Sorry I went silent for so long!

March/April update:

  • We had a bin audit because someone had reported that the bins were a mess and we actually had someone from the council turn up for this. It was pretty hilarious because all the people who actually showed up to the audit already recycled as much as we could. The council rep made noises about having food recycling back but we told her that wasn't going to happen because until they collect all our non-perishable recycling every single time then we are not going to stick out old/decomposing food to attract rats and foxes.

  • I had a smart meter installed so I can keep better track of my electricity use.

  • Saw the version of Twelfth Night with Tamsin Greig as Malvolia, which was incredible. Also saw Dan Radcliffe in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. Probably should have re-read Hamlet first as I'm not that familiar with it but it was still very funny.
  • We went back to Bisley House for Dad's birthday meal as he liked it so much last year. This time I arrived by myself, although I was still puffed out at the sheer climb.

  • My sister confirmed that she was expecting a baby boy.

How exciting! A baby boy. When is he due to arrive?

Trash and recycling is an issue here, as well. We have special bins for organics. Sometimes the raccoons get into them, but they get into the professional dumpsters as well.

Seems like there is no easy answer with rats and raccoons - they're smart and they're survivalists.

He was born on 26 September, two days before my birthday. My sister had an optional Caesarian this time so it was all planned and everything went fine, no stress at all compared to when Madeleine was born!

Yeah, rats and foxes are so smart. You can only do so much.

Yay for coming back to LJ!


I've been reading and commenting, just haven't had the impetus to post. I have another post scheduled for tomorrow though. :)

It's nice to 'see' you - and congrats on the nephew. Are there photos?

And I did not know that there was a Twelfth Night with Tamsin Greig as Malvolia - I now feel I must remedy this!

I don't have photos on this laptop at the moment but I will try and get a couple. :)

It was part of the NT Live broadcast series, hopefully you'll be able to find something.

Baby <3 <3

Nephews and nieces are wonderful!
