>Monday morning

>The work is done. We’ve had a weekend of long hours without water, we’ve had leaks, we’ve made phone calls to a plumber at a football match, we’ve had all sorts of fun. At last now we seem to be almost watertight with only a broken shower as a legacy. I’m a natural-born panicker and this weekend has been … tense.

It’s been nice to have the children young adults here for the weekend. We took them to see The Glass Menagerie featuring Jessica Lange – that Tennessee Williams could write.

UPDATE: The West End Whingers have been to The Glass Menagerie and liked it. They’re absolutely right about scene between the Gentleman Caller and Laura.
