Only twenty-six minutes are left of the day. Where did all the hours go?
I will tell you where it has gone: In tidying up and getting the house ready, in cooking, in driving to the airport, in meeting and greeting, in hugging and laughing, in talking nineteen to the dozen…
Yes, the sun is shining today. Well not really, it’s a cloudy day with laden clouds waiting for just the trigger to burst into tears. But for me it’s as if the sun is shining. The Second Born and his girlfriend are home. He is here after three long years, and for her this is the very first time, to India and to our home.
You must forgive me if I keep it short today. I am exhausted, happily so, and the bed looks so inviting right now. Sleep wins hands down over February Ramblings. Goodnight good folks. See you on Day 5.

Thank you for not missing today in spite of your busy schedule. How lovely to have your son home and for his partner to experience India for the first time. May it be a happy time for all of you.
Thank you, you are so kind. She is relishing her experience so different from her home country 🙂
You are forgiven: having your children home beats all other sources of happiness. Enjoy their visit to the full!
Thank you, Anne 🙂 I totally agree with you 🙂

I know this scene well although our kids come back FAR TOO OFTEN! I’m sure the girlfriend is going to love her visit!
He was unable to come like he usually does every year due to Covid restriction.
My reply got published before I had finished! From Serbia to India has been an almost shocking change for her! But she is really enjoying her visit! 😊

That’s good to know – I’m jealous of her!
