Today was the first day of mid-shift (11pm to 7am) for Bob. He prepared by staying up until 3am Saturday night/Sunday morning, slept in til almost 10, then took a nap Sunday afternoon.

We were starting breakfast this morning when Bob called to say he couldn't come home til at least 9:30 because of the thick fog. The commander put out some warning and day shift wasn't allowed to come in and night shift wasn't allowed to go home until the fog lifted. Yay! So I thought it would be nice for him to come home to a clean house, so we kicked it into gear. Tidied and vacuumed both living rooms and dining room and the hall. Started laundry and the dishwasher, and cleaned out the coat closet.

Bob got home at 10min til 10am and showed me a picture of the fog. (It wasn't foggy at all here, but there was a heavy frost). Then we all bundled up and went for a walk to the store in Cheveley. It was warming up fast, and just as clear as ... something really clear. ahem. We are guessing it is close to a mile to the store. It made a really nice walk, and we all enjoyed it except Cedwryck, who complained and piddled and fell down 3 times. I bought a loaf of bread at the store and we walked back home. I enjoyed getting to see all the details of the houses and gardens as we walked by; even driving at 30 MPH I miss so much. Bob took some pictures, but was too sleepy when we got home to edit or post them. Maybe tonight or tomorrow.

Ella is supposed to be napping in the playroom, which is a new thing, so I better go check on her and make sure she isn't too noisy for Bob in the next room.
