Max and i spent a bit of the morning revving the car up; he diagnosed black-black smoke to be less bad than blue-black. (Well he would know, if anyone can read smoke signals from an exhaust pipe, he can.) We stuck some cleaner in the fuel and then needed to drive it. So we went. We think, having come back today, that it is slightly improved but it’s going to have to go into a garage, something is clearly NOT right.
Had a nice time, shortened as it was and got to see everyone. Girls had a ball playing retro-amiga games, or something of the sort. Maddy is very into the Egypt Cross sections book, they all went mental around their uncle and his girlfriend and Josie and Rowan faced off and tried to work out who was alpha-baby. (It’s Rowan 😉 )
Amelie, Josie and i are down with some lurgy now; i feel a bit shivery and spaced out, Amelie itched all night and managed to wake up every hour at 22 minutes past, for the whole night 🙄 So some sleep is now in order i think. Josie is managing the odd set of step, normally about 3 at a time and babbling away but a bit grumpy to say the least.
Can’t decide what to do with the week. Amelie is adamant she doesn’t want to go to nursery so i guess we’ll have to see how the wind blows.
