This afternoon, on their way from one place to another, my parents dropped in for a cup of tea and a biscuit. They do that a bit; my house is conveniently located for them, plus it contains their grandchildren.
Towards the end of today’s visit, Elspeth expressed a desire to go and stay with her nanny and poppy for a few days. A last minute decision was made, a whirlwind of packing ensued, and off they went, leaving me home with a very tired Evelyn.
Evelyn went to sleep immediately afterwards, and now here I am… effectively alone. I’m not used to this anymore. I really don’t know what to do with myself. I could read, or watch a movie, or study, or sleep. I could eat yummy things without anybody stealing the food from my mouth.
