Day Trippers

We spent the day with morning with friends and shared lunch together at a reasonably priced eating establishment.  Pip and I had a jaunt through town and bought our weekly veggies from the market and our much needed peanut butter from our friend's health food shop.  Just as we were leaving the town centre Benedict and I popped into Marks and Spencer and bought him a lovely warm winter coat, long sleeved T-shirts, underwear and comfy cosy furry slippers.  He was one happy chappy.
Upon returning home we were greeted to the news that, our part of the city was on alert regarding a bomb scare and we were awaiting the army bomb disposal team from Leeds!  Apparently this is the second alert in less than a week, doh my mind must have been elsewhere when the first incident occurred!!  Naturally this sparked a lengthy discussion on how to diffuse a bomb and all such other related information.  Thank goodness for Dad I say, as this depth of knowledge totally eludes me!
Benedict is currently watching another installment of Tin Tin, I can see I'm going to have to read one of the mysteries and see if I can set him some literary and numerical challenges related to the read.

  1. Hey there, in the stillness of the house, the boarders are fast asleep and during my only free time in the evening, I thought that I'd check out your blog and see whats happening...I was gutted that I wasn't able to see my little bro invested but just seeing the pictures has bought me closer to my beloved, and distant, family.
    You are in my prayers and I hope that someday I'll be able to send you some pictures of this place, so that you can be with me just as I am with you...
    Love and blessings,
    your daughter Sara xx
