chivalry is a bit of an odd one, because it's so masculine (in my mind anyhow) (and this is my blog, so we're doing my mind, right?) (g*d help you all)
I was trying to think of a feminine equivalent, and considerate came into my head - but it's not quite as strong or purposeful as chivalrous; chivalry suggest a degree more of putting oneself out for someone else. . .
and as for determined, well I detoured around a little. . .
thru "deter", "indeterminate", "inter", "undermine", "terminate", had a bit of a Dalek moment with "exterminate", and then settled on the thought that Smallest Person is almost half way thru her last term at the school in the village and when the end of July comes I will never have reason to go back there again
and, strangely, that felt perfectly right and didn't make me sad in the least
have a good day,
it's beautiful here
and I very much hope it is
where you are too!
