Can’t believe I haven’t done a blog post since last week! I have composed so many posts in my head and now I have so much to say, but then it will be 5 pages long, so I’ll just share some shopping mall experiences and then come back later for photo and video shares!
I have been spending a lot of time in meetings in coffee shops this week, so I’ve seen some funny stuff. But my 2 favourite things are:
1. Walking behind me yesterday I hear: “I didn’t spend that money and when I prove it you will make our tea for 3 nights in a row”. I thought Huh? and turned around to look. A very, very old couple having a friendly go at each other. Scary thing is I can see husband and myself doing the same thing in about 50 (OK, made that 40) years’ time. Very sweet!
2. A young couple with a newborn come to sit next to me at the Mugg & Bean. The Mom had baby in a sling and was looking pale and a little tired (ring a bell?). She then took baby out and was holding her. And they weren’t talking to each other, just shared a muffin and had some coffee and was staring at the baby. And I mean Staring. I was puzzled and of course my imagination ran amok wondering what could possibly be wrong with this little person. Until I realised they were staring at their baby in total AWE. They couldn’t stop staring and touching the baby. How sweet is that? I sometimes wonder if I did enough baby-gazing when my kids were babies. But you probably never can. And there are so many things I wanted to tell them, but then I would have sounded like one of those psycho shopping-mall-strangers, so I just kept quiet and smiled sweetly.
Gotta run, my Dad’s in hospital for a small procedure so I have left the kids at school later so I can pop in and visit him.
Hope everyone is doing well, will come back to read blogs later!
