A surprisingly quiet Haf-term. We had Lucas to stay from Sunday to Saturday while mum and dad had a break in Majorca. I have often contemplated having another dog; to play with, take walks and of course a source of unfailing devotion. Lucas ticks all the same boxes, with the added advantage being that you don’t have to stop at every lampost for a sniff.
Charlotte and Suraj had a peacful time in Majorca, they slept a lot and shopped a lot. Their Hotel (all inclusive) was next to The Samoa, where a little girl fell from the balcony and her mother was found dead in the sea. They saw the helicopters, but were unaware of the tragedy until we told them when they got back. They returned on Saturday night, minus their suitcases, which had gone walkabout somewhere in Europe. We learned that one had turned up in Berlin.
The weather has beed fine during the week so Lucas has had lots of walks; to the shops, the post box and the pub down the road (because they have a playbarn attached!!!!) I have managed to paint Sadolin (expensive stuff) onto the garage and all the wooden bits around the outside of the house. I got into the swing of it and also painted the benches and table in the garden, I shan’t do them again, much too fiddly.
Sue has spent a week making bottles up, then cleaning them. Cooking meals that can be liquidised and then fed to Lucas. Pushing a pram and wiping the nether regions of a small boy. I think she enjoyed it?
Jamie is still seeing Lara.
Sarah has helped out a lot with Lucas. She has had a few sleep-overs at friends. At present she is catching up with her homework.
