Hi, hi, I know it's a bit late, but have you the time for a cuppa?
You have? Excellent.
How are things with you?
Here, we are looking at one more week of summer holiday before the adventure that is Year 2 begins for The Boy Child. He's ready. I know I am!
I have one more adventure up my sleeve. We are off to York tomorrow in order to visit the National railway Museum and see Mallard. What's that? You don't know who or what Mallard is? She's a steam train and still holds the world record for the fastest speed of a steam train. She reached 126 mph back in 1938. Sorry, The Boy Child's enthusiasm for all things locomotive has rubbed off on me.
I've still lots to do this evening, so do forgive me if I begin to potter about. I've sent the boys out with the pooch so that you and I could have five minutes to ourselves. We're probably safe for another 15 minutes or so. Do you have a dog? Any other pets? Our pooch is such an integral part of our family, it's hard to imagine life without him. We were able to meet an 8-week-old Labradoodle puppy this afternoon. He belongs to friends of ours. And his cuteness is almost enough to make me want another pooch in the family.
I can hear the boys at the gate. You're going to go? Well, thanks so much for dropping by and do come again soon ... during the day when we'll have more time.
There might even be cake.
