There's a whole lot of eating going on

We had dinner out with friends last night and lunch with neighbours whom we hope to get to know better today. Tuesday is grocery day and I hope to buy tons of food - or maybe tonnes, which is larger? - and in particular lots of things for baking with, like sugar and self-raising flour and so on. Honey, too, I expect.

I also have some John Lewis vouchers so I might take the children to Waitrose and buy things like meatballs and out-of-season fruit and other things.

Linnea has been experimenting with symmetry. And Emer's language is leaping ahead of her.

I spoke to my mother and two of my sisters today. I might try to call the other two next weekend. We need to sort out who is visiting whom this summer, and when. And to do that, Rob and I need to firm up when we're going camping! Three of our camping trips are pre-planned by other people, so the dates are fixed but unknown, and one we're hoping to have as a nuclear family holiday, just the four of us, which will be lovely if we manage it. We tend to need all Rob's annual leave for family and friends stuff, most years, but this year we're having a private Christmas, so... Here's hoping, anyway.

Speaking of plans for the summer: July 11th is my sister's wedding, so we'll quite likely be in the UK from the 5th to the 12th of July.

A tonne is 1000kg, or about 2200lb. A ton is larger, at 2240lb. Unless you American, in which case it's 2000lb.

Mine of useless information, me? 'tis a vile slander.

What do you mean, her language is leaping ahead of her?

Sometimes, she is surprised by her ability to say what she wants to say. This never happened to Linnea that I can remember.

I have waitrose meatballs in the fridge as a friend recommended them :)

Andy is the same with his holidays, it all gets used on things with us & he doesn't even now get to take time off at Christmas. 20 days doesn't go very far.
