Sundays are for escaping the city & breathing fresh, green air.

But first there is breakfast – lazy, always with plural cups of tea, all three of us at the table & The Archers omnibus in the background.  Sometimes I make pancakes & we can’t eat them fast enough, so we take turns standing at the cooker while O waves hers around in delight. Everything smells of coffee & maple syrup & the windows fog with condensation & the sky is blue.

In the car, I’m quiet. I look out the window & try not to think about the Monday pushing it’s face up against these precious Sunday hours together.

Sometimes it rains, & I’m sad. It’s ok, he says, & this time he makes the plans and he takes me to run outside in wellies & my impractical but pretty lacy raincoat, with Orla nestled cozy in her pram. & whatever the weather, regardless, Montydog gallops like a miniature pony set free & chases squirrels and finds a stick to carry home.

I always thought Sundays were bleak, & was even a little but scared of them coming around. Now they’re my favourite & my best.

Oh MAN I forgot about that film! Good times watching that on repeat. The end scene in the tent is particularly moving.

I have no idea what you’re talking about, I have no such bedroom ring.

Mama’s girl.
UGH I don’t have to wear that 80s blue engagement ring though right? You just give him the one you have in your bedroom & it’ll all be good. I have SO much insider knowledge on Wills after watching Kate & Will the movie 6 times x

I just told my mum what you said and she said she’ll speak to you tomorrow.

As for Kate, she better hand over that wedding ring cause Wills ain’t going to want her when he sees your mane.
