I went out this morning without my children. I did miss them, but relished being able to 'nip' into places easily and I listened to the serial on Womans Hour in full, something I have been trying to manage all week.
In the opticians, a boy had arrived with his dad to collect his glasses. His smile when he put them on was heart-warming. "Thats better", he grinned and his Dad breathed a sigh of relief.
We are going out tonight and leave Gan Gan in charge. I am excited about getting dressed up and seeing old friends.
