My parents set off for Germany again this morning. We've had a nice week and got quite a few things done around house and garden.

I am now behind with almost everything else, including lj reading.

But hey, instead of catching up, the Marquis and I are going to visit Third and Chairman tonight, to go to the Re-enactors' Fair tomorrow.

Work on Sunday.

My parents are visiting! Yay!

I picked them up at the station at noon. They brought my cello in its new case with them. Very exciting! It's beautiful - new strings and bridge and spike and string-attachment, the varnish is darkish chocolatey (rather than reddy) brown. The case is gigantic, but not heavy. It has backpack straps and little wheels.

Actually I am a bit lost for words. *looks happy*

Dampness

It's raining today. So my knees were right last night with their soreness -- they usually get sore when there is a change in atmospheric pressure, which is not good for someone living in England. :-|

Initially I was wondering if Tuemi and friend had packed the good weather up in their suitcases, but they claim not -- too much other stuff. I saw them off to the station earlier on. Sad to see them go, but also nice to get back to sorting out the house some more.

In fact the sorting out that needs to be done encompasses some fairly major problem resolution. While Tuemi and friend were visiting, we discovered that our shower leaks into the kitchen. Yesterday the Marquis decided to investigate. He took the side of the bath and discovered that 12kg (about 24lb) of wet plaster had fallen off the wall behind the bath and lain wetly on top of the floor board, which had begun to rot underneath its damp load. The Marquis shovelled out the dirt and went online to investigate what was to be done about wet-rot... Now we just have to hope that the Land People respond soon to our email.

I was going to inaugurate my nice new birthday brolly -- a huge contraption with photos of Nuremberg all over it -- but I forgot it in the house and am having to make do with my little fold-up umbrella that I usually cart around with me. *shrugs*

I worked on my website last night, while Tuemi and her friend were watching DVDs. This morning Tuemi asked me if I was narked with them. Um... not really. I was very tired what with the early start packing the Marquis off to Carlisle, and my back/neck is very sore from getting used to new office and job and all (and consequently I was feeling a little sorry for myself). So I'm sorry that I gave the impression I was grumpy. I was just exhausterated. Will try and be more sociable tonight. ;-)

Anyway... today is graduation day here and I need to get dressed up in hood and gown, something I always enjoy. :-)

The new kettle that my office sharer, Nix, has bought for us has just boiled and it's time for a cuppa of genuine English Breakfast tea bought in France, as it were.

... here's a very brief hello.

Hello, lj, have been neglecting you, as well as my website (still under construction) and various friends. Been really busy, what with moving house, having my mum and aunt to visit, going to the Fellowship Festival, starting a new job and getting visited by my sister Tuemi and her friend. I was going to update my lj yesterday, but the laundry needed doing and the weather was very nice and I made use of our new garden.

Anyway, I'll fill in the details bit by bit, but for the moment I'd better get on with some work.

*waves and signs off*

Got back from the Fellowship Festival earlier today. Very tired... Trains were delayed as usual.

Tomorrow my new job starts, and the Marquis is off until Friday to work back up north. :-( I shall miss him.

Thursday [livejournal.com profile] tuemi arrives with friend for a visit.

Busy time clearly not over yet, but I shall endeavour to start filling in some gaps soon.

*yawns and crawls to bed*

Hm. I still haven't got round to starting to learn javascript and I haven't personalised my lj yet.

But, I have hoovered the house and done some laundry (oops, some needs fetching out of the dryer, I think!).

Parrot Knight is currently visiting and we're going to get a curry for dinner.

And to top of this random ramble with another unconnected thought:

Welcome, Pellegrina. It was the Explorers that gave it away, as well as the pretty bird. (I will have to get myself a piccy, too, methinks.)
