The Heiress is back and other things
The Heiress came home from school Thursday night, dropped off her bags and sat for a bit to chat. I noticed that her shoes stayed on. After the appropriate amount of time had passed she asked if she could borrow the van. There are three groups of friends to see when The Heiress is home: camp friends, childhood friends and a certain group of young men that love nothing more than to plot mischievous things to do. One evening, they took a bucket of golf balls to the top of a very steep road and dumped them just to see what would happen. Another time there was a bowling ball dropped from the roof of a two storey building...just to see what would happen (it broke). Needless to say, I worry when she steps out with these young men.
Last night after dinner, The Heiress went out for tea with a camp friend and came back at 10 pm. She came in to the family room and said 'Hello', she still had her shoes on. She left the room for a minute and I said to R 'I bet she asks for the car keys'. The Heiress came back into the room and asked for the car keys. My most fervent hope is that she was out with school friends and not conducting any more experiments in physics. Perhaps I'll go the 'ignorance is bliss' route.
And to the lovely Miss M, who still had an exam to write when The Heiress left for home, I hope things went well! Recently, The Heiress presented me with a Keep Calm and Carry On mug not knowing that I already had one. Miss M admonished her saying 'Well, if you read your mother's blog then you would have known that.' Bless.
