Nick's mum is safe back home now -- thanks for the comments yesterday.
1. Sarah has left a strange little tree for me. It stands on a tripod of bloated roots like a mangrove, and has glossy green leaves. Nick's parents are horrified when I go to lift the pot -- Nick must carry it home for me, cradled against his chest.
2. We clear the last of the boxes out of the kitchen and turn the table round to its final position.
3. To grill lamb chops with garlic and rosemary tucked in between the meat and the fat. I really appreciate being able to grill without the smoke alarm going off. Also, to be able to buy a large pack of chops because I can freeze what we don't eat today.
