Yeah right, on what planet would that be ??
A BBQ, swimming, games of table tennis, some good old Aussie Summer fun. Not at all unusual in the Crafty household. But for some reason (I am still unsure as to why the idea materialised in my thoughts) I mentioned to the boys the "F" word ! Yes that's right, I without thinking it through properly, told the boys to invite "FRIENDS"...................
Extra kids, am I crazy ?? Absolutely !! Completely !! Without question !!
Of course inviting one friend each (remember I have four sons) is never enough, oh no ! All the Toms, Dicks and Harry's must be invited, I mean really, who are we to pick and choose who we invite into our home ? The more the merrier, right ?
It started out with an extra two (not so bad) then another (oh OK, I can handle that) then another two, or was that three ? Oh heck I honestly don't know. All I do know is, we had a house full .......
It was fun (I love a good get together) it was noisy (a house full of teenage boys) Mr Crafty and I were kept on our toes.....
- 40 sausages
- 4 loaves of bread
- A mountain of sauce
- And more drink on the floor then in cups
We had a constant line up of hungry boys in the kitchen, a multitude of PS3 players competing against each other on some car game
It made me smile, my boys were happy, and that is all that matters in my world. Laughter filling my home is music to my ears.
They stayed, ALL of them, overnight !!
Have I learnt my lesson ??
Of course not.
It may be a lot of work, but in the end its all worth the effort to make memories for my boys.
