圣诞杂果蛋糕(christmas cake)

终于都放假了。
好好的睡到自然醒。
醒来时两个孩子已经吃完早餐,在“努力“耕耘他们的电动游戏。
自个儿吃早餐实在不是滋味;要怪只能怪自己迟醒,赖床。
今天送儿子去打网球后,我和女儿去接她的同学,3个女人逛街去。
中午再一起会合,在附近的商场午餐。
后来遇到和我一样在等儿子的妈妈,
就这样我们等了儿子后,一起吃午餐,聊天,再到下午茶。
聊啊聊的,一个下午就这样溜走了。
匆匆的到图书馆借了书就回家。
原来一天是这么的短,还来不及做些什么就傍晚了。
不过偶尔这样无所事事,做些不关紧要的东西,也是一种享受。
不用和时间赛跑,不管晚餐要在几点做好,不理下一个小时要做些什么?
真的觉得很轻松自在。
我,忙碌了一阵,真的就是需要一点这样的生活~无聊
也不知道何时会再上来报道?
以防万一,还是先预祝大家:圣诞快乐,过个平安夜!
