there's a tent pitched in the garden.  right below the balcony, just there.  my menfolk will be sleeping out there tonight.

in fact they must have been very excited at the idea becasue no one has even bothered to come and say goodnight to me.

I don't think they know I can hear them. they are looking at the stars. and someone must have mentioned Sirius*, because Thomas, in his schoolteacher voice said, " well, yes, becasue a dog was the first animal in space, you know." I have a book about Laika, somewhere, well, a fantasy novel in which Laika figures.

I'll probably just sit here and listen..
or no, becasue tomorrow arrives a houseguest, who is not family! a real honest to god friend is coming to stay, even if only for one night,. and we are barbecuing and some other friends are coming over. i have just marinated some chicken wings and now have to do the same to a large piece of beef.

then i can come back to listen to my boys.

*Can you see Sirius from here, or does the southern hemisphere have a dog star too?

We can see Orion, but other than that, it's all very different, and I haven't taken the opportunity to look properly yet. we need some pop obs classes here.
