I think I wrote last weeks post before I went to my tennis tournament, it was good, I came third which I was happy about but I had a walkover in my last match which was annoying… at least we got to go home earlier.
On Tuesday I remembered to go and take photos of all the bulbs in the garden. Because this is the first year we have lived in this house I had no idea how many bulbs we had. The entire area we have been clearing out is a carpet of snowdrops which is so pretty. There are also a few daffodils and crocuses but hopefully there’ll be more later.
Talulah arrived to visit on Tuesday evening which was so nice. We did some cooking, went for a walk, climbed a tree, laughed and chatted a lot and I gave her her first ever tennis lesson. I am teaching her for the physical section of her gold D of E. I also gave her a worthy life experience by saving a pheasant from the weekend to teach her to pluck and gut. I think that if you are prepared to eat meat then you should be prepared to prepare it as well, otherwise it’s pretty much denial about where it came from.
Also on Wednesday we had to turn the Aga off to get it fixed, cue mass cleaning mission. I was designated hooverer of the chimney – there were a lot of cobwebs and pieces of brick that kept falling on me.
After the success of the steam trains the mothership bought a new puzzle that we started on Wednesday. I finished it on Friday while watching season 2 of Modern Family. The mothership was still laughing the next morning about Claire taking Luke to see a child phycologist because she was so worried about him turning out like his father, I think she sympathised!This puzzle was easier than the steam trains but it seemed to get harder and harder the more we did and it took longer.
