I'll just introduce you to the Gunns (Mr, Mrs, Ben, Top and BB - well, that's what I called them) The children hadn't long left the nest when we arrived, and it was great to follow their progress over the fortnight. The flying lessons were hilarious- they'd land on our roof with a clatter and, at first, make a very undignified descent to the ground with a bump, but gradually they perfected gliding on the wind and looking a lot more graceful.

Apart from lots of reading (and sleeping!) I also got some knitting done. Rather than take a large project, I bought some cotton knitting yarn before we left, and made 6 dishcloths - very useful little gifts, as well as for home.
http://www.designs-by-emily.com/ - thanks, Emily!) They work out very cheap but I'm also going to look for cotton knitted stuff to unpick, in the charity shops - reckon they'd look great in other colours.
Anyway, I need to start the mountain of ironing following the washing marathon since we got back. Love for now - hopefully more tomorrow. It was great having the bank holiday today, not to mention my day off tomorrow. I won't know what's hit me when I have to go back to work on Wednesday!
