The Brainy One works for himself.
Which can be a mixed blessing, as his office is at the top of our house.
But occasionally, having him home mid-morning is ideal.
Tea for two and a plate of homemade scones.
An unexpected hour together at the garden table.
A lovely way to start the week.
My overseas friends tell me that elevenses is a peculiarly British thing, but one that they are happy to embrace.
