Last night we went to dinner at a friend’s to watch the supermoon. It was incredibly beautiful. We cooked and ate outside and Bill and he rigged up a sound system so we could listen to the right music for the moon rising. We had binoculars and jumpers and wine.. and some people had etc’s, but not us, we have children instead. Our host made ice-cream cones for our kids, the way bachelors do, with a layer of sweets inside the cone, because there is no such thing as too much.
After dinner we all lay in blankets on the grass and watched the moon some more. The children fell asleep out there, one on either side of me, and then we talked about all the things you cannot talk about when the children are awake, until it was too cold to be out any longer.
I find a good fire-maker very attractive. Bill is the best fire-maker I know. The very first time he kissed me he smelt of the fire he had just built for us.
