We have just completed a full week without anyone in the family being ill!!! Certainly, cause for celebration.
Lately, I have been bidding for various items on eBay and am now the proud owner of an inflatable canoe. I was fascinated with a programme Paul Heiney had made for Anglia TV. He adventurously canoed along the lost rivers of the region, and I set my mind to do the same (with Sarah). The model of canoe I purchased apparently travelled the full length of the Amazon, so it should do the job.
In a competition I also won a TWIG mobile phone, it’s Scandinavian and has GPS and satnav on board. I am getting used to it……. slowly. It will come in handy on the walks I intend to go on in the summer.
Sarah got an ‘A’ in GCSE Maths and cooked a lovely Mexican meal at school for which she got an ‘A+’. During the week she played Hockey for the school, she played in goal, and they lost. No comment.
On Friday afternoon Jamie had his rear windows tinted on his car (cost £150). Not surprisingly, on Friday night, he reversed into a lady’s car in the Tesco carpark (cost unknown, as yet!) professing he didn’t see her. Hmmm.
