I am so looking forward to the next week - with some trepidation! We have a young French Exchange student coming to stay - not the first time this has happened, but it's a few years since it has. I am off to sort out the spare room so that it looks less like a LYS and more like a bedroom. They have lots of lovely day trips planned - Stratford, The Black Country Museum, The Bullring and Mailbox, Cadbury World - and - if he would like to, we plan a day trip to London on the train on Saturday - DH wants to take him to see Shrewsbury Town play football - we'll see which appeals to him most!
Finally, yesterday was Mothering Sunday. I was very lucky, my eldest gave me some lovely Lush goodies, DD bought me some M&S vouchers, and my youngest bought me Robbie Fowler's autobiography - an essential read! - and I also had some beautiful flowers. Once again time to reflect just how lucky I am and how little I really need in life. We went out for an Indian last night, DD having been at work during the day, I had slept off a night shift, and we walked home in the snow. What a perfect way to end this reflective weekend.
