Off to Keswick again...

The weather here is improving, I managed two loads of washing hung out and dried today, I even got some gardening done. Tomorrow I'm off to Keswick for another couple of days, camping with Julienne and her family... so that should be fun.... though possibly not that comfortable!! - I won't be online while I'm there... though I might pop into Java the nice internet cafe there!

In other news David had his first driving lesson today, which seems to have gone well... and David and Matthew both went bowling with some friends this afternoon. Tonight Christopher has decided to go to the cinema and right now Ben and Matthew are playing tennis and bowling on the Wii.

David is heading off to Canada on Friday and a week tomorrow we are all off to Barcelona... I'm really looking forward to some heat and sun...

We also got to meet our new rector and his family over the weekend, they seem very nice, but they don't officially start work here until September.

So, I'm intrigued...how do you camp? Do you have a cabin? A tent? Or what we call a trailer, and I think you call a caravan?

And Barcelona!!!! So jealous! Yes, I am. :)

It's a tent and very cold at night so I'm told.... but it's not for long so....

Yes I'm looking forward to Barcelona so much, photos coming here shortly!!!

I used to do a lot of tent camping, but now that it's just me, I usually go to a park near here that has nice (lockable) cabins. Alas, it's closed for the year due to all the floods.

Ian isn't really into camping... so I only get to sleep in a tent if I'm going alone!

-Ben and Matthew are playing tennis and bowling on the Wii.
What's a Wii?

It sure sounds like lots of travelling! Barcelona, OMG, how wonderful.

Is the new rector pleased with the house? Did you show him all the progress photos?

Wii is the new Nintendo console where you actually move to play the games using a controller, see <a href="http://wii.nintendo.com/>here</a> I think the new rector and his family are delighted with the house, they have been watching the progress on the Church website as it happened.

Thanks! Wii sounds like iToy.

I hadn't thought of that! What a good idea! That would be very exciting!

They seem to it, it is a really amazing house and it is looking very good... just not a very practical place for modern living!

Glad to hear things are drying out a bit.

I presume you go to Barcelona to warm up after the camping !!
Hope you have a lovely time in both cases.

Well, the camping was lovely, glorious sunshine on Tuesday afternoon... not even too cold at night!
But I'm certainly hoping Barcelona will be warmer than Britain has been this summer...
