A quick Thursday post

Claire had the day off today and Emily went back to school today. I spent most of the morning at home doing housework and then went in to town for another contact lens check. I've been having problems with my lenses smeering and not being able to see clearly. They've changed the solution I use which will hopefully eliminate the build up on the lenses. I'm hoping it works because I don't enjoy wearing them at the moment.

While I was in town there were three fire engines at the top of London Road. I needed to cross because I wanted to go into WH Smiths (a newsagents). The trucks were outside Smiths so I asked the policeman on duty whether I could get in to the shop. He said he thought so but then had another look and said no it looked like it was shut. As I was walking down the road I heard someone telling a friend that it was actually Smiths that had been on fire!! As Jon was saying with all the books/newspapers/magazines etc in there it would have gone up quite quickly. Not sure how much damage has been done but if it's closed for any length of time it's going to be sorely missed!

Hugh went up to London to see Sarah today and Jon took him to the station at lunch time. He suggested that we go to The Broadway for lunch and we asked Claire if she'd like to come with us. We hadn't eaten there since the pub changed hands but the food was still as good as ever. We had homemade burgers, chips and salad with onion rings and garlic bread on the side. It was so full I don't think any of us actually finished what was on our plates. Claire and Jon at The Broadway

There was a message from the Cat Protection Center on our phone this afternoon letting us know that they have different 4 month old kittens, who had been reserved before but the people are no longer able to take them. They were asking if we would like to go and see them - silly question! I tried to call back this afternoon but the Center closes at 4pm and we just missed them. Emily has an inset day tomorrow (a day off school for teacher training) so we're hoping to go down in the morning and see the kittens. No idea what they'll be like but we're looking forward to finding out. As we've told Emily, if they're not what she is looking for we don't have to take one. Last time we were there they told us February / March tends to be the start of kitten season so she wouldn't have long to wait.

At lunch time tomorrow, Emily is going to a friends house for a mid day sleepover ;o) They're going to put on their pyjamas, have duvets in the lounge and watch movies. Sounds fun to me!!
