Heritage Day 2014

Well it is almost the end of Heritage Day 2014 - the first Summer holiday, theoretically Spring. A midweek public holiday is not the best, it messes the whole week up, unless you are one of the fortunate few who took the whole week off. Our Heritage Day today, is no different to last year's Heritage Day.

Yesterday, as I said in this post, someone came out to fix our alarm and I think he replaced the broken passive with a non pet friendly passive. Our alarm went off in the middle of the night, actually at 4.35 am, it felt like the middle of the night. As the alarm went off, Garfield came up the passage meowing, so I am guessing she set off the alarm. I just love how we automatically assume it is a false alarm and not someone breaking in - it is a huge relief though, I am not denying that. I have no idea which zone was compromised, because it does not show up on the panel. I am not even going down the road of "the people Mark gets to work at our house". Mark can't see a con even if it is splashed all over the person in bright lights and bells.

The guy who fixed the alarm is a customer, a Jack of all traders and a master of none. We will see if Garfield sets off the alarm again tonight when she wanders off to the kitchen to eat food in the middle of the night.

Following on the post of how cute Miss Piggy is, yesterday when I came home and the guy was fixing the alarm, I asked Sheila where Spike was, she said in my room. Mark had locked him in our room when he came home to meet the alarm guy at the house. Spike is very protective and does not like strangers. I then saw Miss Piggy sitting in the passage a few steps away from the workers. I asked Sheila why she was not put away. She has her moments when she suddenly decides to attack someone who has been at the house for awhile. I told Sheila to put her in Chad's room. Sheila called her and called, she just sat there and would not budge. She sat staring ahead until the alarm guys left. Chad says that she is not an English Bull Dog for nothing - she thinks she is an English Aristocrat and looks down at everyone. I tried to take a photo of her with her nose in the air full of stubborn airs and graces.  Each time I went up to her to take a photo she turned to look at me and I could not get her in full Aristocrat mode.


After the rude awakening at 4.35 this morning, it took forever to fall asleep again, but when I did, I fell into a deep deep sleep. I barely heard Mark and Chad leave to go riding. When I finally surfaced at around 9.30, I saw a strange motorbike parked in our garden. It belonged to one of the guys who went riding with them, but I still don't know why it was at home and not with them.


Chad and Mark came home at around three and after washing their bikes went to the new Pizza Hut to get Pizza for early supper. I don't like pan Pizza so they bought me fish and chips from Skippers. Neither Mark nor Chad enjoyed the Pizza and the general consensus was that Pizza Perfect is way better and they won't be going back to Pizza Hut.



That was our Heritage Day and it is back to work tomorrow - not looking forward to that. Whilst we relax quietly watching TV, there is a Heritage Day party in full swing in the street behind us. They have been at it since before 12 and it is getting louder and louder, I feel sorry for their immediate neighbours.








Hope you had a good relaxing Heritage Day or were you one of the lucky ones who took a few days off to go away.
