Grandma and Grandpa arrived, and brought gifts, and then went off to France, they’re back this weekend. Small Boy found the karaoke function on his music player, it was cute, at first, now it means we all need earplugs and my neighbours may never forgive us. The foot is healing slowly, I am not resting as much as I should, and we went to my favourite local spot, Ham House and Gardens. We have all had a mild dose of a lurgy, and I discovered that I do actually like salted caramel chocolate. I want a hat like that, but somehow I doubt I could carry it off!
