Sunsets and Sisters

Had two gorgeous days here. The sunset last evening was beautiful.  I know it's only January but you cannot deny there is a little bit more light at each end of the day (approx 15 mins per week I am reliably informed by dear husband who is a science teacher,) and I for one feel spring is just around the corner, don't you? This is my bedroom window view.....

..a bit blurry but I love to sit on my bed, knitting in hand, staring.

These are my eldest two. The big one has been home from university for Christmas (1st term) and there has been a fair amount of bickering. They are as different as chalk and cheese. However, she passed her driving test (1st time) two days before Christmas and this evening she took her sis shopping. I think they are pals really. And she is off back to uni on Sunday, so we will all miss her. They grow up so quick.
Ours is a busy household as the youngest is only five and there are six of us without the biggest, but we still feel incomplete when one is missing. I wonder when you get used to that feeling if ever?

I don't think we will ever be without children  though because by the time the youngest is eighteen, the eldest will be thirty one and maybe we will be grandparents by then. Who knows?
