Hi, hi, c’mon on in.
You must have heard me put the kettle on.
How are you? Well, I trust?
A little sad today, if I’m being honest.
No, no, there’s no real cause for sadness. I’m just being silly.
Y’see, my sister and nephew emigrated today. They’ve gone to join my brother-in-law in a new life a few thousand miles away from UK.
It’s all good. Really, it is.
I haven’t lived with my sister since we were teenagers thirty years ago. But somehow this move feels different.
On the other hand, however, think of the holidays we will have in the future!
Speaking of holidays, do you have plans for the summer? Ours aren’t finalised yet, but we are hoping to go on a European roadtrip. How well you know me. Of course I’m planning a scrapbook-on-the-road journal.
What was that? Oh, Sports Day. Yes, The Boy Child did very well and had a wonderful afternoon.
Do you want to see a photo of him almost jumping for joy? It’s not the best photo ever, but I thought I captured the spirit of him.
We’re hosting a BBQ this weekend; a summer version of Afternoon Tea. I have my fingers crossed that the weather will hold. Are you a fan of BBQs? Don’t tell, but I actually think they can be over-rated …
The Boy Child has just two weeks to the end of term and of Year 2. Next week is the Summer Fayre and the last week sees the school’s production of The Scottish Play and Speech Day. Time is flying.
And speaking of flying, I need to get my skates on.
I have to buy plastic cutlery, specifically forks and there are Tombola prizes to drop off at school for the Summer Fayre.
Thanks so much for dropping by. I’ll call in at yours later today or over the weekend.
Maybe we can meet up again next month?
