|Mason on his sleepover.|
Friday night we had Mason over to John's house where we were house/dog sitting, for a sleep over. We had a great time and he really enjoyed not having Finley about so as he put it "I can have some peace". I'm really astonished by how his reading has come on, when it was bedtime, Sandra found one of the girls books to read him a story and he insisted on reading it to us! The words which he didn't know he read in syllables and then discovered what the word was. He also added proper expression to what he read putting some excitement or questioning in the appropriate places, most impressive for a six year old.

Allen and Jean had returned back to the UK from Cyprus during the week and we had them to visit on Sunday. With our car situation which, as I explained last week had altered our plans for going to London for the Olympic games, well we were going with Jean and Allen but they have also cancelled so we are both going to have a few weeks with nothing planned (yeah right!!). I think Allen is already booked up helping another friend of his with some Park home stuff but we may at some point look into having a day down there on the train just to say we have been.
We had a super day with them and out for a meal in the evening before watching England's demise in the football which I had recorded. It's funny how you can just start up again where you left off with good friends.

Well this morning John, Fiona, Jessica and Melissa arrived back from their holiday in Rhodes. They are all browner than we are but I suspect they have made the most of their fortnight in the sun, and who could blame them. The upshot of this is though that Sanny and I are now once again homeless, awwww. The good news is that we had everything already to move into in the paddock at home and once more we are gypsies!
