Fireworks!! Gorgeous bursts of colour, loud bangs, and all seen perfectly out of the boys' bedroom window!
I should have known something like this would happen just as everyone settled into bed. Today the washing machine repair guy came to repair a washing machine that NOTHING WAS WRONG WITH. And I had a conversation with Sam that went:
"WHY ARE YOU WEARING A WETSUIT!"
"What?? You said to put something on."
"Something normal, Sam."
"Sam, a wetsuit is inappropriate. It's hard to wash."
We both walked away from that conversation baffled and rolling our eyes. Sam thinks his family is weird and his mother is completely unreasonable.
Guy Fawkes Night is on Thursday, so we can probably expect some more awesome shows at bedtime. The boys have the best view, over the school playground and towards some park or other. We're looking forward to a whole new experience this week! We will try to dress appropriately, and not be too weird.
