Weekend in the Squeeniedome (sic)

La. Grandparents. Quite mad. And rather lovely.

Saturday: Had a lovely lie-in, larked round the house, played on the internet, inspected the house to make sure nothing had changed. At lunchtime Rosie and Matthew came round, then we all bopped off to young Mary's birthday party (she was 9; I hadn't seen her since she was about 4, so she's grown up some!) and saw various relatives, of which I am richly endowed. Came back, played Scrabble with Matthew (won by about 20 points - huzzah! - though given that he's just turned 18 would have been a bit embarrassing if I hadn't), had tea by fire. All well and jolly. G&G were mainlining Mozart all evening, so I pottered about on t'internet then went to bed.

Sunday: More with the lying-in, to my grandparents' despair! Grandma and I embraced the computer: I showed her how to work the whole address book concept in Outlook, then we Googled the general knowledge crossword clues, which was, as always, great fun. Reigate used to be called Cherchefelle - who knew? Had lunch. Pottered around a bit, watched Charlie Brown, had tea by fire again - I toasted tea-cakes on the fire, which always makes me feel like I'm in Little Women or something. Ooh, and we listened to the original recording of Tell Me On A Sunday, which was nice.

Ooh, and Katie, my Great-Uncle-Ted-by-marriage says he has an electric drill going begging should we need one. I can't see that we will, but thought I would pass it on. *g*
