Yesterday

I have an announcement to make. Yaya is leaving for greener pastures… He’s off to Australia with his little sister on Sunday (and mother, of course) so yesterday, Danda and I headed over to spend the afternoon and evening with them, which looked like this….

Most important thing first. Let’s unpack the Lego set and get building.

Isla grabs the stickers and she’s happy.

Yaya and I with our serious faces on, trying to figure out the 43-stage instructions for the Batmobile.

In the meantime, Danda keeps Isla happy by drawing Winnie the Pooh.

After a good hour or so and a lot of intense concentration, Yaya completes the Batmobile! I didn’t help putting it together. I was more like on-hand Lego-peice-finder and instruction-book-page-turner.

Yaya playing with the Lego he made.

Out for dinner and Isla is proudly wearing the Supergirl hat that Dad drew for her.

My warm goats cheese and roast veg salad with chicken. Those little bread thingies round the edge were so good.

Yaya’s version of a smile.

Isla mixing her babyccino and icecream together then spooning some of it into her icecream cone, which then drips out of the bottom.

Room On The Broom with Danda. They were told to lie in bed to listen to the story but there was too much to see in the book so they slowly crept over and were all huddled together listening.

When we had decided it was sleep time, Isla and Yaya and I had a little chat about how I wouldn’t see them again before they go on the  ‘big ellaflane’ to ‘Stralia’ so I’ll see them in a little while when I come over for a holiday.

“Are you coming on the ellaflane with us?” Isla asked.

“No. You’re going on the aeroplane first, on Sunday,” I replied. “I’m coming later.”

“On Monday?” Yaya asked.

“I’ve got to go to work on Monday,” I said, doing a sad face. “It will have to be after Monday. Maybe in a few more weeks.”

I know,” said Yaya, his eyes lighting up. “Come on Tuesday! You should come on Tuesday, Lauwa.”

“Ok, Yaya. Tuesday sounds good. I think I’ve got a day off so that will be fine.”

They both puckered up, ready for a kiss goodnight and Yaya assured me that they would telephone me on the computer from ‘Stralia’. After a brief chat with Isla about how she loves ‘nakes’ and that there are loads of massive ‘nakes’ in ‘Stralia’, it was goodnight time.

  2. Love, love, love this post. When my nephews come over they do the exact same thing and start by pulling the Legos out straight away. They also wear Angry Bird shirts like the one Yaya has on ;] I love how serious Danda looks about sketching Winnie and how serious you look about the Batmobile ;]

  3. OH LLM!!! I missed all this while I was on vacation! Such cute darlings! How are they doing in ‘Stralia?

    I’ve never seen a picture of Danda before, he’s a looker!

    • Haha. I told Danda what you said and he went, “That is true actually. I look at stuff all the time.” Always the joker… If the photos are anything to go by, Yaya and co are having a lovely time. Lots of playing outside in the sun and petting animals at the zoo and running about on the beach. All the reasons they moved over there, I guess.
