Holiday week.. and signage!

It's been a lovely Easter Week, with plenty going on; we met up with Beth's latest surrogate family on Easter Monday, and Beth and I went into London on Tuesday with Suzanne - and to meet up with a bunch of old and new friends - for the excellent Comedy At The George night on the Strand as an early birthday celebration.

Beth had a hospital appointment yesterday - hopefully the last of the ones related to her post-birth complications - and I went to the doctors' today, because I've had rather an annoying ache in my neck, jaw and ears for the past couple of weeks. The doctor suspects it's probably a virus, and I should take anti-inflammatories until it goes.. obviously if it lingers, I have to go back (but I'm certainly hoping it doesn't!) To be honest, it's not quite as debilitating as it was, so I can't really complain.

We also went to a craft afternoon organised by Lenni and Chris's schools' Family Workers - the first warm afternoon in a long time (we were playing in the snow on Easter Day!) and I've finally completed some of the DIY jobs that have long needed doing, including replacing the taps in the downstairs toilet with the same sort we now have in the bathroom, putting a new light fitting at the top of the stairs (something of a nightmare, because the Volt Stick I used to check for live cables was reporting electricity when there wasn't any!) to illuminate a full-length mirror that we bought today.

In other news, Beth got a bit of a surprise this afternoon.. on her way to Asda, she spotted a street sign near where we live being changed for what appeared to be a new one. The net result is that at one end of the street it says "Falconers Road", while the other now has "Falconers Way." Since I love trivia of such a sort (and it was quite a pleasant afternoon!), I took off on my bike to take some photographs... click the pics below for the evidence.

Falconers Road... at one endFalconers Way... at the other!

Maybe it was an honest mistake... or perhaps it was a jape by someone trying to confuse pizza delivery companies and lost airport passengers..? I've written to the paper, anyway!
