I came back to find an email from my new employer, who are having a conference in my second week (I'm not sure exactly what that means - I haven't seen an agenda) which may include something very squeeful - I'll let you know when I've confirmed that I've not misinterpreted. Also 2 kitties who were very loving and purring and pleased to see us. Charlie even let me hug her - normally, she wiggles out of my arms pretty quick. I really missed my kitties! And oh praise for having R4 again - there was no reception at all in the Lake District, which particularly sucked whilst being ill!
The house is a tip but I've managed to tidy upstairs this afternoon and will now head down to have a crack at downstairs. And Tesco shopping. And bills. Ah, it's good to be home :)
