An Empty House

Oh dear, it is far too quiet here tonight. Donny and Mel have gone off on an adventure weekend with the school. We packed up everything last night into two small rucksacks. I left them at school this morning clutching their sleeping bags and a packed lunch. Pretty much the whole class is going and they were all as high as kites in anticipation.

It sounds like a fantastic weekend. They get to stay in a hostel in big dormitories. There is kayaking and climbing, abseiling and an assault course. They were told to bring a 'black bin-bag' to put their wet and muddy clothes in. It sounds like it is going to be a riot. I want to go too!

Here at home it is very quiet, with only the two smaller girls. Saskia has offered to 'tidy' Donny's room, which I suspect means she is missing her big sister already. I dread to think what Donny will make of Saskia's efforts in her bedroom domain. [Cue for a song? There may be trouble ahead...]


  1. Ah to go from house full to house quiet! Must make your head spin! lol Morgan got Idonea's postcard and is planning to write her back very soon. She has actually started it a couple of times but it keeps getting misplaced! I will have her get it in the mail hopefully Monday! Have a great weekend!

  2. Donny will be thrilled to get a letter. It is pouring with rain today - Donny and Mel must be soaked doing their outdoor activities. How are you feeling? Better I hope.
