Woke up early (oh, jet lag), about 5am. Dad was already awake and up. Sister and nephew got up around 0630.
Nephew played for a while, then I helped feed him breakfast. We had some time constraints: Mum and Dad needed to leave for a meeting by 0830, we had to get the dog her walk before then, and my sister had a business conference call from home at 0830.
We managed all of that, then I took care of the nephew by myself. We went for a wander, which consisted of him naming everything he saw (including the basket ball hoop, which he is able to call "baskt ball", e in basket missing on purpose).
After my sister finished her call, the three of us hopped into the car and went into town. We walked around a couple of shops (including buying the nephew some cute clothes), then went up to a bakery for lunch. Nephew had ham for the first time and enjoyed it. While at the bakery I also bought a pie. In retrospect, I should have bought two pies. Between me and Dad and my brother-in-law, pies do not hang around for very long.
We then headed home and chilled out for a while. The nephew went down for a long nap, lucky guy. Mum and Dad got back from their meeting and the five of us (Mum, Dad, sister, nephew, me) took the dog for her second walk of the day. They hung aroung outside afterwards while I had my own nap.
Dinner, help feed nephew, nephew took bath, quiet evening. Saturday: dinner out in evening, a bit of running around in the morning. Sunday: hike in the morning, family dinner later. Monday: Mum and Dad have another meeting in the morning while I take care of nephew again. Nothing else planned - so far!
Relaxation rules! But not as much as nephew....
