A dull and dreary day at the cottage. Not helped that all three children have trooped back to school today. I miss having them under my feet. It’s too quiet. Where is the sound of
squabbling irrepressible giggles from downstairs?
I’m not sure the fridge light is working. I can’t see it anymore when I open the door. There are cartons of juice and a bowl of tomatoes blocking my view. Sigh. Another sign that the children are elsewhere. The fridge has not emptied within minutes of them waking.
