April foolishness

Although I enjoy work, the days between seem to go so quickly! It doesn't, for example, seem like any time since Friday morning, when we collected the post and opened a rather disturbing letter.

It's impossible to phrase this without sounding like the Daily Mail, but the letter - supposedly from the secretary of the Residents Association - outlined plans by the council to provide a site for gypsies and travellers directly across the road from our house. I don't have a problem with space being found for the Romany population - it's all part of the broad cultural heritage we share, but there are better ways of finding out!

Of course, at the back of our minds, we both considered that it might have been an April Fools joke (or even a piece of political propaganda?) and our suspicions were confirmed when I called the person whose name was on the letter, and she knew nothing about it. (I really hope I didn't cause any unnecessary trauma to her, too!)

Chris and Ella in the gardenEnough about pranks of dubious taste - yesterday was a wonderfully sunny day, and we gathered at Beth's Grandparents for a party to celebrate Ella's birthday in advance (being pretty-much the only day none of us are working in the next week or so).

Hopefully this is the start of the season where the children can stretch their legs without having to don coats, jumpers and gloves (and I'm not complaining about it being too hot, yet!)

In the evenings, I've mainly been chatting with pals, tidying up the studio (Christopher and I have been building a "treasure box" out of MDF, which involves creating quite a lot of sawdust) and trying to transfer videos from cameraphone to Windows Media (something of a challenge, especially when trying to dub audio from minidisc because the sound quality isn't so good) so no links today, I'm afraid!

Right.. better get on with the day!
