I’ve been scootering around the block with my little brother and sister and I’m just not made out for that life anymore. They were whizzing away while I tried not to let on that one of my legs had gone numb. Now the kids are asleep, I’m back in my element: in bed eating chocolate ready and rearing to talk about books 🙂
