A rare few hours to ourselves and I take us to a place which is one hundred percent ‘us’: exploring rocks, caves, catching crabs, masters and commanders of the elements. Kingsley and I are by ourselves from 11 till 3. We are adventurers at McIver Ladies Baths, then eat bananas at Spider Park, hit the beach, body surf, kill bluebottles, shop, buy Elmer’s Cosmic Glue, walk home. My favourite park is definitely catching a crab (albeit a dead one) in the Bug Barn; Kingsley’s favourite park is eating chicken nuggets after our Woolies shop (where I couldn’t help myself and got him the bloody cosmic Elmer’s glue). But a pot of glue is worth it when I have my gurst born back and enjoying my company as we build sand castles and hop around the blue bottle, shower to get sand off and air dry in the sun, together.
Tonight we dine at Jake & Liam’s place, pool party with them then play rugby on their lawn, eat sausages and decorate their individual chocolate cakes.
