Workday evening...

You know, some days turn out in ways you just don't expect...

Take today.

Ordinary enough work-day Wednesday. I was busy editing a story that I'd asked for revisions on, but still had to pretty much begin from scratch. Them's the breaks when you deal with new writers.

Then I headed off to pick up the kids. I got a call while I was on the train from after-school care. This is not usually good news. Last time I got a call from them they informed me they couldn't find my son - !!! Today they rang to tell me he had a fever. Again.

So I pick up my sickie and my bubba and get home - to find this on the front door (in an Esky, I ought to add!)

In with this caramelised leek, fennel, spinach and haloumi tart was a bottle of sauvignon blanc and some vegie patties for the kids.

A friend had left this for me.

Just because she'd made two of these beautiful tarts and thought I might like one on a work-day evening.

I have to confess I shed a little tear because, wow, how lovely is that?

People, they are good.

And this from a friend who has two kids littler than mine, who also works, and who I haven't seen for yonks.


And I also got to take home a handful of cheery flowers from the buckets full we had in the office from one of our December issue shoots.

Life, and work, they are good.

Wow. That tart sounds divine and who doesn't love receiving flowers. You have good friends. You must be a good person to have friends like this!

Looks yummy, isn't it great when people do kind things like that? My next door neighbour turned up at the door last week with homemade lemon meringue pie, I had been craving something sweet, her timing was perfect: :-)
