The children were out so when they got home... they cooked their own dinner.
...and this morning... a lie in!
Why so lazy? Well Friday was the summer ball and my wife and I put on our glad-rags and went out to party:

It was the first time that the two of us have been to a formal event together so we got dressed up and put on our dancing shoes and had a great time. Even tonsillitis couldn't stop me (although I did wimp out earlier than I would have liked due to a distinct lack of air).
The theme for the evening was 'Best of British' and there was all sorts of different food throughout the night to reflect it; from fish and chips to pie and mash, from smoked salmon and oysters to roast beef and pork. Around the event were coconut shies, bumper-cars, old style telephone boxes, classic cars, deck chairs and all sorts of Brit-centric items. The alcohol was included in the ticket price, as was the food and entertainment. Speaking of entertainment, there was a Beatles tribute band, a Queen tribute band (the wigs were PRICELESS!!!), a disco and a string quartet during the main dinner.
It was an excellent evening and I am determined to go to a few more events now that I have the correct uniform.
KITTENS! I have obviously been going on about kittens at work too much because a friend f mine has just become the owner of a cute little black and white kitten called Tizz. It is funny because, as I am typing, I have my resident lap warmer on duty:

Yep, Charmmy is taking up her usual spot and preventing me typing as quickly as I could if I could use my left arm too.
I slept really well last night.
Maybe the break is doing me good.
See you from the chair in the corner!
