Skype video called Mum & Dad today. So easy and clear!! They got to see Jake and I got to see their faces. It made me feel less alone in the world. Paul took the day off to play in the snow so play in the snow we did. It was too powdery for a snowman so he and Jake made a snow mound. I finally cleared the kitchen drawers of junk. Hundreds of rubber bands, odd screws, bits of string and old receipts. Also reorganised my art boxes. And just overheard, “I find your smooches immature!” Ah, The Simpsons.
