no the inner child isn’t back. this is the outer adult typing with her left hand. b.a. sleeps long and late as befits a brain cancer survivor. my new laptop has a touchscreen though so I’ll try using that too.
one of the reasons children have so much energy and cheer must be all their sleep. man, to think I could get a start on the morning without a cup of coffee for over 20 years. I even worked in a coffee shop as a teen without developing the habit. hmm. what if I went back to living like a child, with work as school but no piano lessons. couldn’t face that again. back to ballet! what a hoot that would be.
b.a. and I have both lost weight since Christmas thanks to Lent, the exercise bike and outdoor walks. but on our recent stay by the seaside we ate delicious French pastries from our favourite bakery. twice-baked almond croissants, pains-au-chocolat, chocolate and pistachio ‘escargots’ … nom nom nom. Fortunately we were not greedy about this and averaged just one pastry each every second day. I just checked the scales and I didn’t gain a pound, so yay! (the 6 hour hikes may have had something to do with that.)
