My loves! How are you??? I’m so excited to catch up. We simply obtained residence after two weeks away, the place we noticed my household in Cornwall, England, after which mates in Copenhagen. I’d like to share photographs, in the event you’d wish to see. First up, a moist week in England…
We visited my aunt Lulu, who took care of my grandmother for six years earlier than she died this spring. We’re crossing fingers and toes that we’ll be capable to maintain the household home (we’re ready to see).
It was enjoyable to have the littlest cousins there. Like all good English kids, they’re being indoctrinated to understand milky tea and wet climate.
I didn’t not have child fever. However are you able to blame me? These chubby cheeks! The fantastic e book I’m studying by Irish writer Colin Barrett has a line about kissing a moist cheek: “She kissed him, chastely, on the cheek, the wetness of her pores and skin when she pulled away adhering like a decal to Danny’s pores and skin.” Don’t you recognize precisely what that seems like?
We laughed about all of the phrases used to explain the climate: misting, spitting, drizzling, sprinkling, drumming, hammering, pissing, pouring, bucketing, pelting, teeming, driving, chucking down… it additionally felt like an excellent alternative to show the boys the phrase ‘ominous.’
Nonetheless, they bravely placed on wetsuits and jumped!
Toby and his cousin Bo have been so cute since they have been infants (right here’s slightly slideshow). They’re 4 months aside and look extra like twins yearly.
Youngsters be youngsters, as they are saying, haha.
Since individuals all the time descend like wolves on any meals that seems, my cousin had a professional tip for consuming chips: cover them in a tea mug and nobody will know.
This signal additionally made me snicker — so well mannered!
Lastly, the solar got here out for the final couple days, which was a deal with.
Thanks a lot to my aunts Lulu and Janey for all the time taking such excellent care of us…
We love you, Cornwall. See you subsequent 12 months. xoxoxo
