.. what a day! I've just made nice curry for our tea, a veggie one and a Thai green with swordfish... eaten hungrily and all gone, faster than I took to throw them together! It's all been a bit of a haze.. (well it is now) I really enjoyed the bottle of Brothers Ginger Cider before tea, I guess the troops are lucky we didn't make do with bread and cheese which I would if they weren't about!
Anyways... what do Nannies do? Well they take grand-daughters to Tesco for some shopping, but fearful of losing the child's 'four little 'friends'..aka two Timmy the Sheep toys and two yellow 'loves' blanket scraps around the store, they go to great lengths to encourage tear-free leaving of said friends in the car... let's leave them to be safe in the car, so they are not lost etc etc...thus keeping them safe involves seat belts and many farewells..and the odd photo or so..
The day has been good in other ways too, Col's had his stff back kind of sorted and we had a customer visit with tender documents and it all seemed to go well.
Add to that a few nice cuddles with the new baby and a few good emails from more eager customers and it's been a good day...
...only downside was booking hotels for Col's trip to Ireland.. all way too nice to enjoy under single occupancy. If there wasn't a staff shortage here due to our local agricultural show I'd probably book myself a last minute ticket to go too!
It was nice though, not many Premier Inns and he has a car to consider so I've booked one out of town and right by the sea, hopefully it will make the days away more palatable..
