Quite a successful day.
I didn't set my vacuum alight - so that was an improvement on last year.
Kids all got on, even during a prolonged game of Simpsons Snap.
I won the Sing-a-long Rock Star game on the playstation with my interpretation of Keane's 'Somewhere Only We Know'. The game will be going back tomorrow marked 'Faulty'.
The only 'OH MY GOD!'moment was when we watched Eastenders. Pauline Fowler dying I can cope with (celebrate even), but Sonia wearing exactly the same red dress as mine and looking bloody awful in it has caused me some lasting damage.
Was quite successful too. Good walk this morning, followed by very good gin and tonic in pub, followed by a rare win for the Cobblers, and then yet another huge dinner as obviously we didn't have enough to eat yesterday.
Any more food and I will look as fetching as Sonia did when next I wear my red dress.
Best heckle at football yesterday expressed after about 40 minutes of watching nothing much happen: "I'm missing Chitty-Chitty Bang Bang for this!"
Latest weather report for Lapland is that it will be mainly sunny for the next two days. SUNNY???!! It isn't even supposed to get light at this time of year let alone be sunny.
Bloody cold though....hooray!
Fourteenth - *Regarding Monday August 14th...* As expected, Monday morning was grey and wet but I didn't mind as I was driving home. I paid one last visit to Kirkcudbri...
