Parenting, rainbow and mellow.

1. My mother comes and takes us all away so I can be ill in comfort and security.

2. "Look, look a rainbow!" says the mother. She lifts Alec up to the window and even fields his questions about why it's there. It's a really good one -- complete and bright against a wet slate sky over bare hazel trees coloured gold by the sun. I wonder if it will be the first rainbow that he remembers.

3. I am feeling mellow because I am too tired to be firm with anyone. I am too tired to do anything but nurse the children and rest quietly.

  1. Ah, that second one is my favorite, so poetic!
