Hello Kids! Mummy here. Mummy is in Amsterdam now on her little trip away.
This is my place. It’s really lovely. Just like being at home. I’ve got a whole one bedroom place to myself and really it is so like home it’s amazing. Apart from the super-steep stairs. It’s like climbing up a ladder going up. And like walking down a ladder going down.
I went to the local shop which is only about two minutes walk and I bought tomatoes, mozarella, black forest ham, gouda, lettuce, an apple and bananas. I remembered to pack some food too so I already have crackers and udon and pasta and some tinned tuna and sardines to eat too. Tonight I just had a platter of crackers and ham and tomatoes. With a nice glass of red wine.
I’ll be back in London again in time for the weekend to see you kids and daddy.
Miss you all like mad already x
The even better news, you kids, is that mummy is now going to get a proper full time job again, like the nice Art Director job she had at Ogilvy in Auckland last year. Mummy is very happy she works in digital – she wouldn’t suit civil service jobs very much!
And you kids you know Mummy and Daddy have set up bank accounts for you, so that every Friday you each get £30. That’s your university fund. Or an adventure fund perhaps. Because you kids know Mummy never went to University and she’s still got a proper successful career. But if you wanted to study architecture for example then I would definitely think that was money well spent. Media Studies? You may as well just start at an agency straight out of school when you’re 18 and earn money instead of paying people to teach you what you can learn on the job.
