Asked him nicely before he set off if he would suss and bring back certain things for us. He always forgets, bless:o) Maybe this time will be different:o) Top of wish list...proper maple syrup. A Ukrainian Kitchen fridge magnet...Canada is the second Ukraine..with a huge Uki population:o)) Asked him to find me a pen pal, please and also to suss out the home edding scene there with maybe a contact. He's back next week, so we shall see.
Down this neck of the woods, the kids don't go back to school until Wednesday. Two inset days before they can start!!
Junior has drawn up a little timetable. Asked her what she wants to learn about, so she's tabled her choices in. She's still keen on French and our starter country to study 'this year' is, of course, Canada, so it all links in. Maybe one day we can save up enough and go over, but we'll definitely try and get over to France. It all helps when you have family who live a stone's throw away from channel ports. They can get a return ferry ticket for less than it costs Junior and I to get a return to the nearest town here!! Madness, eh?
The kittens have a new game. It's "Let's romp all over the answer machine and turn it on and off, delete messages. Such fun!! " I think they like the little 'trill' the machine makes when the buttons are pressed. Suppose it beats climbing up and swinging from the voile curtains! They're also into switching the printer on and off. They've sussed out that the little bit of heat that comes from it provides a warm resting spot, so computer cupboard is firmly off limits now.
As I type, there are three black kittens sat side by side behind me, on the back of the sofa, watching as I type! So...... what are the rest of 'em up to, because it's all gone very quiet all of a sudden? Eeeek!!! Please, God....they haven't got the wool...again?
