Late last night I took The Engineer and Pony Girl to the airport for their red-eye flight to the Midwest. This is the first time they have gone off without me and the house is very quiet indeed. They will be gone for 5 whole days. It was a bit of a last minute thing really. You see a little over a year ago, the Engineer had a rather bad accident with his hand. After all this time, it still has not healed correctly. I am not convinced that the doctors did the job as they should and I have been nagging him a bit to have it properly looked after.
Fortunately for us, The Engineer's father is an Orthopedic Surgeon, and a darn good one. So, He has gone "home" for a surgery and taken Pony Girl along to spend time with Grandparents, cousins, Uncles and Aunts. That leaves me here in the little green cottage to look after things.
I had a real proper sleep-in this morning, followed by a very leisurely coffee. Now, what to do with myself. The only real plan I have, is to give the cottage a good scrubbing today. Whilst this may not sound like a 'not a care in the world gal on her own' sort of activity, there is method to my madness. You see, if I do a good tidy now, I will be able to bask in the cleanliness for 5 whole days! Yes, perhaps I am a nutter, ah well.
I'm off now to take care of business. Have a lovely weekend all!
