mums and dads

I'm very pleased to say that my parents spent a day on their own touring Cambridge yesterday and emerged unscathed. They took an open top bus tour and saw all the sights, and even stopped for an afternoon tea, I say tally ho pip pip. Paul's Mum and Dad drove up from Kent at lunchtime and met my parents for the very first time that evening. It went swimmingly; everyone liked each other and a good time was had by all. Needless to say, I had an excellent night's sleep last night and feel like a million bucks today.

My future in-laws have very kindly offered to play tour guides for Mom and Dad while we're at work, and for that, I am eternally grateful. I had visions of them wandering around Huntingdon trying to find something to occupy their time for three days. There's only so much you can see and do at WH Smith and Sainsbury's, really. They are off to the North Norfolk coast today, perhaps with a stop at Sandringham. Jealous. My office is not nearly that exciting or scenic.

One more day of work, then we're off to London on Thursday, Friday we take care of last minute wedding details and entertain our many guests, and then Saturday we're up to something. Can't remember what exactly, but I think it involves a nice lunch out and I probably have to shave my legs at some point beforehand. In the meantime, it's back to editing a UI and putting together something resembling a user guide. If it makes absolutely no sense or contains things like random song lyrics, I do apologise.
