The holidays are nearly gone!

Well it's Friday morning and the holidays are almost over. We have our first quote from a moving company and are waiting on one more so we have a comparison of costs. Yesterday was a reasonably successful day as we managed to successfully transfer all the items from the shed to sensible locations within the house so my living room no longer looks like a junk yard! Matthew's friend Scott is staying the night, they talked till very late last night so I don't imagine they will surface very early this morning. I have KidsGame meeting this afternoon and then we have the closing ceremony in town tomorrow. I'm not really looking forward to it but I'm sure it will be enjoyable once we are there! Tonight we are invited to a friends house for dinner which will be lovely. Yesterday I also locked my keys in the car so I had to ask my neighbour to give me a lift to my evening meeting in Lower Hutt. My test speeech for their evaluation contest went well and Karl was able to give me a lift home and when he got home Ian retrieved my keys from the car so all is well even if the boys do think I'm a stupid woman!That's all for now more later!

It's not fair that the boys think you are stupid and very cruel for ringbark to add such a follow up comment! At least you left the keys somewhere they could be retrieved from at a later time. As for my mishap with car keys, the story gets told many times, but I threw my car keys in to Raby Mere when we were feeding the ducks some bread. It wasn't a deliberate act. I had the key ring over one of my fingers and the bread in the palm of my hand, and somehow they throwing action resulted in both bread and keys leaving my possession. The keys were never seen again! So, at least you now have access to your car again!

Re: Cruel!
I'd never heard about the Raby keys before. If Viv is silly enough to say the boys think she is a stupid woman, then as a loyal husband it is my duty, no less, to support her in what she says.

I smiled, could even hear you say the above in my head. I have no argument against the loyal husband bit. There are not enough of those breed of husbands around. I'm sure you will hear the story of the Raby keys many times in the future. Ben tells the tale many times! It was one of his very first episodes of having fun and laughter at my expense, so he doesn't let anyone forget! It was actually a nightmare for me at the time, as I not only had Ben with me, but also Bob's Mum who was very bad with her senile dementia then. So, I didn't even have the option of walking back. Thankfully, when we knocked on the door at the white house (close to where the tea room used to be) the people there were very helpful, after they had got over being disturbed during Sunday breakfast.
