I really care about our new plants so I have given the cat minder instructions on how to water them. This is really a matter of just turning the timers on so she should be able to accomplish this without difficulty. Winter may well kill the new plants but I would at least like to get them to the first snow so that I don’t have to take all the blame. If they die after that I will be able to say that the frost killed them.
Cate has had a look at the allocated seats on our flights and says that they are awful – and we are not sitting together. She has tried to change them but the flights are all fully booked. At least on the long legs we are traveling business class and as long as I am in there I don’t really care where I sit.
The trip is going to take 26 hours as we have to change planes four times – and have to spend a long time swanning about in airports. This is no fun in America as their business class lounges are awful. The food in the United lounges consists of plastic packets of cheese and crackers. The coffee is execrable. I am trying not to think about the lines for security. I will be wearing pants without a belt and shoes without laces.
I won’t be back for Halloween but Cate will be – and knowing how much she likes to participate in these types of things I have bought her a big bag of candy that she can dispense when the Trick or Treaters come to the door.
If the neighborhood gets really lucky she may dress up in her Abaya – I am sure it will be the first time they have seen one of these in this area.
