It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Friday, Friday

Happy Friday to you all, and particularly to me, because this evening I start my holiday, my two weeks off, and I’ll be celebrating by hopping a plane or two to visit my eldest daughter! Whee.

She has a week of fun planned for us — dinners out, meeting her friends, a craft class. She’s an excellent hostess, my daughter… far better, I’m beginning to realize, than her mother. When she visited us last, I did little more than feed and house her. What? The pleasure of our company isn’t sufficient? What more could a person want???

Hm. I feel the bar being raised…

She’s also really good at gift-giving. (Not that I expect gifts while I’m visiting! But it’s sort of related, if you see what I mean.) Her gifts are charming, thoughtful, almost always just that little bit more special than the norm. She’s that kind of woman.

I haven’t yet decided, but it’s possible I won’t be taking my computer, which means that this could be the last post from me for a week. (Mary hits a new blogging peak: She remembers to forewarn readers of her approaching vanishment! Assuming, that is, that after my previous two-month hiatus, there are any readers left…)

  2. Well, when children visit, they’re coming home so there isn’t any need to plan entertainments. Or so I’ve convinced myself. Hope you had a great time (since you won’t be reading this until you get back).

    • Certainly this is true for me – although I do love it when my mum suggests we spend the day out together somewhere or we go for a meal. But I go home to be back in the familiar and hang out with my family and my pets 🙂

  6. Definitely still here, and am eagerly waiting the next installment! Your commentary totally helps with my life – I’m a working mom with a 6 year old boy and 3 year old daughter. Thanks so much!
