a few days with mum and dad

Mum and Dad came to stay in Somerset with us from Wednesday to Saturday last week. We invited them to stay in the local hotel since we are still camping on the ground floor while our first floor refurbishment continues. Mum was quite keen to join in the camping experience and sleep in the dormitory with the children but luckily Dad prevailed on her to stay in comfort at the Walnut Tree Hotel. They had just spent a great weekend at Jacobs with George and co.

They were both in great form and enjoyed fitting into our upside down lives for a few days. Mum came to watch Imo in a hockey match in which she was captain of the team. Now M&D are in Germany.

I am glad to say that our building work has definitely got some light showing at the end of the tunnel. The heating was switched on last week. Boiling hot water flows from taps when expected. Three rooms were carpeted yesterday and we will get the boys sleeping in their new rooms this Saturday. The third room to be carpeted was my office so I hope to move my desk and computer etc out of the 'bedsit' this weekend. We will be mightily relieved to start returning to normal.
