We have had The Daddy One's parents here for the day today, they arrived around 11am and have just left, 9pm ish. The Smalls popped out to buy some plants for their Grandma who has had a birthday since we last saw her whilst I whizzed up a cake and a tiramisu for us to have later, ironic for someone who feels her families sugar consumption has slipped into the red of late (sugar reduces immunity and mouth ulcers are a sign of reduced immunity.) When they arrived the 7 of us walked into our village and Big Small completed the next phase of the circus summer reading scheme before we headed to our local pub for a beer garden lunch. Scampi. Our visitors also made a quick trip to see the allotment.
Much lego and duplo play this afternoon and S made a boat. We have watched The Oddessy, Barbie a Fairy Secret and a Star Wars movie.
The sad news from Norway has rather hung over my day today. The Daddy One, being in the oil business, has been to Norway 3 or 4 times on business and has commented each time on the great philosophy and attitude of the Norwegians. He has has several Norwegians working in his office.
