Bad News

The nanny yesterday evening turned out to be an old lady wearing a wig.

Smelling of cigarette smoke… Not good looking OR smelling… But she does have a car, cooks (!) and cleans. And since she is our only candidate (second girl has canceled as well) we do not have a lot of choice. Lina it is.

As long as she smokes her cigarettes outside and her wig stays in the right position (otherwise son K. is really going to lose it) everything will be just fine. I mean, how much lasting damage is an old lady going to do to our kids in those two short afternoons a week?

Can not be too concerned about it now anyway. Other things on my mind. Two spots to be exact. Just received a phone call . The X-ray of my lungs I had yesterday (my GP was pretty thorough), was not good. Seeing a lung specialist tomorrow.
