And relax

This weekend, we hosted the Cabal for the first time in the new house. Well, first time ever, for me. Gosh, but there's a lot of washing up involved. And cooking, I dare say, but I only get to experience the end products (both tasty and washing-up-related) of that process.

We had lots of healthy walks, in the woods on either side of the valley and on the beach, and there were pony rides. It turns out that the Baby's extra couple of inches of height and extra several inches of width make a more significant difference than I'd realised when it comes to getting people on his back. There was also an Oysterband gig, which was really quite fab.

We also learnt that Jodie is far more ready to accept people when she's been on a walk with them, which is useful information for the future.

We failed miserably at getting remotely close to doing a fanzine, so no change there, then. Maybe if we get snowed in at New Year....

It's all the stuff that doesn't go in the dishwasher that gets annoying - and it's all that kind of thing you need to get out when catering to numbers. But by heck we appreciated it! Next time, you can give a dishwasher-loading tutorial as well so we can all be a bit more useful.

It was a wonderful weekend, thank you for having us.

But I am never, ever visiting again without The Stick. I can't believe how much I missed it, even on short walks, when coming down muddy paths I missed it most.

Jodie is lovely (and I don't like dogs!) and the boys are wonderful, if hard to mount.

Has Dr P shared his secret stash of chocs with you yet?

He has indeed, thank you!
