After a week’s vacation, GF returns to work tomorrow. This will mean setting the alarm and climbing out of bed early. This morning the cat decided it would be appropriate to help GF acclimatise, leaping on to the bed and walking all over the Gorse Fox until he got up, stumbled down the stairs and let the cat out into the garden to play.
The early start did mean that he has managed to get a fair bit done – the papers were studied, emails checked, expenses completed, ironing finished, and car filled with diesel. The day was under control – though a small irritation occurred when the Silver Vixen’s car failed to start – but judicious use of the battery charger soon sorted that out.
The highlight was Cousteau-cub and the Coventry Hobbit calling in on Skype and having a long chat. It was so nice to see and hear them and to catch up on their news and plans. They are heading off for a week in Lombok in a three weeks time and are obviously looking forward to the break.
