Away for the holidays

Today was exhausting. We grownups packed everything together and loaded the cars. It's like a move, even if it is only for two weeks. Then my mother fed the Little One, we ate lunch and finally we started the long trip to my parents' home.

We had agreed on stopping points beforehand and it worked well. We drove fairly slow because we wanted to stay together and because my new car still needs breaking-in. All in all we made four breaks and therefore we needed a bit more than four hours. But only three and a half hours pure driving time and we never exceeded 120 km/h. I only used an average of 5 l/100km. I'm very satisfied with that. Of course we were exhausted as we arrived.

The Little One was rather grumpy after the long trip. But only the last hour was problematic. The first hour he slept, the other two he spent watching the scenery. Now in the evening he wanted to catch up on all the playing he had missed; there was no stopping him. But after his dinner he fell into sleep like a stone.

My books I had ordered from Amazon have arrived. But they can wait until tomorrow. I'm tired and want to go to bed early.
