"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

All grown up

"Have you locked the back door?" asked Dad as we got ready to set off for his GP appointment.
"Yes," I said, "I've been running a home for a long time now, you know."
"Oh yes," he said apologetically. "It's just that when you're here, I forget you're grown up. I think you're still at school."
Still trying to work out whether to take that as a compliment or not...
