I’ve sometimes thought about going on silent retreat. Often in a serious way as I do find the idea very appealing, but sometimes in a needing-a-break way because my children talk an awful lot. About Moshi Monsters and Horrid Henry and sports day and minecraft and what will we do at the weekend.
Last week, with husband away, beyond good morning and good afternoon at the school gates, I didn’t have a proper real-life conversation with another adult between Tuesday and Saturday. (Thank goodness for the online friends I type at every day: is this the modern replacement for valium?) By Saturday I had forgotten how conversations go and just blurted out random thoughts to the friends who had very kindly cooked me dinner. I was driving and sober but gibbering like a lunatic: unable to talk in a straight line but needing to get it all out now.
