The night of the exes
my ma and my gal and me. And some dogs
In haste. For some reason thought I'd have loads of blogging time in Zambia. But. I don't.
So. I'm in Zambia for a couple of weeks. Me and the baby gal. The baby gal and I. And peculiarly my mother and my sister and my father are all in the same place at the same time. Which usually happens like... well... twice. My wedding, my sister's wedding. My parents are divorced, see. It's not like they don't get on, it's just, agh you know. History n all that. So there has been much sitting around on the lawn, playing with clothes pegs (the baby), drinking tea (the grownups), spraying picture frames (the father - he has an exhibition next week so I'll be able to post lots of his pic like I did my ma's). My (pregnant) sister came up (down?) for a few days specially to see us and its been fab, just fab.
And tonight at dinner. Exes all over the place. an ex wife (my mother) and an ex husband (my father), an ex boyfriend (mine - he rents my dad's studio at the bottom of the garden) and my mother is staying with my sister's ex up the road. Jeez Louise, you couldn't make this shit up!
But shhhhh, the baby is alseep and I reaaly want to be too, so toodleoo and I'll try and write a better post tomorrow.
I have some posts swimming around in my head. Remind me to tell you about the python.
and this pic of the baby gal for Lemon Gloria coz her baby has the same monkey on his PJs
