Other than seeing my family, my absolute favourite part of coming back to Mum and Dad's for the holidays is seeing E.Hales and Doodle. We text pretty much everyday, and we skype when we can, but nothing compares to a catch-up over coffee (or tea in my case) with her and the sound of Doodle's voice saying "Auntie Vicki", often followed by a run-and-hug.
Today, we did spinning.
First note to self: don't engage in any activity with the kid that I don't want to be doing for the rest of the afternoon!
I picked Doodle up once and spun him round.
"Again, Auntie Vicki! Please!"
So I did. You try and say "no" to his smile. And "Auntie Vicki" - I can't say "no" when he "Auntie-s" me!
And hello blood sugar of 2.8mmol when I got back to Mum and Dad's!
Second note to self: reduce insulin when spinning is the kid's game of choice!
