Majorca was very nice, thank you for asking. Eighteen or so degrees all week, a couple of days of rain, we pottered round little towns, ate tapas and paella and slept. Siesta is such a civilized habit, isn't it?
Now, we are home. Which is lovely, particularly since Kate and Vic have been staying whilst we've been away and have gone through the house like a dose of salts - it's fantastically clean and tidy. We have also been left with instructions to ask them for help if we need it. B reckons his mother is a Chaos Demon - fantastic amounts of energy, so long as you have the right controlling spells.
Benign Accountant is coming round this evening for a Council Of War about the business. There is no change in our situation, but we both feel more able to cope with whatever is going to happen.
Currently we are having lunch and watching In The Night Garden on the BBC iPlayer.
Leo loves it. And B and I have become mildly obsessed. Did you know that it's narrated by Derek Jacobi? I keep having this terrible vision of him having to justify himself after each recording, in a perfect RP accent, saying something like:
"Did you see my Hamlet? It was acclaimed, you know!"
And I reckon that Iggle Piggle is having an illicit relationship with Macca Pacca. It's Zeddy and Parsnip all over again. Iggle Piggle probably shoots up in the Green Room before each episode, munching on a fat cigar and getting his sleazy showbiz lawyer on the phone to renegotiate his contract terms, whilst he drops ash on the dressing room floor and Macca Pacca manicures his toe-nails.
The poor old Tombleyboos on the other hand are having to dress in a cupboard down the hall and share a mirror. Macca Pacca is only trying to use whatever skills he possesses to climb up the showbiz ladder - but I think Iggle Piggle is just exploiting him and he doesn't have the worldly wisdom to see it.
It will all end in tears, you see if it doesn't.
Anyway. I'm out of internet time now, as B is about to switch off all the electricity in order to tail in the new kitchen sockets. If I don't post for a few days it's because my solar charger hasn't arrived yet.
For today, that is all.
