Recipe for contentment

Take two children

Add two school mates plus assorted small siblings

Release in garden with 1 sandpit, 2 swings, 1 tractor, 1 car, several lorries and a paddling pool

Permit the removal of clothes
Turn on the hose

Then take three mums – one Brit, one American and one German
Add coffee, juice and homemade rhubarb cake
Place on outdoor sofas under a shady awning in a spacious garden in a warm climate

Mix well and leave for two and a half hours

Ahhh – a very nice afternoon


  1. You're so funny! Sounds great!

  2. Sounds idyllic. A bit different from our "Mummy and baby" get-togethers at your flat in Dunbar, eh? (I drove along Castle St yesterday and thought of you...)
