We are past the half way point....Second Son will be back at Planet Hartwell in three weeks. I'm coping better than I did the first couple of weeks, but I miss him desperately....he's my constant companion and offsider, as well as the only member of Planet Hartwell to share my taste in television.
With firstborn splitting his time between school/band/work, he's hardly ever at home and when he is, he's in his room doing homework or sleeping. Second son, on the other hand is happy to watch hours of River Cottage with me, while we discuss the finer points of cooking organic snails. He's good company. And I could use some at the moment....I managed to trip over an uneven bit of pavement last Thursday which has given me an ankle the size of a grapefruit and the colour of a plum, which has restricted my walking to hobbling. I'm still working, but in between shifts I'm confined to the couch with an icepack. I need entertainment!!
