k. and toddler t. came over for dinner on Tuesday night. We had a lovely evening, the best part of which was k. telling me she and t. and d. are going to be living back in Perth for 6 months as of November. Also good was the fact that k. didn't start any disputes involving Harry Chapin, for which we can all be grateful. t. is a most delightful and delightfully sociable child. He spent a lot of the evening jumping on to me and blowing raspberries on my face. This is to be expected with parents as gregarious as his. Though, in their defence, neither k. nor d. has ever attempted to blow raspberries on any portion of my body.
t. is also very well behaved. When he did do something just a bit naughty k. warned him off thusly: "Don't do that, t., or hazel will blog about it."
