Tonight Jeanette drove me all the way out to Tom and Thea’s school to watch their Christmas Nativity Play. A few weeks ago, when Tristan mentioned that the kids would finish school on the 9th, I realised with horror that I hadn’t helped with their school at all this year, and hadn’t even met their teachers. So Tristan and Blaine kept a seat in the stands for me, and Jeanette drove me there and escorted me in. I played it safe and walked on both crutches for protection of my knees.
It was a sublimely lovely evening, with all the young proud parents, looking out to the sun setting in the west and the candles that the children held as they sang.
