Autumn - The Pirate actually raised his voice at me this morning, Sara and The Poet heard it from afar! He was very cross that I have painted my toenails 'autumn colours' and requested that they change gradually, like the leaves. Whilst I am not adverse to a bit of pedicury, I think that's a step too far.
The Pirate really doesn't care for autumn and it brings out his melancholy side, but this was one of those perfect between season swims, calm, sunny but freshening. We all agreed that the water felt colder and this was confirmed by DK and his trusted thermometer, but there were pockets of cold and warm as we swam about. Sara is threatening to bring back the full wet suit already.
Privates on Parade
DK had been in London for auditions for his collaboration with Peter Nichols, which is being directed by Michael Grandage and staged in the West End. The auditions went well - I shan't give anything away - but the train journey did not. Tickets are selling fast and it got 'pick of the theatre' or something similar in The Times last week so hurry and book!
My new role as Governess. I start one to one tuition with an ex-student today and am really looking forward to helping her with her maths, spanish and photography as well as encouraging her musical interests. Both DK and No. 1 son are to be instrumental (pardon the pun) in this, although she is quite capable of recording stuff in her bedroom using Garage Band and getting You Tube followers on her own, as her voice is wonderful:
