Gentle Easter Saturday

Today it rained and rained. I had a long afternoon sleep (after only managing to clock up four hours last night) while Big-P took Amelia shopping for a new Charlie and Lola book. They came home pink-cheeked and cheerful and made pizza together for dinner. There was flour and mess everywhere, but no matter – some kind of fresh domestic harmony has set in these last few days and life feels good. The pizza was great.
