Not what I had planned

 April was ill and to be better safe than sorry got covid19 tested.  That meant that the whole house had to safe isolate, so I had to take a parental day off (not great timing as things are beginning to pick up) to look after the kids.

Flo lasted 30 mins of constant questions before asking for something else on.
Who's that guy, what's he riding, who's that guy (the same guy), where are they?  

Flo was great and really helped out, otherwise it could have been a very long day.  Fortunately two of our friends were off too so were able to take Arwen out for a couple of walks.

Friend visit

Cold meet with Shaheen and family

Arwen got too excited so had to stay downstairs for part of it.

She mostly listened from the cat flap.


Looks like we might need to buy one of these

 Flo had a great time round my brothers on Sunday, we had a lovely easter egg hunt in the morning and some outdoor lunch.  Flo had great fun playing with everyone, especially on their new trampoline.

The dogs had fun too although at times the excitement got the better of them both and poor Bobler had to have a timeout indoors.

At it again

 Those cheeky guys at SI are at it again.  Very nearly had me, or at least for 3 seconds.  I clicked on the accept button anyway.

House update

 Not much to say really other than we've booked in some tree surgeons to take down a couple of trees and have appointments booked with kitchen designers next week.

We're still waiting on final structural drawings then we can see if we can find a decent builder to start work.  I think we're quite a few months behind our original plan.  It'll get done eventually, just not anytime soon.

We're seriously considering getting one of these as a centerpiece

Weekend plans?

  • Thursday evening:  Chips and wine on the sportsground
  • Friday:  Wine and kids playing in the garden of a friends house
  • Saturday: Rugby tots early, Shaheen, Kate and the Kids visiting
  • Sunday: Easter egg hunt round my brothers
  • Monday: TBA, possibly covid tests.

Tired Arthur

 Arthur was up earlier than usual this morning so decided to make the most of his trip to nursery. 

Looks like I might get an extension

 I had a 1 to 1 with my boss earlier and it turns out she's expecting (due in Sept), the other news is a girl in my small team is leaving to move to a different company (that's the second).  Maybe it's something i've done.

Anyway, I was asked if i'd consider an extension, I said yes.  

That felt good

 Photos from the lockdown easing Monday bbq!

It got a little chilly

End of evening

Sorry for the orientation 

The girls had a drink or two too

First beer

Loves the stokes

I got burnt!

The cat enjoyed it too

The rams skull needed putting back up

I even cleaned the fridge

I shouldn't be allowed on a ladder

What a beautiful day
