I'm going to be a bit smug here and feel free to turn your back on me now (but come back soon, I'll miss you all).
My fantastic parents have been to see me today. When I got home from school at lunch time, my dinner was sitting ready for me on the table. Home made red pepper and sweet potato soup with bread to dip in. I went back to school leaving them to wash up. On my return at 3.15, mum had made a shepherd's pie for tea, done all the ironing and hung the wet washing out. Dad had hoovered the house from top to bottom and tidied up.
They are great, my parents, and I consider myself very lucky indeed. Oh, and did I mention pudding? Mum made this for some visitors who couldn't visit her after all. So we had to force it down. It's tough work being a daughter sometimes!
