Today’s guest picture comes from son Tony who has been shooting at the moon with his new camera. Unfortunately the copy that he sent me is undersized but it still looks good.
Mrs Tootlepedal is taking the colour pattern for her crochet blanket from a website which posts the design for the next fifteen rows each week so she was pleased to have finished this week’s ration before the next lot came on line.
She will need to grow bigger arms for next week’s shot.
There is not much in the way of a post today as we got up well before dawn to got to Edinburgh to try to be of assistance to Matilda’s father and mother as they took the final steps in moving house today. Their new house is not yet ready so they had a complicated scheme of putting some things in store and taking some things to a flat where they are camping until the new house is ready.
This meant a lot of filling of boxes and trips in the car to the store and the flat and part of our duties was to keep Matilda entertained while this was going on.
We went to a cafe for beans on toast and then armed warfare broke out.
Matilda ready for battle….
…and grandpa ready to resist.
It was all go out there.
Mrs Tootlepedal was the official, war correspondent who took the pictures.
Then Matilda went to nursery and we helped her parents pack, tidy and clean before we had the privilege of collecting Matilda from nursery and bringing her home.
Mrs Tootlepedal did great work on fridge defrosting and cleaning while I played Pelmanism and snap with Matilda as the work went on. We were using a pack of cats and kittens cards for our game and I made the acquaintance of the Maine Coon, a cat that I had never heard of but which I find really does exist.
We all had fun and in the end there was only one carload left to go by the time that we had to leave to catch our train home.
We arrived home nearly 15 hours after we had left, tired but satisfied.
No chance of a flying bird at all.
