The best presents so often cost absolutely nothing
Another 12th of April and another year older. My darling daughter gave me the best ever present. She jumped out of bed at the crack of dawn and tidied the house. She vacuumed, mopped and generally did all the things I hate to do. Then I dragged Xavier off with me, after his father had told him that his present to me was to be my companion on a long walk around the woods and fields. We walked and talked and sketched and Rufus did his hippopotamus impersonation in the muddy puddles. A lovely day so far.
