Celia finds cooking relaxing so offered to make us an early lunch once we arrived,
using the 'thank you for having me stay' present she brought with her: a bright red toaster oven/ hotplate combo.
'Because no one can cook properly using just a microwave' she declared as she set it up for me.
This afternoon we're off to scour the op shops and junk shops for a couple of divans or day bed frames. Because we've decided we're both too old to be sleeping on the floor (especially in the middle of winter!) and it would be nice to have enough seating for visitors.
