Mam and Dad came for dinner today, and Mam made the "sausage, egg and bacon pie" she makes that I absolutely adore! She made it with minted new potatoes, and baked beans. And it was delicious!
While dinner was cooking, and after dinner (before they left) Mam and I got some more of my CDs labeled, since we can carry on now we have the new labeling machine. LOL! We're getting through them nicely - same goes for the movies - but I "REALLY" can't wait for them all to be done. For one thing, it would be nice to be able to look for a CD I fancy playing, find it, and put it on without having to have someone find it for me (same goes for DVDs and videos). For another thing, it would be nice to know everything's sorted out and in its place.
Speaking of sorting stuff out...
Mam couldn't finish the garden today because it's too wet. We've had rain all day (and on and off Monday and Tuesday). This weekend is her weekend staying over though, so "hopefully" the sun will come back for her to finish the job.
In a couple of weeks time, I'm going to go with Mam and get the other bits and pieces we need to finish inside, and the stuff we need to do the fencing in the garden. All being well, most - if not all - the stuff should be done before we go to Carl and Rachel's wedding in about six weeks time. Any that's not can then be finished when we get home. So, we're definately still on track for our goal of being finished before Mam starts her cooking course in September. :)
I finished reading "Flat Stanley" by Jeff Brown last night. It's not a very long book, and I couldn't sleep, so... *Shrugs*... I can't think of anything better to do when you can't sleep, can you? Anyway, the book - for those who don't know - is about a boy named "Stanley Lambchop" and the things that happen to him after a bulletin board falls on him, and he becomes flat. It's an interesting, and - in places - funny childrens' story. Yeah, I know I'm not exactly a child any more, but I love my "childrens' stories" and probably always will. And, this story was no exception. :)
On the subject of books...
As I mentioned about a week and a half ago, Mam is reading "Charlotte's Web" to me. She read some more today, before she went home. We're about half way through it now. I expect we'll get some more read over the weekend (especially if the promised sun doesn't show up).
I think that covers everything for today. So... Enjoy whatever's left of your day. :)
