In better news...

We had a fab day out today. Got the train to Stansted Mountfichet, had a nice lunch in Yeomans Tearooms, visited the castle (and got mobbed for food by a cockerel who could jump 3 feet high and a pair of goats that finished off both the food and the paper bag). Headed up the hill to find a nice rec and then look at the windmill - and found the steward outside doing some tidying up before their open day tomorrow (normally last Sunday of the month plus bank holiday Sunday and Mondays) - and he very kindly invited us in when we said we weren't local. Dashed back down the hill to reach the station with 5 minutes to spare for our train and then got back to Shelford with just long enough for cake at the deli before they closed. Rounding off the afternoon at Gt Shelford rec.

Since Matthew's birthday we've had a lot of quiet pottering about and a couple of tummy bugs and a grotty cold. Hoping for some better health soon. Next weekend we have our (rescheduled) chocs tasting course, and a visit from Pete, Val and Alice for a very Christmas. We're having Evan and Gina to visit in a couple of weeks too then off to see my mum and dad (and enjoy the spa) at the late May bank hol. Then we've got a week in Wales in June and a week in Somerset in August and hopefully soon we'll have confirmation of days for when Matthew starts pre-school playgroup in September and we just need to sort out the wrap-around care! Phew :)
