On the first day Benedict was his usual around in the evening at 10:00 pm but by last night and tonight as I write he is asleep by 8:15 pm!!! Which is usually unheard of unless he was sickening for something. This is what Benedict has missed being out of the school system and although we know there is not much we can do about the situation for the time being, we are all enjoying this period of respite and change.
Benedict trying to convince me he really is not tired but as you can see his attempting to keep his eyes open! He almost fell asleep in his tea!
She played with babies today but yesterday she was Pirate Pip, terror of the seas! And yes she is minus those two front teeth and lisps delightfully. The teeth have cut through the gum so just wondering if they'll be in place by the 10th September?!
Today after dropping the kids off at school, Dave worked in the workshop and I prepped tea and then had some prayer time upstairs which has been sorely lacking. We also had lunch at The Gatehouse but they have changed hands and the food was not its usual standard. We tried to be upbeat and talked about the fact that staff were in employment there and the importance of work in this current climate but still it was a sad moment when we remembered special occasions; we had our 21st wedding anniversary lunch there and Dave had arranged for a bouquet of flowers to be left at our table, I was pregnant with Pip at the time and Kathryn had her first evening out there with Sara after having had Mary Grace. We won't be going back any time soon:
Decaf Latte Time.
Pork and apple ciabatta.
Broccoli and Stilton Soup.
