Anyway, today was the day of Santa Margherita, so neither kid was in school today. Instead, after Metta and I had been to dance (just to clarify, I wasn't dancing. I was waiting. Equally exciting I think you'll agree) we walked up the hill (and my GOD is that a steep hill! Aaand I had to carry Metta half of the way up it. I was near dying by the top) to the Santa Margherita. Here we had this buffet lunch thingy (I think the others may have been to a Mass before it but I'm not sure) which was nice. Super exciting- I saw my first real live monks. Woop woop! Full of new experiences is this job. One of them asked if I would be willing to go and teach the monks how to speak English. I couldn't work out how to say in Italian that, actually, working with two children was just about as much work as I could take and if I had to teach anymore English I might just loose my mind completely so just politely said that I didn't have enough time.
Despite the fact that this was my first day on my own, and both kids were here all day, it was not too bad today. There were pretty much no tears, no one told me they hated me and, despite having to tear chicken off the bone with my bare hands (ok, not bare hands. I wore rubber gloves but still!), dinnertime was a fairly successful event tonight. At any rate, we ate before midnight (which is around about the time it ended up being last night. I'm out of practice with the whole cooking thing).
And so the day passed quietly but successfully. It was weird and a bit lonely without Maelys but only 40 days left so it'll be fine...
