And this is yet another 'special gift' left by outgoing guests yesterday. Carefully folded up to hide the evidence of a mis-spent evening. Amazingly, having crammed it into our industrial washer wearing armoured rubber gloves, the duvet washed up as clean as a whistle, and sweet smelling as a spring day. Laundry technology is a wonderful thing.
Eldest has beetled off to an auction/sale 50 miles away with his Grandfather, in the hope of claiming a 'scrap silver metal' bargain for onward dealing. Alerted to the presence of a few 'lots' of scrap precious metals, they were up with the lark and off to view and bid this morning. If the big boy carries on at this rate he will be a complete wheeler dealer by the time he is 20. Perhaps that's not all bad.
Youngest has secured a 6 weeks holiday job offer this morning at a local Holiday Centre, to start in 3 weeks. Just time for his boys' post A level holiday in Budapest then work, work, work. Keep them busy has always been my motto!
