Our writing group, on the other hand, is filled with laughter, conversation, delicious food, and, today, key lime martinis! (An early cocktail hour!)
Afterwards, Mum, Rachel and I had luscious massages together, and coffee with little David too, and I went 2nd hand book shopping, and visited dear Martina, Mark, Sara and their brand-new-born-today-darling-David-Jun-Yan! We've just had family dinner - bacon and pea quiche - and I've read to Coco from E. Nesbit's 'The Would-be-goods', which I purchased today, published in 1911, a century ago!
Eowyn, alas alack, has grown out of bedtime stories. She IS an absolute book worm, but only occasionally, when the book is to her liking, will she join Coco and me for bedtime reading. Bens has yet another essay due, having handed one in by midnight last night, and lots of exams coming up.
I return to work tomorrow. I am a little daunted - it has been so very lovely and relaxing lazing around all last week. I want to do more lazing around!! I am feeling sad at the loss of Ronan, and sometimes still achy of tum. Thank you once again for your loving support!
