New cars ...
Phillip came to pick Oli up this week and when he arrived, Oli in his inimitable style said, 'Hey danella, do you want to come and see my new car?'
He has just got this turn of phrase where you know Oli really wants you to come along, that coming with him is the best thing in the world to do ... and why on earth would you ever think not to.
Just parked near where we were at the gate was the new car. So I went to look with the other children and we were duly impressed. Oli stood on the doorstoop in the back seat, proudly smiling and looking at everyone and with one hand waving an invite next asked, 'Do you want to have a smell?'
Everyone knows how good something new can smell right? Yet Oli is the only person I know who would love it so much he'd invite you all right in to join him taking a whiff!
I'm still laughing over that invite. Of course I obliged ... and when Oli noticed me taking it in, he just gave me an acknowledging nod as he looked straight at me as if to say, 'Pretty good don't you think.'
He is one very funny, very entertaining, smart dear little man.
