Wasn't that an old McCartney song? I could look it up, but I'm too lazy to do that, lol...
Spent the morning making the house look unlived-in: beds all made up, dirty clothes put in the hamper, clean towels out on the towel racks, dirty dishes stowed in the dishwasher, clean dishes dried and put away - does this stuff fool anyone? Well, maybe it maintains the illusion that two OLD people live here who don't have anything to do except vacuum and dust and mow the lawn and wash the dishes--it is to laff, eh?
The people came thru, a nice young couple with two small boys (the boys looked to be maybe 3 and 6, something like that). They spent nearly half-an-hour here, which seemed a goodly amount of time to me, unlike a couple of 'fly by' visits we've had. Today is a holiday in the UK, and I got the impression that they are trying to see several places today as it's back to work tomorrow. Time will tell.
Meanwhile, with this spic'n'span house, us old-timers really didn't have anything to do for the rest of the afternoon (lol) so we took a two-hour walk. I remembered to take the camera with me - always a plus - but haven't had a chance to download the pix or cull thru them - in other words, I won't be blogging them tonight but I'll try to do them tomorrow. It was just shots around the village. There were street-parties last Friday for The Wedding, and some of the banners and flags are still out. Plus it was a really clear, sparkling day, lots of sunshine and a gusty breeze - I love it when the humidity's down and the air is clear.
And that was about it. More details tomorrow, when I tell you about the walk around town. Um, village, I mean village!
Goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are!
