Matt, Sara and the girls came over on Saturday and stayed overnight. We polished off a couple of bottles of very nice Red Cabernet Sauvignon, half a bottle of Sambuca – clearly we had an ace time. 🙂
Elliot came back into his mummy and daddy’s bedroom with Jessica in tow, explaining to his parents that he had found his best friend and that they were going to watch Lightning McQueen and play with stickers 🙂
The 7 series is now officially up for sale 🙁 – it has (or shortly will) make an appearance on Autotrader for the next 3 weeks – hopefully this will be enough. please cross your fingers for us on a quick, efficient sale.
The small cosmetic damage to the 7 was put right by Grant from GHL Bodyworks in Ossett. He did a terrific job and charged a VERY reasonable price. Took two days and he earned himself a 18% bonus in beer tokens – really pleased with the work.
Olly has begun to move around a little finally – he kind of shuffles on his bum when he is sat upright. He is also feeling better again although has returned to requiring feeding in the night etc.
Elliot and mummy seem to be coming down with a cold – and daddy has whinged on about a throat complication – painful swallowing which makes eating and drinking painful.
Simon and Oliver’s passports arrived at the end of last week so we are all set for the home search trip to CA. We have also got an interview date for the US embassy for the Visa for Vicky and Simon – so we are heading nicely in the right direction.
Finally, it rained heavily on Friday night and we woke up on Saturday with pretty much NO snow left – the original snowman is still there although looks more like a large football at the minute. The back garden is extremely waterlogged however – I guess this is to be expected given the amount of snow and the rapid nature of thawing
