Can you feel it?

It’s Friday!

Of course in reality it’s like any other day around here, full of school runs, grey skies, laundry and lunch-boxes. But I do love the feeling that for two days things are about to change.

Sometimes I try and work out why the anticipation of change brings me such joy, after all, the change comes with more activities, running about and five other people wanting to be fed on a near continuous basis. I think it must be having them all about, but beyond that I won’t delve as I might talk myself out of this feeling!

J gifted me an extra wave of love this morning. We were driving up a narrow hill near her school and I had to slow the car and wait for a woman and her two children to pass us. J looked out the window and said, “Mummy, she’s got a girl and a boy.” I nodded as J watched them, “That’s only half of us, you’ve got two boys and two girls.” I nodded again and smiled at her, “You’re so lucky, Mummy!”

Yes I am!

Well, yes, but do BOTH of you still have a working oven? She might catch up.

What are s'mores!?! Dear God. How did you people manage an empire?


Take 2 graham crackers. Place a piece of Hershey's Bar on bottom cracker. Roast one marshmallow to golder brown perfection over a campfire. Place on top of chocolate. Top off with second cracker.
