The liquor store

Just one more doctor’s appointment today for us. This time the paediatrician (pediatrician!) With nothing major to report after this the 3 of us went to somewhere called McAlister’s deli for lunch, basically a glorified sandwich shop it did do normal sized portions of healthy food, so may well become a favourite! Then we snuck around the corner to…….the liquor store! Thomas was banned from even crossing the threshold. Inside was really pleasant with a helpful gentleman who pointed me towards a good Zinfandel and a bottle of gin! Then the best bit of the whole experience was the bottles being put into brown paper bags in true contraband style. It may be more straight forward to buy a gun, buts that for next week at the gun show!

    Wow, Becca, you are all leading an extraordinary surreal life arent you. And all reported with such fortitude and the brilliant undertone of English humour. Then there’ll be a baby, too. What events. Amazing! But you never were someone who did things by halves, right from when you were a tiny little girl in Florence.
    Your lovely boy always gives the feeling of such stoicism and good cheer.

    With much love and thinkin of you lots and lots
