Hopefully that wasn't what I said in my last post. I'm sorry to have neglected you, but I did have a great time with my visitors. Lots of late nights playing dopey games and chatting (unfortunately they were followed by early mornings for little ol' me, as my dear children like to get up before sunrise...). I'm not much of a tour guide, but we did manage to stop by a couple of tourist spots as well as beaches, boat rides, gardens and the like.After the second set of visitors left, we then had to drag the kids off to Sacramento for two nights. I really liked what little I saw of Sacramento: much different atmosphere to the cities in the LA region.
A couple of firsts: we used a complete stranger as a babysitter AND I wore a dress for the first time since my wedding day. All so I could clap and look proud while my husband picked up an award.
Talking of my husband, I changed the name on the blog header (just in case you were wondering if you were in the right place) as he has been taking the Mickey out of the name "Lil' d" constantly ever since I told him about this wee blog.
Translation of the day:
UK English: to take the Mickey or take the Michael = to tease or ridicule in US English
The phrase originates from Cockney rhyming slang, but I'll just say that this is the version you can use in polite company and leave it at that...
Ok, I had better go and work on our tax return (yes, I know the deadline is fast approaching). Normal posting should resume shortly. Take care,
