DH has gone back to work today; his eye is miraculously almost fully healed after surgery on Thursday evening.
The young ones are back in school, and are thoroughly enjoying their new teachers.
The big ones - well !
DoomHamster is in the process of renting a flat very close to where she works, which will save her time and expense in travelling each day.
I have been lucky that she has been at home for so long, but I will miss her terribly when she moves to her new home.
Last night she and I were discussing things, and she looked at me and said "Just think, Mum, there will be another Orthodox home being set up !" - which is completely true. She will be given her icon of St Tatiana of Rome from the icon corner here to take with her, and she has a lot of her own icons too.
DD2 has taken the plunge and accepted the offer of a well-paid permanent contract with the legal firm where she did her summer job instead of returning to finish her second year of college course (equivalent of A level).
To be honest, she is lucky to get a full time job at all, let alone a well-paid one in our area. Decent jobs are rarer than hens` teeth here, I 'm sad to say.
The house is peaceful, tranquil and tidy - well, till the young ones get home from school !
Have a blessed day, y'all !
