Sunday was quite relaxing, and the drive to pick up the daughter was stress free, which is always good. We met after the close of the supermarkets, so in McDonald's - I'm not a big fan of the food, but the ice cream...well, let's say I don't mind that. I had a Malteser McFLurry. Lovely.
Today has been quite busy, with school, a meeting and then helping the daughter and her friend prepare for a mock EU conference. I now know more about Malta's views on the expansion of the EU than seems strictly necessary for someone outside the Maltese Foreign Office! It's quite satisfying though.
I relit my Aga yesterday, so the house is cosy and I can dry my washing. the house just feels...alive when the Aga is on. It makes a massive (if undefinable) difference. I love it. I'd never have had one except there was one already fitted in my house when I bought it (don't imagine a large farm house - my house could be voted least likely to have an Aga!) but I couldn't be without one now.
I am currently watching rubbish telly (Buffy repeats!) and drinking tea, so thinks are just about perfect for the time being - until I have to go back into the salt mines tomorrow, anyway...
