from him. On the other hand, he’s booked off some time at the beginning of June, so he’ll be back for 5 days in just over two weeks. I think I can handle that. 🙂
Oh, and yes… that really is the best photo I got of him…
What did you do this weekend?
