Saturday's Entry

Bad Things Happen in Threes

Well hopefully that's true, and also hopefully it works for Kim and I as a single unit.

On Friday Kim discovered that someone had spent over GBP 1000 on her credit card on perfume, ... in Scotland! She spent a good part of the morning ringing people to cancel the card and make sure that any regular payments are transfered to one of my cards.

On Friday morning my car broke down on the M3. I spent most of the morning getting rescued, taken to a garage and then eventually getting a hire car. The replacement car is a Fiat Punto which is a tin can on wheels and it scrunches up my back! [Sorry ot all Punto drivers who love their car, but it just doesn't work for me]

On Friday a child opened a car door into Kim's car whilst we were parked at a service station on the way to Birmingham. The rear driver-side door is slightly bent and has a paint scratch. Since this is the first scratch on the car Kim is trying to get it repaired on the other car's insurance.

The rest of the weekend was OK!

Sunday's Entry

Sunday was our 6th wedding anniversary.

We eventually shared a half bottle of champaigne when we got back to Southampton. Kim gave me a stone egg on a stand. I gave her various candles and a glass paperweight.

We were busy planning a trip for later in the year - a week on a canal boat doing "The Four Counties Ring". We checked up which pubs were happy with a Morris side dancing / singing / drinking there and looked for places to water the boats. One village we checked out was called Wheelock. My first responce was that it should be near the village of Skidding ;) Actually the name comes from the Welsh for benddy river! There are three pubs close to the canal, all three were friendly and all three were happy to have a morris side. I guess we'll just have to sample the beer at all three and pick the one with the tastiest beer :)

Blessed Be
