. I have just finished preparing some of the ingredients of the couple of dishes I am cooking tomorrow as we have invited to join us for lunch a lovely couple we are meeting for the first time .. I am also watching Master Chef while typing away in front of this laptop .. Anyway, while I was peeling garlic and onions, I remember 30 something years ago when my second son was about 4 years old, he asked why I was cooking a lot of food.. I told him that we are having some people over for dinner. And told him who they were .. He got excited.. " Are you looking forward to see them ?", I asked .. He went quite for a few minutes .. and then, he smiled and said.. " Not yet.. But when I see them coming, I will put my head forward like this ( he put his head forward ) .. And then I will tell them, I am looking forward to see you ".... Ahahha!.. Anyway, I am really looking forward to meeting our visitors tomorrow.. Will tell you all about it next post .. Bess I took that photo of our front garden last Saturday because I enjoyed a day doing a little bit of gardening .. It looked tidy but we have more gardening to catch up on .. ..

Did you remember correctly his age? His response was so intelligent and full of humor. I don't think I could have thought of that. Now when I say "Looking forward to see you" I will be reminded of this anecdote about your son....and put my head forward towards the people I am meeting.
