I spent the evening with both daughters and delightful granddaughter, though she was in bed by 7pm. We ate Chinese takeaway and watched a movie before toddling off to bed at 9.30. We all figured the New Year would be there for us in the morning and it was!
Daughter2 flew back to Perth this evening, and it will be the end of February before we see her again. It is nice to have met her lovely Beau and to know that she has a supportive partner with her across the other side of the country. He told D2 that he liked her Mum (moi!) and she asked “Why” which may have been a dangerous question. His reply?
“You family is crazy, but your Mum just bubbles along on top of it all!”
I am taking it as a compliment!
