I was pondering where to take the girls for lunch in town today – reasonably healthy, reasonably priced, not too far out of our way… when Pearl pointed out that we were right next to a supermarket.
“We could get some bread rolls and take them to the gardens with us and have a picnic,” she said.
“Perfect!” said I, and that is what we did.
As we sat in the sunshine admiring the tulips and magnolias, I thanked her for having such a good idea.
“Oh, it wasn’t my idea,” she demurred. “It was just my mind, the idea just… popped out!”
I chose not to pursue a line of questioning on where her ideas usually come from… and went back to enjoying the tulips and the sunshine.
