and then there were none

August 3, 2013


We are officially language studentless* – Federico left this morning at the ungodly hour of 4.30am – too early even for breakfast.

This is what the sky – and the moon – looked like.

Federico nearly didn’t make it because he left his passport in the bedroom, but thanks to the beloved, who is used to prompting students, the omission was corrected before Federico got on the coach. He was the last one to arrive and I think people were getting a little anxious.4am

We had put the outside light on to see our way and inadvertently woke the wasps who have inconveniently decided to nest in the beloved’s bag of leaf mold. The wasps decided to congregate around the light in vast numbers and because the back door was open and the light was also on in the scullery, the wasps decided to congregate around that light too. I didn’t know early mornings could be so busy.

Eventually those wasps that hadn’t been frazzled by the light were persuaded to leave and we went back to bed.

Arlo said “A nice thing about getting up early and going to bed and then getting up again is that it feels as if you’ve gained an extra day”.  What a great way to see things.

*well Katrine’s still here, but she’s part of the family now and  doesn’t count as a language student.
