It's been all systems go here, somehow. My sister and the Indomitable Uncle Dan are MOVING HOUSE, so we spent the weekend with them stripping wallpaper and cleaning the undersides of shelves, you know how you do. Lots of painting, which I love, except when you're painting a gentle shade of cream over mint green and it takes twenty-seven coats.
The boys have all kinds of stuff going on. Hordes of friends coming over, which we all love. I am eating the salt out of the bottom of the nachos bowl as we speak.
Tomorrow is SAM'S BIRTHDAY! And also SHARON'S BIRTHDAY!
I have bought a meeelion new picture frames, and everywhere you look there are happy family and friends looking back at you. It's lovely!
Chas and I are taking turns reading (we're fighting over it, actually) (I'm allowed to read after bedtime!) Terry Pratchett's 'Wintersmith' and giving it four thumbs up! This is book three, go read 'The Wee Free Men' and 'A Hat Full of Sky' first.
AAAAND... that's all for now! I promise to post more soon. Things are busy. Thank you for your helpful advice of last week, including offers of cattle-prods and the divide-and-rule tactic. Feng Shui in the form of loving photos has been interestingly successful, kinda.
What I need is a BLACK BELT in Feng Shui. Sign me up!
