It’s all going to plan so far. It was so good to see Kavitha and family, and Sam and Zerlina, though they don’t see each other often, got on with each other immediately. Sami is about 9 months older than Z.
It was 6.30 when we arrived back here so I cracked on with making pancakes – Gus had had some at his childminder’s, but Z hadn’t had any yet. I put out lemons, sugar, golden syrup and Nutella. I’ve always been something of a pancake purist, sticking normally to the lemon juice and sugar combo, but I tried spreading one with Nutella. Darlings, it was heaven. I went all Harry Met Sally with my squeals and groans of delight, to the high amusement of the children. I’d barely calmed down when Roses popped through – I’d had a couple of crates of wine delivered and Lawrence kindly carried them through for me. I was down to my last 7 bottles of red, it was high time to stock up.
Lawrence recommended Nutella and banana, so I had to try that too. More squeals of gustatory joy, I have to confess. Yet, after the children were in bed, I ferreted around for something non-sweet but not too filling and finally had to resort to black coffee and Twiglets. Bacon for breakfast tomorrow, I think.
