I had to Skype mum from the library this morning because I was expecting a delivery. It’s a birthday/Christmas/Hannakah present for Mirinda from Bob.

It arrived while I was Skyping. I considered sending Emma out to receive it but figured she’d just eat the box…so I went instead.

After getting off Skype, I wrestled the box into submission – it was a particularly secure package – and recycled most of it. Then, finally, I hung it between the two plum tree pictures…which reminds me.

India Jane, where we bought the plum tree pictures (and our dining chairs) is undergoing a change of name. I don’t know why but it will now be called Colony Interiors. Personally I think most of the appeal of the place was the name…but I could be wrong. I assume it will still sell the same sort of stuff.

This hanging is merely temporary as I actually need to fix it to the wall rather than hang it from the picture rail but it gives a good idea.

After lunch we headed up to the park where we saw a LOT of dogs. In fact it was the complete opposite of yesterday when we saw none. And I think most of them were male. Emma kept getting a bit upset when I picked her up and dogs kept hanging around us. It was all a bit unsatisfying for all but Freya who just had fun.

In the afternoon I headed back up the back of the garden to start laying the temporary floor for the tool sheds. I was ably assisted by the girls who realised how much I needed them to sit in front of me as often as possible.

I didn’t manage to finish but I laid three rows. The next rows will have to be different bricks (the first ones were leftover pavers) and require a little more digging out first.

Mirinda was in Loughborough today (tonight and tomorrow) at some sort of management thing which doesn’t appear to have any communications. She eventually squeezed a text through by squatting in a corner of the bathroom, the only place she could find even a skerrick of a signal. I guess technology has yet to reach Leicestershire.

(I’m not sure if it’s indicative but the Luddites smashed up a lace making machine in a mill at Loughborough in 1816 during the general push to save jobs.)
