My youngest sister, Katy, has come to stay with her two children. Alicia, aged 4 ("I'm nearly 5!!") and Jeremy aged 3. It is all total, joyful chaos (although I wasn't saying that at 6am this morning after getting up twice in the night with the little monkeys.)
I had planned excursions, day trips and all manner of exciting activities. It turns out all Katy wants to do is relax, which is fine by me. This morning we went to the park, then to the shops to buy ice creams and nail varnish. After lunch all us girls painted our nails. Katy and I have drank a lot of tea, watched the Olympics, chatted on the sofa. The kids have played inside, outside, everywhere. Currently, Bella and Alicia are upstairs engrossed in sticker books while Angus and Jeremy are both asleep on the sofa.
Katy is young and trendy. She wears very short shorts and has an iPhone. The above photos were taken with her phone - oh, how I want an iPhone! She has re-tuned the radio in my kitchen to Radio 1. I haven't listened to Radio 1 since I was about 18. Sisters are brutally honest. Me - "Do you think I need more make-up?" Katy - "Yes."
I am loving having her here.
