Morning all, Not a good night. Too many aches and pains despite dosing myself up.
Lovely sunny morning here. Have already had a walk round the garden and the grass is covered in dew. This type of weather always reminds me of new pencils and the smell of newly varnished school halls.
I've cleaned the kitchen windows and done a bit of tidying up but nothing major planned.
Really missing grandaughters, Merri phoned last night to say she is missing us, I wanted to book a flight there and then. Have been speaking on the phone and facetiming but it's not the same as a cuddle. I don't think Firstborn will be allowed to go away for a month again. Don't know how those of you with families living abroad manage, it must be very hard to say goodbye after a visit. Good job I've got Jonah to cuddle while they are away.
DD glad you and Charlie are OK, just remember every little step takes you closer to your new life.
