Today I had one of the most lovely afternoons ever. Right here in my very ordinary neighbourhood.

I asked Chicky Babe and Bek if they would like to come for a walk down to the local coffee shop to help me boost my exercise for the day. I bribed them with a milkshake or whatever they wanted. To my surprise they said yes!
We sat for over 2 hours chatting and chatting and chatting. The weather was perfect and the company delightful! Bek was surprised that I would sit and chat seriously about Dr Who (I also have a Geeky side!) she couldn't imagine her parents doing that!
Truly what more could you wish for in a perfect afternoon than spending lovely time with your almost 18year old daughter and 'adopted' daughter!

They're growing up, that's what's happened. They are 'real people' now, and that's such a nice thing!!!

Hello little sparrow,

I enjoy the photo-goodness you have on display!
Happy blogging you! x x x

How nice! I look forward to having the same sort of relationship with my own daughters as they grow older - a friendship :)

Dette - thanks so much for your comment on my blog re: The Guilt Monster. Your advice was exactly what I needed to hear and precisly (spelling!?) why I love blogging. Thanks again x
