Any way, our other invalid was Mrs. Tiggs our ex-battery hen. All my fault, absolutely horrible mother that I am, I shut her foot in the hen-house door. Heard that awful <
The weather, as I'm perfectly sure you know, hasn't been up to much, so when the forecast hinted at a dry (but overcast) Saturday, Paul and I jumped at the opportunity to get under the Land Rover bonnet to have a tinker. Don't ask me what needed doing, I was just the helper to go under the car and un-screw jubilee clips and help with other simple jobs. What I did know was that nothing could get at all wet! Lo and behold, 5 mins into starting we felt the split splats of rain and had to cover everything up and keep our fingers crossed. The sun did eventually come out so Paul was able to successfully finish the job. He was pleased it all went to plan, but sadly it hasn't fixed what ever problem it is that's keeping the car off the road.
We celebrated my father-in-law's birthday yesterday with a lovely BBQ in the warmth of the sun. Being a classical music lover we found a print of the world made up from old music manuscripts - once it's framed it should look great in his study. Do you like the little tag I made for him?
Here's Ben with their new kittens. This one is Jennifer, giving Ben a welcome kiss! Polly is a little more reserved - she remained curled up on the bed just keeping an eye on everything and everyone!
