|1964, Westcliff-On-Sea. I am the toddler.|
It rained again this week. The weather turned from summer to definite autumn, even on sunny days. Finally, finally, at the beginning of November I can no longer wear sleeveless tops and sandals. This is a good thing. The hot weather slows you down. And it's lovely to sleep snuggled under the duvet.
I've almost finished two weeks of no sugar. It's already made a difference. Update on Sunday.
The best year
I asked DD how's she's doing in her school lessons and she said it's much easier this year because she can read better. Then she added, "I think 3rd grade is going to be the best year so far."
The Half Blood Prince
We are 100 pages into the 6th Harry Potter and this is also the best so far. It's getting darker and more brutal. We're loving it. (Of course I've read all the books before but I don't remember the details of each book).

My cousin Susie found this picture of us from about 1964. It was the day of the parade in Westcliff. Our Grandparents lived on Chalkwell Avenue and it was a hightlight of the year to visit them and watch the parade go right past their house. Susie's brother Philip is standing on the wall (see the full photo above). Happy Days.
I'm linking up with R2BC wich is back with Mummy from the Heart this month.
