The week where we had a flying visit from a lovely friend who lives a fair distance away from us. The week when we were able to climb the church tower for amazing views. The week with stark contrasts in the weather in a 24-hour period.
The week where I made a quick visit up to town in order to exchange an evening dress (and found time to check out the Christmas decorations in a famous department store). The week it became obvious that DS is making friends at school. The week with much colder weather, resulting in boots and 60 denier tights. The week with frequent visits to the coffee shop: my new American friend invited me for coffee on Thanksgiving ~ she said she wanted to thank me for being so friendly and helpful to her. Cue embarrassed Brit.
