the People of Various Sizes (two now bigger than me - Teen Too, at thirteen-and-a-half, has recently had a growth spurt and is now approaching six foot, only three inches off The Teen, his 15-year-old brother - Mini-Teen remains mini) have gone off with their father for a holiday. . .
not just any old holiday, a wonderful holiday
(they'll be having "just" a holiday with me in a few weeks time when we go to Cornwall) in the meantime, their father is taking them here:
and then here*:
(*actually, they are going to a small island off the coast, but I don't know which one so I can't show you an image)
I hope they appreciate it! I think they will, they are - on the whole - good children. . . I'm a bit sad to tell the truth, and altho I thought I'd rabbit on a little I actually find myself on the verge of tears; I realised last night, after they had all left, that I haven't actually been alone in this house for more than 48 hours at one stretch; but, I have no choice about that, so I'm going to make the best of the choice I do have: my perspectve on it
(I'll try very hard)
