We have had a few rainy days this first week of school holidays. Sometimes you just need to surrender to the chaos and give up the lounge. In this case, every blanket and quilt comes out of hiding. Mysteriously, the chairs disappear from anywhere you might want to sit down. The forts pop up like little shanty towns as the kids try to work out how to balance it all and run to the kitchen for yet more pegs.
If you wait long enough there is even an invite to join them for a tea party inside the fort. As long as I have somewhere perch for a cup of tea, I'm happy.
