the end of a long week


five nights away from home
two planned trips home
one unplanned trip home
four concerts
three picnics
unreasonable number of parties
one Giraffe costume
one expedition to shop to buy psychedelic waistcoat
one return expedition to shop to retrieve mobile phone
one saintly younger sister
two emergency visits to camera shops
unknown quantity of champagne
three traffic jams
one speeding ticket?
seven suitcases full of laundry
one amazing sunset

*****

Thank you so much
for all your wonderful messages
over the past week -
it has been such fun to read them
on MrM's Blackberry.
I hope to catch up with all your news
over the weekend.

Like the others have said - now is the time for a holiday methinks!

The champagne sounded good.

The sunset is magnificent.

Goodness me, what a busy time you've had! Ours has been eventful too, though rather less fun - will catch up with you soon.

Umm.... We're going to need for you to elaborate on the Giraffe Costume once you rest up, okay?
