Last weekend we met up with J-M’s parents in town. We met up on the port and managed to find a table for 4 at a café, despite the Easter weekend tourists. If you’ve never seen someone before, do they turn out like you expect them to? Well J-M’s parents were completely different to what I expected; they looked much younger!
Fortunately we all got along well. J-M’s father collects vintage postcards of the region where he was born and his mother is interested in history, so we all had plenty to talk about – after we’d discussed our wonderful children of course.
Olivier was home for the weekend too - plus washing. The weather was reasonably kind to me and I only needed to iron 4 shirts. He does some of his washing at university. He will probably be home by the end of May. If all goes well he will have his diploma in economics.
I found the time and inspiration to add a new short story to my Still Learning blog, if you’d like to read it.
