So I worked the Sunday and then had a rare night out! Drinks for a couple of lads from work heading off to Uni!! REMEMBER don't go out with 18/19 yr olds!!! Amazingly I didn't wake up with a hangover, more luck than anything!! But was exhausted by the end of my late shift on Monday night!
Had Tuesday booked off as holiday and lucked out with the weather.
A glorious day, so we spent it in the garden.....
.....eeking out the very last ray of sunshine.....
....and enjoying our meal together outside. Quite possibly our last!
On Wednesday Sophie and I headed to Winchester for the day. Originally we had these few days earmarked for a little European adventure. Obviously the way things still are, we thought it would be safer to stay here. We had booked Brighton but not knowing when granny's funeral would be, we changed tack again and so decided to day trip in to Winchester. I was in Winchester about 39 years ago, when we used to live in Romsey!!
Then on the way home we decided to take a detour and drive past where I used to live in Romsey, from the age of 4-11, my infant and junior school years. Mum was a nurse at Winchester hospital and Dad worked in the Winchester office for the Ordnance Survey. Happy days, so many memories came flooding back, bike rides to the farm shop, roller skating, playing marbles, first Rubik's cube, picking blackberries......
Thursday, a different day,a different city, Bristol! and very different weather!!!
Sophie and I booked last minute tickets to see Beauty and the Beast and we're so glad we did. It was wonderful, watching live theatre again, so much talent.
We also found a brilliant Greek restaurant, selling the most delicious food.
That'll become a post show favourite for sure.
My figs are thriving....
...picked another 13!! Now picked over 60 figs this year!
Friday evening and another night out in another city!! the city of Wells! We decided it was the last chance to all go out together as a family before they both head off to Uni
And a lovely evening it was too x
And then of course yesterday, Saturday, we headed down to Cornwall early for Granny's funeral (see previous post) So a busy old week all in all. I worked today, hence the evening round up, then working Monday and Tuesday, then Wednesday I shall be packing up the car before Reading bound on Thursday, taking Sophie back to Uni!
Have a good week, just praying for it to stay dry for moving in day x
