The parents go out and play

Well, the parents have a burger and a beer then spend the evening griping at Eurovision, but same difference. 

On the way back from his scout camp, Bean tripped over a tree root while playing and did a running superman wipeout that ended up with him badly spraining his ankle. X-rays don’t seem to show anything broken, but he can’t walk on it so as a precaution, they gave him a plaster splint. Right now, he’s hobbling on rainbow-colored crutches, generally being in good spirits, but enjoying the extra attention :)

Katy loves the Swiss scouts. She keeps saying “my brownies were never this fun. All we ever did was play rounders”. It should be noted that, besides his last-minute injury, Bean enjoyed his camping trip and it was the first time in a looong time that the St-George camping weekend didn’t get rained on :)

Had to be split over 2 days because we got too tired last night…

We did manage to sneak in some shopping, some cocktails 🍷 and a movie 🎦 though.

Would you walk up the hill again? Yes, for gin, lesbians and puppy dogs.

We wanted to go to Les Brasseurs to get the burgers 🍔 and beer 🍻 that we missed out on last night before we picked up Ben from his scout camp. Turns out there was a bike rally in town that closed off most of the roads where we wanted to go. That was a big bust…

Ever adaptable, we went to have some perfectly satisfactory tempura 🍤, calamari and ramen 🍜 (for me) and sushi rolls 🍥 (for Katy).

Even polar bear enjoyed a nice pot of jasmine tea. (Polar bear came along because, as Katy said, the fact that she was having a shit mental health daily didn’t mean he couldn’t have a good time.)

Bean is on his first camping trip with scouts. We are on our own until tomorrow afternoon. What does Katy do? Snuggle under snowman blankie cuddling polar bear… Oy.
