Summer, Week 2, Year 4
The children had been enjoying playing in the sprinkler to cool down. Their giggles were infectious as they splashed each other and jumped in the puddles.
During a particularly hot spell, the Harringtons enjoyed time in the garden. They’d recently purchased a paddling pool for the children and Alexandra had paid for a proper patio at last. As the sun went down on one particularly hot day, the Duke and Duchess enjoyed a gourmet salad and lemonade under the shade of the parasol.
Alexandra’s been doing very well at work and was recently promoted. Her paintings have been very popular and she’d now hired an agent to help he negotiate better prices for her artwork.
Alexandra had Thursdays off, so she took a handful of her paintings to the Infinity Hall and set about trying to sell them there. It turned out to be a very successful event and she wondered whether she ought to do regular art shows in the gallery. The public seemed to love her paintings!
Back at home, George had been practicing his mixology skills to great effect. Balancing three bottles at once was the epitome of good mixing abilities, not to mention a most excellent party trick.
Ethan and Tristan had gathered in their parents’ bedroom after Vanya’s birth. Ethan was excited for another sibling – he adored both Tristan and Annabelle now but Tristan wasn’t so sure about another little sister. Ethan gave his little brother a hug to make things better.
Up next: The Stantons!
