An impromptu evening round the iPad

Last night a couple of Chloe’s girlfriends decided to come over to see her one last time before Japan. This morphed, as these things tend to do, into seven 20-somethings for supper. 😀 I love it! There was so much talk and laughter, nice…

Here we are at home watching the Oscars. My girls and I. The Oscars have their red carpet, but we have our red light. And the ladies at the Oscars have some stiff dress competition with our gown and bling. And we, super healthy…

Spring garden clean up. The harsh and not so pretty truth.
