Hello, my dears. Amelia Hardesty speaking. I’m very pleased to make your acquaintance.
Yes, I realize that my … well, call it house arrest … was of my own doing, but that doesn’t make me resent it any less.
Perhaps Matthew could be persuaded to let me take dear Mitch to Europe during summer break. We wouldn’t go to Paris, though, obviously. Italy, I think. I’m sure Andrew would look after the dogs for me while we’re gone.
Now! I feel happier already! Hand me my cigarettes, would you, dear? Thank you so much!
Oh! Pop over and visit Nancy Mock’s delightful Hungry Enough to Eat Six, an amusing and visually pleasing food blog.
