Just a quick post to update on stress. I'm feeling quite a bit better. I got two and a half hours alone in the house writing yesterday. Dani is wonderful!
The kids have been out playing in the street this morning. They have a foam plank on a rope, which they tie to the upstairs front window and swing to each other. The neighbour (who is a prison inspector) says that it is like the swingers that prisoner use to pass things between cells! But, they are getting looks from someone working on a house up the road.
Allie: "I expect he's just wondering why you're not in school."
Pearl: "Because we've got better things to do!"
I'll do a proper update later, maybe, if I don't get seduced back into a story...
