take away two
There is to be so much coming and going of visitors in the next few days, so much so, that we’ve had to draw up a list (written on a white board, thoughtfully screwed to the kitchen door, it usually reads, ‘Remember games kit’ ‘Don’t forget drum lesson’ every home of school age children should have such a board.) but the list only works if you know what day it is in the first place and I for one have lost the plot. So Mr Uhdd is keeping the board updated for me, i read that today is Monday.
Joe’s friend is already here, I collected him from the A38, at the Little Chef (south bound) at Barton Under Needwood last night. (is there anything more depressing looking than a Little Chef on the 27th December?) The family M are arriving tomorrow, it is a long running joke that Mr, Mrs and Ms M always bring with them a ‘gremlin’ that causes a domestic appliance to fail whilst they are visiting us. This time they have excelled themselves, they haven’t even pointed the car at the M1 and the dishwasher has packed up and the boiler is making whirry noises. I must email them, ‘bring Marigolds and additional jumpers.’
