February 10th, my mother's birthday. The rain has finally stopped, and Salty is very happy about that. Mas spent more time cutting up trees, and I went for a long walk to keep up the exercise. Later I began reading 'The Tenderness of Wolves' which looks as if it will be a good read. In the evening we watched an episode of New Tricks.
Today we went to St. Albans and met Tania and Robert at Sazios for lunch and had a bottle of wine to celebrate Robert's recent business achievements, and had a nice time talking before we left and picked up some shopping and drove home again.
Once home I spoke to Diane for a while, and then Eileen phoned saying she and Alex would be going to New York next week, and did we want them to bring anything back. Later I thought I should have said "A fist full of dollars". Mas is still treating himself to episodes of Battlestar Gallactica, and I can recommend it for wives who need a bit of peace and quiet.
