"Those nails make you look like a giiiiirl!"...
It was a super weekend for Nikki, Mark and I; we stayed down in a lovely village called Storgursey in Somerset with Kim. Kim's house and garden are quite beautiful and it put in mind of an idyllic French farm house. On Sunday Kim's two lovely children, Molly and Lucy, joined us. Molly is 9 and Lucy is 5 and so within a very short time I was making arts and crafts men out of bits from the garden and the kitchen, blowing bubbles, bouncing on the trampoline and having my finger nails painted bright purple. Playing with the kids made me feel very paternal. And, I don't mind saying, more than a little bit broody. I'd love to have kids.
