Back in Nottingham

Yes, we came back to Nottingham today, calling in at our other
daughter with the two children, who/whom we hadn't seen for the
past two weeks. The past 2 weeks have flown by, with being so
busy with helping out our London daughter.

Our cats, Miss D and Slayer, were very pleased to see us - both
came very quickly into our house to greet us, and they spent the
evening indoors watching TV with us (catching up on Mad Men
& Taggart, and then watching Britain's Got Talent).

Both of us felt rather odd being back in a larger and rather
empty house - empty of people - though it was nice to relax &
do things at a much slower pace. This is only a temporary state
of affairs however, as late tomorrow afternoon, we'll be joined
by L. and her two little children: Mini and Baby-with-no-name.
I'll be collecting them tomorrow at Northampton Services on the
M1, as I've done before.

Mrs C was very well organised as usual, with creating a menu plan
for the next few days. Today we had jacket potatoes with cottage
cheese (plus a generous helping of cabbage, brocolli and carrots
plus some Australian red wine - the Wine Society's Spicy Red).
Other menu ideas include home-made mushroom burgers, Abel & Cole's
veggie burgers, home-made pizza, spag bolognaise made with Quorn
mince, and then white fish cooked on top of a pile of roasted veg
(in our Remoska). In fact most of our roasting & baking is done in
the Remoska (stews, jacket & chipped spud, bread rolls, toasties,
and cakes, and salmon & tuna fillets)... and we steam-cook all our
other veg.

Mmmm...you're making me very hungry, Justin.

So no names yet eh? Do you get to provide any input? We're still struggling too!

Hi Kimber ... as regards choosing names, it's now basically a choice of two ... waiting for Cutie 2's dad to make a decision, as he's not 100% keen on either of them.

We "googled" popular girls' names for the UK, which gave us a lists of names collected by the National Office of Statistics over several years.
