and a big yellow taxi took away my old man


Travel well D.
We miss you already.


PS you know that thing you joked about, that unlikely scenario whereby a kid might push in both the bathroom door locks and then shut the two doors behind them? Yeah well, about 2 hours after you left today that happened. And we did as you said and yay for Tim who climbed up as you advised and took the side off the skylight housing and climbed down and let us back in. But you know what? All we really needed to do was rotate the external handle cover plate to line the little hole up with the lock mechanism and it can be released with a skewer (as Tim discovered after all the hard work was done). Live and learn. This is when good neighbours become good friends...

Oh Sooz - you poor thing - you will laugh about this when they are all up and grown... My waterloo used to be when my bloke left the house for an extended time were an invasuion of huntsmen spiders - I am sure they used to watch us wave him off at the gate then hi -tail it for the house and be there beady eyes watching us from all the "need to go" rooms... LOL but not only us though - our next door neighboure depended on my other half to remove them from her house too... Good luck and chin up...

Was there much maternal hysteria? You sound very cool indeed about the whole episode.

Why oh why do they always choose to do it when you're flying solo?
