A week in summary

Very strong winds. Rain. Rain and wind. More wind. A bit sunny. Windy again. A bit more rain. Wind. Much of the time the wind has been around 25mph, as measured by Michael, who has a weather station on Clancy J.

Making the most of our free cinema tickets, courtesy of Tesco Club Card points, we saw two films in three days. "Oblivion", a fascinating sci-fi mystery, with multiple Tom Cruises and one Morgan Freeman...

A veteran assigned to extract Earth's remaining resources begins to question what he knows about his mission and himself.

...and "Olympus has fallen", an action-packed suspense thriller with one very beaten-up Gerard Butler, and Morgan Freeman again.
Disgraced former Presidential guard Mike Banning finds himself trapped inside the White House in the wake of a terrorist attack; using his inside knowledge, Banning works with national security to rescue the President from his kidnappers.

We came back to St Albans yesterday, for a stay of ten days in which I will be giving Jess as much driving practice as possible before her test on the last day of the month. Ironically, the weather as we left Yelvertoft was sunny and still - as it is today! - and the forecast is for the better weather to continue for the rest of this week,

only to return to what it was next week when we return to the boat.

Still, there are things to be done here at the house, as always, so we won't get bored! And it's always good to spend time with the kids.

Said The Maiden took part in a charity gig last night, although the venue had serious problems with the sound system, and the girls found it hard to be heard against the noise of the bar adjacent to the stage. But there were lots there, and I'm sure a good deal of money was raised for a good cause.
