the Engineer has just gone to England for two days for work so I’m on my own with Froglet for the first time – two nights! Hope he’s going to be ok, he’s used to seeing his dad before bed every night. Hopefully that isn’t the one thing that tells him it’s bedtime!

A good night’s sleep
All my shopping is coming today
I have plenty to read while Dan is away

Just finished “The children of Green Knowe” and really enjoyed it. I’ll be getting the next one in the series at some point. Mrs B you were asking about children’s book series, I like this one but I don’t know that there is so much in it beyond a good story. At least not in the first book. The author is Lucy M. Boston.
