Penny is sitting in the armchair by the window playing on her computer - the tinny music of her game is accompanied by her tapping on the keys. Out in the hall I can hear Ben and Hugh talking. Hugh is painting the walls and Ben (who is home for the weekend) is holding the ladder. They are laughing about the awful film Hugh lent to Ben. It makes me happy to hear them get along together so well. The sun is peaking weakly in through the window. The clouds are low and grey and the sun will soon be setting. Willow and Arwen are both asleep one on the footstool and the other in Hugh's armchair. They are both recovering from their annual inoculation and feeling very sorry for themselves. I am curled up in the corner of the settee. I have been reading a book on my IPad and know that I will soon have to get up and prepare some food for us all. But for now I can return to my book and read the captivating story for another ten minutes at least.
This "Simply a Moment" is inspired by Alexa of Trimming the Sails. There are other February moments here.
