Hostipal Tomorrow I am going to have an operation in hostipal(as pronounced by my children as they grew up - so now part of our vocab). +ve: 36 hours of peace (relative), time to lie around and read, no more ugly legs, 2 new novels to read. -ve: I miss the girl's dance concert, terribly ugly stockings need to be worn for 6 weeks, need to organise people to take kids to 'end of year' events, I will miss the last weeks of learning/teaching in my classroom. :(
When I was one I was just begun When I was two I was nearly new When I was three I was nearly me When I was four I was that much more When I was five I was just alive Now that I'm six I'm as clever as clever I think I'll stay six for ever and ever. A.A. Milne
But this is just not so I regret.
My baby has turned 7.
We visited Coney Island, at Luna Park, to celebrate.
There were giant slides.
A spinning disc.
A mirror maze.
And inappropriate sideshow features. I'm glad I wasn't asked to explain this one!
Monstera Deliciosa My delicious monsters have begun to flower this year. I have never seen them so so before. Maybe it is the extra bit of rain we have had this year. Maybe they have matured. Maybe they are just happy!
