It was Archie's first day at the High School today so a bit nerve-racking for everybody but it turned out o.k. He looked very smart in his new school uniform. We went into town to get some groceries and check out the library. I borrowed The Return Of the King on DVD as I enjoyed it at the cinema and would like to see it again (and all the "extras"). Hazel got her birthday present at last - a very snazzy and dinky digital camera that she is trying to suss out as I write this. I expect the results of her labours will soon appear on her blog.
Archie came home full of beans and singing so obviously wasn't too bad a day though he has homework already in the shape of some easy maths. It was a general finding you way about day by the sound of it.
The nice family from across the road sent him a Good Luck card and later came over to see how he got on.
He's gone out now to play on his bike with Rosemary. A fuzzy walkie-talkie message just came through "Wphat time izzzzzzzz it? phut"
"Twenty to five" "zzzzphwat? I cantzzzzz hear yozzzzzzzzz"

Hazel can now get close-up shots of microbes you'll be glad to know and she's still leafing through the 50 page instruction manual some four hours later! It was her birthday in July and she's been umming and arrring about this camera for ages. She just heard from her accountant that she's due some tax rebate and that clinched it!

I have great faith in Archie, he's bright, articulate and only the slightest bit shy. He's always held his own with this lot of adults (?)... but I trust he can do better...
