Lights on

Weekend


On Saturday I took the boys into the city centre for a quick visit. We didn't go through our usual routine because the plan was to take them there on Sunday, to watch the Christmas lights being turned on.

Lights on

It was great. We usually only find out about the light lighting night after arriving in town in the morning, when it's too early to eek it out until the time of the ceremony. This time, we planned ahead and arrived in the middle of the afternoon. The boys enjoyed going on some of the small fairground rides, at least after waiting for the first one to be fixed.

Old shoe full of jam

I've been busy, so the updates have slowed down. I'm not going to whip myself about it - at least not extra hard.

Birthday Party
On Saturday I took Noah and Leo to Ted's 5th birthday party, at Castaway's cove which was the boy's favourite soft play, until last year. They had a great time, and I had one of those weird realisations, that I've had a few times, that I've shared the bus home with Ted's dad for about 10 years -- Britain's biggest village eh?

Clara cut short her catch-up sleep and came to collect us in the car.

Sunday, Clara was off work. We had a lazy morning and a relaxed stroll around the city centre in the afternoon.


Spinning

Time to catch up.
Good weekend. On Sunday we had one of those stay-at-home days. Not going out all day is still a revelation -- playing games during daylight hours, amazing!

So far, this week
My Netflix got hijacked. I received a warning that my password had been successfully changed. WTF WTF WTF! I was still logged in to the service via my phone, I could see a new email address associated with my account and two new profiles had replaced my own set of profiles. They were situated in Spain, judging by their IP addresses and new language assignment. I got straight onto customer support via their VoIP contact system and immediately grabbed my account back. Very damned strange. I changed all my passwords and set up 2-step verification on my email. I wish I could identify where they captured my password - was it my recent use of Discus, the video editor I trialed or maybe an infected mobile device? Damn, I hate not knowing.

A day out at the "Butterfly Sanctuary", at least that's what it's always been called in our house. Actually, the Tropical Butterfly House Wildlife And Falconry Centre on the outskirts of Anston.
