A very quiet house

With John in Auz, and Ben staying in Cilcain for two weeks the house is very quiet! Andy and I will enjoy the peace, but miss you all.

Maunday Thursday

I seem to be the only contributor to this blog, so suppose I’d better muster some enthusiasm and write something. Funny day – Maunday Thursday……..they let us out of work early – I suppose it’s in lieu of being a poor civil servant and not getting a hand out of Maunday money from the¬†Queen. Or perhaps it’s just the government, giving us a couple of hours to buy Easter eggs. Whatever, it’s nice to get home early and catch up with a bit of afternoon television.

Off to Portsmouth tomorrow for an Easter break at the Langstone Hotel on Hayling Island – I think the itinery is shopping at Gunwharf then off to the hotel to check in and dinner. Saturday we’re hoping to get to Beaulieu for the motor museum.

John has decamped to Watford for a final weekend at his mum’s before he flies off to Australia.

Anyway….I’ll probably update this sometime over the weekend and tell my silent, invisible audience what’s been going on. Will you be able to handle the wait?

Another Saturday Afternoon

Perhaps I should change the name of the blog to Saturday afternoons! But yesterday has got to get a mention – whatever! The early part of the day was spent at the Wallington Farmers’ Market. Thence off to view a very nice house in Carshalton Beeches – lovely house but they need to move quickly and we’re probably not ready yet. Sue’s Diner for lunch then off to StageCoach for a parents participating session. About dozen of us performed our own song and dance version of Abba’s Waterloo – all rehearsed and choreographed, tremendous fun! In the evening Melanie, Ben and I dined very pleasantly at Pizzaria Sette Bella, where Ben was given lessons in elementary Italian.

Hi Folks!

Hi all – I’m the self appointed editor – thought I would give this a go and see how it works. So far I don’t really know what to do with it, but as soon as I get some others involved some ideas might materialise.
