A quiet week adoption-wise but a week of hell work-wise. So much marking and the 28th was the deadline to get it all done.

All we need is a finished bedroom to put it in.

But he's getting there.
Had a wonderful evening last weekend with Minnie and Micky, catching up on all things adoption. The weather was great, the BBQ was great, and even if it did resemble an inferno at times, it meant that the cooking temp kept going till very late!!
