Strange Beasts Take up Residence in the Shed

Laying the eggs for bookworms?
 Last night one of the three most beautiful women in the world sashayed into the shed to stay the night, bringing with her three strange beasts, one of which took residence on my wall, impervious to a good swatting with a rolled-up newspaper. Could it have anything to do with the fact that it's made of coconut shell?
On the wall and staying there. 

I have commissioned at least three of these ladybirds and plan to have them beetling across the wall, like the plaster ducks that used to be so popular in times gone by. I seem to remember that in Coronation Street the Ogdens had a set of them flying across their parlour "muriel". I have now taken delivery of the green one; the red one is the artist's and resides in her bedroom. As the supply of raw materials depends on someone else's ice-cream eating habits, the collection will, I feel, grow slowly.

Breakfast for the excessively
sweet-toothed
It is always a pleasure to spend time with your children, especially as they grow older and have their own interests, circles of friends etc. (see my previous blog  All I have is a photograph). We chatted for a while and then went off to sleep.

The following morning, bright and late, we went out and walked to the metro station where my daughter took the train back home to study for next week's exams.

It was a brief visit (at least it spurred me into cleaning the bathroom!) but we both enjoyed the time together and I'm looking forward to seeing her again in the next few days.
