Thing one, she is finally taller than me. We’re both delighted really.
Thing two, she was in a documentary film in transition year and now she’s on the poster for the film on her own looking quite cool and moody (though she tells me her role is a small one and that she does not love the picture they have used for the poster). I am very excited and think she looks amazing. She seems to be indifferent, at best. To her absolute mortification, I have messaged the director to see if I can get a hard copy. She is never going to tell me anything ever again, she says. Still, worth it if I can frame the poster and hang it on the landing.
