After lunch we packed ourselves in the car and paid a long overdue trip to the library. Dave had errands to run first so Benedict, Pip and I made part of our journey on foot. It was only a short walk but it was a lovely piece of uninterrupted talking and listening time with Benedict. Pip was very happy to watch the traffic going by from the comfort of her pushchair!
We brought home a variety of books and during our snack and tea time there was a moment of absolute peace in the house as we all sat reading. It was good to share that time together. Our jolly jack-o-lantern finally got an airing during an our evening meal, an appropriate smiley face at the end of a very happy day!
