A new book.
I am so weak when a lovely new cookbook arrives at work.
Very quiet here tonight.
D has gone to bed.
E has been away camping since Wednesday.
J is out with friends celebrating his girlfriend's birthday.
Z is at a party.
I dread the day when such emptiness in this house is the normal state.
The girls were wearing contrasting attire when they left home for their social activities this week.
E, cosily clad in readiness for the great outdoors.
Z, ready to party the night away in this lovely, but seasonally inappropriate dress. (The party theme was "wear white")
It's freezing outside right now but I'm sure she won't notice. Kids never seem to worry about the weather, certainly not at parties anyway.
