Matt went to Manchester on Wednesday night for meetings today. He was still away last night so Mummy had to do breakfast and the morning routine again on her own (and Mummy doesn’t really “do” mornings).

But at 8am we were all ready and there was time for a treat of some TV – and there is nothing better than sitting on your sister’s lap to watch it.

A wet morning at Dinton Pastures followed for Lx on a school trip that I helped on – before we all came home early. Sx had an afternoon at the university on a different school trip – walking there and back in the rain.He was better off than some who didn’t have coats – although it would have been better if he had remembered to take the hood.

We were a bedraggled bunch tonight!
