I hadn't realised how great it was to have Ellen home over the Christmas/New Year break. I've been home alone for two days now, and I'm going stir crazy. Today I got locked out of the house, and there was nobody to call, so I had to hang about in the garden all day. Lucky the weather was pleasant and not one of those stinkers -- or, worse, a day like Christmas day, where the central heating was on!
I wish she'd get the door fixed, so it doesn't get stuck all the time.
