Roxy, Roxy, quite contrary! August 28, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — wheredidthatdaygo @ 12:43 pm

So this week in Letchworth town centre they’ve got an ‘urban beach’! (Basically a giant sandpit with deck chairs round the side). Great idea, I thought, to while away some more of these never ending days before all Roxy’s groups and classes start back again after summer. So we arranged to meet up with some friends and spend the morning down at the beach!

After about 5 minutes (before any of our friends have even arrived) Roxy declares ‘Mummy, I have finished at the seaside’! Great! So I proceed to spend the next hour trying my best distraction techniques and ignoring the regular interruptions of ‘I have finished Mummy’. Eventually this turned in to the oh so familiar refrains of ‘I’m hungry’ and ‘I go home’

Admitting defeat, I give in and agree that we can go home for some lunch.

We arrive home and I say ‘right I’ll make some lunch then shall I?’

‘No mummy, I don’t want lunch’

‘What do you want then?’

‘Can I play in my sandpit?’


An hour later, we still haven’t had lunch and Roxy is still playing in her 1 metre square sandpit!!!


Attempted DIY August 16, 2013

So I attempted to be vaguely useful yesterday and put up a hook on the back of Roxy’s door! There I was power drill in hand and Roxy looked at me, burst out laughing and said “what are you doing Mummy?!”

Just putting this hook on your door for you, I told her. She looked at me, gave me the most pitying smile and said “maybe Daddy can help you”!!!!

Needless to say, Roxy’s lack of faith in my DIY skills was spot on as I somehow managed to get the screw stuck half in and half out of the door, oh well!!!


Roxy on golf August 11, 2013

We took Roxy to David’s golf club tonight and she came out with these two gems:

1. After playing on the putting green with David she comes back and says “You can play golf Mummy, you just have to get it in the little hole!!!”

2. Roxy: “I love golf”
Me: “do you?”
Roxy: “No, I love football!!!”

Not her Father’s daughter then!?!
