Saturday dawned and my lovely friend brought her brood over so we could all have lunch. We had a grand catch-up with news and the children settled happily to play in my new home. On the way over one of the girls asked their Mum if I still lived in England! With their Mum’s permission the picture shows the girls modelling their lovely pressie for me….I will smile every time I do the washing-up. We had such fun and the walls bounced back the sound of happy noise and laughter and whilst they were here the post lady delivered a parcel from my Mum and a very funny card from my sister.
It is two years since I helped to look after the girls and their patient brother and I am so grateful that the strands of love and friendship still hum with this special song.
I pottered around afterwards and looked at the flowers their lovely Mum had brought, the fabulous washing up gloves, ate one of their gifted chocolate reindeers, put on the waterfall cardi my Mum had sent and laughed at my sister’s card.
Love and thought threaded through a special day and all is well.
