Home Again..

We've been home just a few days. It was very nice to come home to a few orders for Party Bags ( ) and no complaints, always a plus!
Fruitcake, my adorable puppy was pleased to see me, my pigs squealed and rushed over to grunt at me, it was nice to be home. There was a death while we were on holiday..Fluffy, the goldfish passed away while in the care of my mother-in-law.
Thankfully we are so high up that flooding was not a problem here, believe me, if it flooded here, Noah and gang would be floating by.
I went up to the empty house this morning to meet the man who was measuring up for new carpets. Dai the spark hadn't been in, nor had Paul the Plaster. The house is still in a state of gutted-ness (ok, I made that word up). Why are people so unreliable? The quote for new central heating is enormous considering what a tiny house it is...I'm not happy.
One tale from our trip...We finally left for Gatwick at around 6pm on Friday 13th after all the usual questions..have you got your bunny? no we're not taking Fruitcake, have you got matching shoes on? where are the passports? no the dog hasn't got one.....
We travelled for two minutes (one mile exactly) and had to make our first stop for Sophie to 'wee in the hedge' (thank goodness we don't live in town). Second stop was at Membury Services for Sophie to wee again, she sat on the loo and looked very earnestly at me and said "I'm having a very nice holiday!"
If only we were all that easily pleased!
