Busy Few Days.

The last of the painting is done! I am glad to say that I finished the built in cabinet in the living room the other day. It's dry and photos are back on display. We got a compliment on those the other day. When Nid's step-mother came to pick up the children for a week with her, she said she'd never seen so many framed photos in the house. Ever. Two of them are thanks to her, or we'd have a sad little display.

I went to the library the other day and got some new books. I'd had a bad run with some books that were not worth finishing, so I thought I'd try some local interest books. I've only flipped through them so far, but they look like they have potential. If nothing else, I'll learn a little bit about the area I'm living in.

Yesterday we got a package in the mail from our friend Alicia in Wisconsin. She sent Nid a Cheesehead tshirt - can't wait to see him in it. There were lots of American sweets, some Dierks TV specials and Cds, Briony got some teen mags, Cale a CD, and I got grape jelly, Dayquil and Nyquil, and the cutest cow mug ever! We also got copies of the DB bumper stickers that Alicia and Nid designed and Alicia had made last week. We're sure to be the only folks in England with these! You can see some photos on my pictures site.
