One of my secret pleasures of these hot summer months
is taking the time mid day for a siesta, a proper lie down,
little D sleeps (for hours!), the oldest boy child quietly reads on the sofa and builds lego worlds.
My magpie middle child and I lay down on my big bed in front of the rotating fan (after ice cold showers) and I read a story a day from her new favourite book. A book given by an adopted grandmother of sorts here on the island (will save that story for another post).
Here are a few pages of our latest story book (I love the old illustrations and the way it's written).
* The best part of all though is if by chance she falls asleep before I do,
I get to gaze for a spell at her sleeping face, something I shall never tire of looking at.
Is there anything as sweet and peaceful as your child deeply asleep?
