Family and Friends Weekend
I had a good trip down to Montreal over the weekend to celebrate the 'baby' grandson's 7th birthday. In a message I sent to Hands after arriving, I said I had forgotten how loud / noisy my family was!! And busy -- my god they are busy -- there is always someone coming or going from the house. Honestly I don't know how my daughter manages -- though I am sure life was pretty much like that when I was raising my children.
The birthday boy had asked me to buy him 3D Qixels. Last year he had asked for Qixels -- a new toy on the market at the time. The kit comes with the smallest little bricks you have ever seen -- you join them up a bit like Legos then spray with water and they glue themselves together. He loved that set and when he heard they were bringing out 3D Qixels he had to have them. So 'Grandma' found a set and he was thrilled.
On Sunday morning he had to pull it out and make one Qixel before I left. I have to say I was VERY impressed with his fine motor skills, and his patience. I took pictures that don't really do it justice -- but take a look....
this is a picture of the assembly stage.....
and here is the finished project...........
Once I saw the "dog" completed I loaded up the car and drove a third of the way home and stopped to visit an old friend for coffee. We had a great time chatting and getting caught up on each other's news...... and promised each other we would stay in touch.
Whether we actually do or not -- shrug -- it doesn't matter -- it was good to see him again and reminisce about the old days in the Montreal BDSM community.
I arrived home just before the Grey Cup game (Canadian football), changed into my pjs and snuggled up with Miss Ashes the prissy cat and thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet.
Now it's time to get back into routine ..... I am more than ready for life to return to normal.
