The bouncy ball in our garden is much appreciated by the LiveWires and is anticipated for much of the journey here. I love how her curls look like a lion’s mane as she bounces!
LiveWire no 4 presented me with a bunch of daisies, collected en route, which revived by tea time, given a good long drink.
B brought her garden trophies in to show us – a spiky poppy and a yellow flower which she was pleased to hear was a Begonia called Million Kisses! We have lots of them in the garden this year to make golden splashes all over the place to mark our Golden Wedding later this Summer.
We love walking to school with the children. Some of the best conversations are had on these journeys. It is also lovely to see them striding out with such confidence.
I love being able to plait hair again! When LiveWire T’s Mum was little she used to insist on an odd number of plaits and each one had to have a different coloured ribbon – sometimes seven plaits and all the colours of the rainbow.
Alter Ego – two silver plated objects, one flattened by a 250 ton press, hanging on threads. Cornelia ParkerDetail from Swell by Sara Dodd. So delicate and made of porcelain, looking like sheets of filo pastry.
I could keep posting for ever tonight!
On our walk this afternoon, J, LiveWire2, was on a mission to find beautiful things for me. First was this tiny feather which he held very carefully so that it didn’t blow away.
Here we about to cross the Tamar into England across the Brunel Bridge on our way to visit the London branch of the family.
Boris is a very beautiful cat who looks like a Colourpoint Longhair but who really is just a moggy as his label declares. His little sister, Bob, is black and sleek and very purry, especially at story time.
Happily, both Grandbabies woke up in time for a last photo before I left early this morning.
