The rain started yesterday – a total washout of an afternoon yesterday :-(. It seems to have continued through the night and has rained pretty much all day today. The great news is that all those reservoirs that were looking (in fairness) a little too empty given the time of year, will be suitably filling up as we speak.
Daddy and Elliot went to daddy’s day at Little Starts Nursery this morning, so that Elliot could show daddy all the things that he does at nursery. We played with the letters and number on the magnetic board downstairs, and then when upstairs to play with the diggers and trucks, with sand and stones. We also played with the animals and finally the Thomas train set before leaving just before lunchtime.
We bought some new phones for in the house this afternoon, since we seem to be missing most calls in the house as the telephones that we did have appear to not always ring :-(. So we have some shiny new Panasonic phones to try. Over the years we have tried Binatone, Phillips, BT (twice, no three times) and they all seem to last just over a year and then die (albeit different deaths, they have all died in some form unfortunately).
We will need to program the damned numbers into them, since (like all the other phone manufacturers – in our experience) they do not allow the user to extract the numbers from an existing phone- they will copy / duplicate out to their own type of course.
