Rituals

We all have our routines. Our rituals. That guide us through daily life and ground us. The ferguson household is no different. This is my favourite one.


It's called sharing the crusts. Harris and Horatio sneak out of bed as Scott slumbers and they join me in the kitchen as I read the news and blogs on the iPad over an espresso and two slices of toast.  One buttered with jam and the other with peanut butter. Always. And the boys enjoy the quiet ritual of a few small crusts (not many mind as I like them too!). As soon as the last morsel of toast is gone, they vanish. Back to the bedroom for another few previous moments of sleep before they are dragged out for another ritual. Walk #1 of the day with Scott. That's another story though.

Happy Friday.

Horatio, old pal,
To experience truly ritualistic behaviour, you need to come to Aberdeen and watch Gail brewing her morning coffee on Friday mornings (her day off).
Toodle pip!
Bertie.
