Life, photos but not the universe

Oops, I forgot a title.

Really, I should think twice before updating anything at bed time.

I thought I’d just plug the iphone in and tidy up a few bits and pieces and then studied the worrying  information that I could update the OS but I had to copy some apps to iTunes first.  After a while, I worked out how to do this (just a question of reading the instructions again really) and then thought oh well why not update now.  So off it went, and then said “downloading 1 item.  3 hours remaining”.  !  But but but?

I’m not waiting up.  If it has problems it’ll have to wait till morning.


It didn’t have problems.


What an excellent weekend!

I drove to Wiltshire to meet Ziggi and Z and we had marvelous cake and were surrounded by lovely furry and feathery people.  (Eva shown here being furry and leafy)

It was brilliant seeing Zig and Z and then I drove home, with Z  following, and she stayed the night.  Z was a lovely guest and charmed both Barney and the cat – who I have to say is very good at being charmed – though a bit hairy with it.  Barney is a much tougher proposition but like all of us, he now loves Z.

Then we introduced Z to the Youngests and the Middles and Gorgeous Babe – quite briefly, as Z had yet another meet to go to – and then we had a big lunch, cooked by the three Youngest* grandchildren with a bit of help from Mum.  Then we were overwhelmed by exhaustion and went home and fell asleep.  How Z managed to cope with 600 miles and at least six different visits and still look as fresh and relaxed and cheerful as she did, I can’t imagine.

The three Youngest grandchildren demonstrated amazing skills – not just in cooking.

Now I’m going to finish my interrupted afternoon sleep.  Goodnight and sleep well.

*That’s Youngest as in Mr and Mrs Youngest – they are really the older grandchildren.  Little Middle (Gorgeous Babe the second) is the youngest.

  1. I’m not keen on cats, but that one is gorgeous.

    That sounds like a lovely weekend. I’m not envious at all (much).

  2. it was lovely to see both you and Z, here’s hoping we can do it all again sometime!

    Ahh spoon hanging, one of my favourite sports. I hope no-one cheated and licked there’s first.

  3. I’m glad you’re not envious Liz – but do drop in if you’re down here ever : )

    Oh yes, hoping, Zig. They breathed on the spoons – but hey! do you mean you can do it too?

  5. Ohhhhhh…..talented grands! I’m gonna haffta see if the Bug knows that one! What a precious moment with ’em.
    And what a fun adventure with the Z’s and Iggs and furry things.
    600miles?! Holy cow……she’s a bundle of energy then.
    After 100 I’d be whining. LOL

  6. I was really tired by the time I arrived home, mind you. I drove the last half hour with the window open in case i felt like going to sleep.

    Barney is obliged to like me, because I like him so much. I’ll even shut up and listen. And you’re both jolly good cooks and very hospitable. Thank you very much xxx

  7. I saw the kids with the spoons on their noses and just laughed.
    I can remember doing that as a little one. Mine never did that, so it’s good to see some one still remembers that bit of foolery!
    And so glad you had a great weekend!

  8. I never could Dinahmow, but it is one of the funniest useless things that kids do. Eva still looks like the tiniest cat I’ve ever met – she’s even smaller than my little Tosca.

    I would have been completely knackered Z. And it takes one to know one – two, I haven’t forgotten the lovely curries and puds!

    When they all got the spoons hanging at once it was brilliant Illuminary, We all had out cameras out!
