I made tea.
Once done, i stood on the landing for a few minutes, listening. My eyes picked out a planet bright above me, and a satellite crossing -- i thought, but the approach would be wrong for a pre dawn illuminated satellite as our landing faces west. It winked out overhead, but that must have been the clouds thickening. Hmm.
The yard was filled with the sound of dripping water and steam rose from my teacup. We'll give them some time out and about. I hope Luigi has the sense to come home promptly, so Christine's day does not start with cat worries.
