This summer's social calendar is slowly filling, but, sadly, it'll be lacking two small boys.
It now looks as if my youngest, Wills, will be heading for Europe alone.
He will come here of course, he has builders to organise; but it'll be a short visit. He needs to visit Zurich to look at property, so his time will be limited.
I was looking forward to having little Boo Boo and his new brother Micha here to play with, but it looks like I'll have to wait a while.
Occasionally life's a bugger, but I suppose one has to accept that other people's schedules cannot always be organised simply to suit our convenience.
Meanwhile I chat to Boo Boo by Skype. Roll on 2019.
