a cracking time

on a cold, wet, windy easter sunday, hippolyta and i cosyed up in front the fire after lunch and pulled a festive easter cracker...


it was, as always, a happy reunion, if tinged with a touch of sadness in knowing that, this year, we won't be making our usual summer oddyssey to greece...

*sigh*

It was good to see you, coz! I could tell how much you enjoyed my little post-lunch dissertation on Easter eggs: their role in the cultural development of life up the Limpopo, although I couldn't quite work out what you and Hippolyta found so much to giggle at.

I shall miss our chats in Greece this year and I know you are going to find it hard to enjoy a holiday without having me alongside to tell you about the history, geography and social structures of wherever you are.

Hippolyta is always delighted that she and I travel together. I tried to comfort her distress at your parting last night and pointed out that she would always have my company while you would only have Brian and David's. As she said "some people have all the luck".

Let's hope that you have her luck next year and that we are back in Greece together in 2015!

Hippolyta not joining you in Greece this summer (to say nothing of Roger and Sheila)! It's a tragedy of Greek proportions.
