no news is no news
Preoccupation with very time-consuming family cares, plus unphotogenic grey weather, are the main reasons for not posting recently. We are suddenly at the age when we are caught between caring for our parents and caring for our children: that must define middle age, I suppose. Anyway, both generations have been unusually overwhelming in their demands recently, leaving us in the middle feeling rather low and exhausted. Best not to write when one feels like that, I think.
However, it is youngest son’s 4th birthday today, so may have some more cake pictures to post shortly!
