day off with (or without) alarm

It's been another glorious day, and I've been fortunate enough to spend it all with the family. Unfortunately Beth and Ella seem to have caught colds from somewhere, which has hampered their enjoyment of the warm outdoors, but Christopher and I have certainly made the most of it.

In fact, there were grey clouds and a chilly breeze as we made our way to the car shop in Stevenage, where I'd arranged for the car alarm to be sorted out. We arrived a little after nine, and, once we'd dropped off the keys, and Christopher had taken a close look at the Peugeot 307 Convertible - he's got a 'thing' at the moment about cars that have retractable roofs - we wandered around the Old Town, where we chatted, played, and (hopefully) he learned about as disparate subjects as churches, pendula (penduli?) and the planets of the solar system.

Once we'd received our car back (with the suggestion that we leave our sun visors folded up, and the headrests folded down when we leave the car parked) we returned home, to relax for a while (and help Christopher write his blog) before leaving for the birthday party of a family friend.

Fortunately, we were able to play outside, which was in good shade, so I'm sure we'll all sleep very well tonight!

Back to work tomorrow - I'm aching a bit now. As Beth said, I'm in my 30s, so I can hardly be expected to keep up with the children!
