Well there's nothing like a busy week back at work & home to make a girl forget all about her holiday in a hurry!
Hurray for long weekends then.
Even if the weather isn't looking fabulous.
Quite possibly a good thing, as Eva & I have lots of 'crafty' things to make for her upcoming school fair, so if it's a little wet, so much the better.
Speaking of Eva, she's had an interesting week at school, with 'sexuality road' classes.
Conversation around the dinner table has been most entertaining.
She was quite excited to learn that no, her mother hadn't yet been through menopause, because that would mean that I could have another baby after all. (Oh, great idea.)
And Brunnel nearly choked when out of the blue, her serious voice enquired if he'd ever had a wet dream. Let alone her anatomical drawing which included terms for all those boy bits which included 'hairy potatoes' and other salubrious names.
Those nine year olds grow up fast these days!
Changing the subject then, my first peony of the season. No, of course I didn't grow it!
I bought one for the store.
Aren't they so impossibly beautiful?
All tight little buds at first, and then opening to a mass of feathery petals,
gradually changing colour each day.
How to make a girl happy? Buy her a peony!
Have a lovely weekend.
