C flew home this morning, we were all up and dressed and waiting by the window at 7.30am. T went berserk with excitement when the taxi pulled up, and B toddled over pointing a podgy finger and saying “Da, Da, Da, Da”. So lovely. And I have a present, a shiny new iPad with which to write this blog and also keep in touch with everyone once we’re gone. Brilliant. Feel like a smart, sophisticated, technologically savvy woman of the world. Wonder how long that’s going to last.
We’ve got a few people coming round for tea tomorrow to start saying our goodbyes. T wanted to know who one of them, Lisa, was.
“She looks a bit like a mermaid,” I said, “she’s very tall with lovely long, yellow, curly hair all the way down her back.” Pause. “Has she got a tail?”
I texted Lisa, who says that’s the best text message she’s ever had and she’s going to keep it forever.
