up down

March 3, 2008

I’m drained tired and snotty, achy and feeling rough.

Saturday was great, we got up early made it in to town shopping. Came back and completely cleaned and hoovered the lounge and kitchen. Then my sister and her husband popped over for an hour with Ewan and Bethan. They met Otis and Jasper and played on computer games. We made coffee and chatted and I showed them round the new car. Otis and Jasper were happy to have guests they greeted them and played a little. I was surprised how well they took to everyone, this bodes well for them visiting people if we need to, like when we want to go on honeymoon.

After they left we went over my brothers taking the car out for its first proper run. Still smallish roads so I’ve not tested it out on overtaking yet. Its a lovely smooth ride and very comfortable. When we got to “woodstock cottage” (the name suits the converted barn down to the ground) the power was out. The kids were fed from a gas ring cooker and we ordered takeaway.  The evening was spent by candle light chatting by a roaring log fire trying to think of things to do. We took a moment outside to watch the stars which were very very cool and bright because of the lack of lighting anywhere near. At that point there must have been a 3 mile radius of power outage, complete darkness and clear skies. It didn’t last long and we got cold.

Sunday was spent feeling the effects of doing far too much on Saturday. I managed to get some cat food the same as Jasper needs. This seems to be doing the trick although the change of what he eats again has meant more runny days. We even had a really early nights sleep last night but now there is no denying I’m pooped.
