Two of the five grand daughters had a sleepover here this week.
I can't believe that they are nine now.
They brought paints and brushes with them but only Essie painted.

I love the freedom that the young have when they paint and draw.
She did this without actually looking at the vase.
It sits on the dining table and the look of it has just gone into her memory.
Meanwhile Izzie set the table, dried the dishes and watched a DVD!
It takes all sorts to make the world go round!

" Right, here's how it is, Football's cancelled...not the weather no...bosses say that there's been something big going down in Bethlehem.
So back to Egypt then!"
