I’m back and we survived… more tonight with pics.
In the mean time, a little update of how I am going in teaching the Devil Child about the complicated things in life…
Hannah: [Staring pensively out the window at the sky] Mum, what do clouds feel like?
Nikki: Uhhhh… [mutters] fecking hell! Errrrmmm… *sees another selling point for the iphone – I would’ve killed for access to google at that point* Well, clouds are made from water vapour so uh, I guess they feel cold. And wet. Yeah, cold and wet.
Hannah: [Looks at me blankly]
Nikki: Hannah, we’ve talked about how clouds are made right? Do you remember about evaporation?
Hannah: [Another blank look]
Dan* pipes up: They feel like marshmellows.
Hannah: Oh cool! Marshmellows!
Nikki: [Shakes her head with despondency]
*Dan is the friend I went to the snow with.
