I went to bed late. It’s unsettling, being Sageless. Then I couldn’t sleep because I was too warm, and just dozed, on and off, half the night, before being finally woken soon before 6 o’clock by heavy rain. I shut the windows, but couldn’t sleep, and before long, Squiffany called through politely, asking if it was time to get up yet? I invited her through, she unwrapped the pound that the tooth fairy had exchanged for her tooth – this has been a subject for excitement all day. She took it to the party and told all her young friends about the experience of having a loose tooth, because she’s the first of her circle of friends to have this happen.
After I left her at the party, I went on to Flixton Air Museum, for the Open Day, which was a special one because of the 60th anniversary commemoration of the Battle of Britain. It was, of course, the more special because of the blog-meet between me and Eddie 2-Sox, with his son Sam. It took us a while to find each other – not that it’s a very large place, but we were both looking in the wrong places. I recognised them at once – or at least, I hoped so. I mean, it’s a bit awkward to greet people with confidence when you’ve only seen photos before. Anyway, he recognised me right back, so that was fine and we had a chat, not as long as I’d have liked though, as I had to go and fetch Squiffany from her party at 1 o’clock. We did a bit of shopping and came home to find Dave was fretting, bless him, because he thought I was ignoring him*.
The Sage arrived home from his visit to Gloucestershire and Wiltshire soon afterwards, so that was all right, and Weeza emailed to say they were on the way home from their visit to Phil’s parents, and that Zerlina is getting over her chickenpox. Al and family are due home later. A mother hen likes to know all her chicks are safe.
All in all, a splendid day. And the special topping, with sparkly frosting, was that the new levels on iAssociate 2 came out today, which I discovered around 7am. Sad to say, I was unable to resist plugging away at the first of these until it was completed. I wasn’t alone, and am only just in the first 100 to finish. 55 out of 42,389 overall, however. I will resist being competitive though, what’s the point in finishing quickly? Actually, they are getting easier. It used to be that I didn’t know a lot of the answers and had to look them up, but I haven’t needed to do that for quite a few levels. They need to get a few really tough challenges out to keep everyone interested for longer.
Tomorrow, Squiffany is going with the birthday girl to her second treat, to Pleasurewood Hills in Lowestoft. Dilly is planning to go too, I think, in which case I’ll look after Pugsley. I need to check that Zerlina is sufficiently recovered to go to the childminder, or else I’ll be looking after her too. So I had better make sure I get more sleep tonight than I did last night.
I absolutely assure you that I won’t give up blogging for Facebook. I can’t think why I would, they have a different feel.
*I know you were joking, Dave, it’s all right.**
**Or were you? Hmm.
