Project of the Faux Long Weekend
It was REALLY hot on the weekend wasn't it. Some (us) would say too hot to do anything except maybe lie by the pool with a Pimms or hide inside watching the tennis with the aircon. Unless of course you have a house full of kids who need to be entertained. In which case you would have been more likely to find yourself splashing madly in some kind of water, regularly feeding small people frozen iced treats and trying to come up with something that is as mind numbingly simple for you to organise and as it is distracting for the small people. My suggestion - bead stringing. Good for at least an hour of heads down action selecting and stringing with an added 1/2 hour entertainment bonus for prancing about house in dress up mode checking out new finery in all available reflective surfaces.
Highly recommended. BECK
