Last night

A warm and welcoming home; children smiling, cheezles tinting fingers orange; meeting new friends like they are old friends; devouring casserole, couscous and homemade strudel; elegantly sippingguzzling champagne; inaugurating a Who Is The Biggest Princess competition; storytelling around the table; reminiscing about New York; making sweeping generalisations about the French, just for the fun of it; pondering the meaning of 'home'; debating about James Blunt and the motivations of songwriters and poets everywhere; a story about a dragon who is also a boy; a friend achieving the near impossible - a literary agent; gazing at the Milky Way; spotting my first shooting star; making a big wish.How was your night?
