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