Tender, will power and bowling.

1. As promised our shoulder of lamb is pull-apart tender. The children eat and eat and eat.

2. We get everyone ready for an outing, open the front door- and it's raining. We nearly turn back but the children need a run-out so we thrust unwilling limbs into rain gear and go out anyway. I would not have had the strength of character to do this if Nick was not at home.

3. Nick bowling a rubber ball to Alec (armed with an undersized cricket bat) in the rain is the most English thing I've seen all year.

  1. That last is so funny! You do have to put up a lot with the wet in England, as I hear.

    And I can so sympathize with that second. Sometimes you just have to team up, tag team, or the thought of taking the kids anywhere - especially out in the mess - seems impossible!
