08:50 pm: Another day
Well, the news that everyone has reached England was welcome, of course. Today, I had arranged to have lunch with a co-worker, who had of course forgotten. I'm glad I checked before setting off, because that would have brought my total of stand-ups there to five. We've rearranged it for tomorrow.
I got a phone call from David to say we were all invited to the Moore family home for tea. It was a rushed affair, as David and Stuart wanted to get to youth group.
I noticed that Christopher wasn't wearing his glasses. They have been "misplaced". Are they at home or at school? Neither. Then where are they? I was walking along the river, and I fell in. I can't believe this boy. Falls in a river on the way to school, must have been frozen and soaked and lost his glasses. Nothing else seems to have gone wrong yet. Brought him home, but I'll need to go and get David in a minute.

No surprises really!

River is an exageration, it is only a creek. The glasses are not really a great loss as I think we were probably looking at new frames at least during the holidays as the others were falling to bits. Make sure the boys go and visit an optician some time next week!

Yes, you're probably right, though "river" was the word he used. I went there today to get some new frames, and they will start work on them tomorrow. I expect David and Christopher will both go along together whenever Christopher's new glasses are ready. Cost of fooling about by the river/stream/creek/whatever: $299.

I think we would have been paying for new frames anyway the old ones were bent and broken in two places. These things do happen, I seem to remember that David's glasses were run over by a car!
