At Sixes and Sevens...

...that's what it's like around here just now and probably will be for the next six or seven weeks. 

We have house guests.  My older daughter and her family are living with us while they are in between houses.  The house they have just bought is being completely renovated.  It's a big job and will take a while.  So things like blogging will be taking a backseat while we fall into a routine and things become less hectic.

Saturday afternoon my younger daughter and I took the boys and the dogs out for some fresh air and also, more importantly, so that they could burn up some energy.

We took them up to a local reservoir.  This reservoir is in a lovely place, high up in the foothills of the Pennines and it is always windy up there.

Ideal for windsurfers as you can see.  Ideal too for little boys to run around, throw stones, climb, get dirty and generally let off steam.

Also I've been having a couple of computer problems.  The mouse kept freezing.  However, after much fussing, common sense finally came to the rescue.  I fully recharged the mouse batteries and now everything is back in working order!  Like I said things are at sixes and sevens just now but all will be resolved in the fullness of time.  Or so they say anyway!

Even though it may get hectic at times, these will be memories you will cherish later....

From the pictures, it looks like they are having a wonderful time burning energy....Kids do need that, don't they...

And now I have to google "at sixes and sevens". I love to "hear" you speak because I continually hear a new expression.

The reservoir looks like a wonderful place to spend the hours.

OK, got it. I kind of used context cues to figure it out, but I wanted to be sure.

So wonderful that you have room to roam. Beautiful countryside. We've had lots of wind this week with dust so it's been rather icky. Enjoy your time. Best wishes, Tammy

Sounds like a busy sort of fun. I feel a bit all over the place too. Thank you for your kind words about our sweet dog, Buster.
