Whizz bang!

We’ve just got back from a firework party round at the grandmothers’ place. It was great. The kids and their cousins all played ‘welding’, like last year. This involves holding sparklers against a manhole cover!

Dani and I have been working hard to clear the important bits of our house for the builders to start on Monday. I have to get back to that in a minute.

Just wanted to mention a fab book that P and I have just finished as our bedtime book. It was A Free Man on Sunday, and was a fictionalised account of the mass trespass on Kinder Scout. P was particularly pleased to find that this admirable event occurred on April 24th – her birthday – albeit sixty five years before she was born!

'Welding' sounds like fun...never thought of doing that with a sparkler.

Good luck with building prep.
