Let me start by saying, please people, let spontaneity into your life.
Go out on a whim.
Do first what pops into your mind.
Follow through with something unplanned.
Throw the rule book out the window.
I am not saying to be careless, reckless or stupid. I am saying to let yourself go where the wind takes you.
Where the fun takes you.
Or as was our case tonight, where the pancakes take you.
Now let me also say people, be mindful of intention. Your thoughts create and make your world. So when you are speaking to your partner and saying things like “I feel like pancakes,” from as far back as weeks and weeks ago, be prepared for ‘said pancakes’ to come very suddenly, unexpectedly and surprisingly into your life.
Do not reject the pancakes because you didn’t plan their arrival properly. Run with the pancakes, frolic with the pancakes, and even do a Usain Bolt with the pancakes.
Just go with it.
Tonight we had a function on the other side of town. We left at 11pm, and even though it was late, and baby girl would inevitably end up asleep on the car drive home, at that moment when the thought came into my head, she and Hubbie were laughing up a storm and mucking about to no end.
“What if we go to Pancake Parlour?” I said to him, testing.
“Yeah, I could go some pancakes,” was his easy response.
SOLD. 25 minutes later, still on our way home, we detoured in Doncaster to a 24-hour pancake operation, where the premises were FULL at midnight.
And here we were strolling in all dressed up with our 4 year-old like
“SHOW ME THE PANCAKES!”
My pancake craving and midnight sweet tooth was satisfied by the Pancake medley which contained 4 mini stacks of different pancake combinations, while baby girl ate all the ice cream off her stack, before mixing jam into every possible pancake combination of ours.
And just like that, a kind of ordinary day, turned into a fun and extraordinary night.
Pancakes at midnight.
P.S to my girls… let this be our next catch up. It’s been a while since our last ‘Hot Balls.’
The End 🙂
