My Mondays to Fridays tend to be very samey hence why I've been quiet the last couple of weeks. It's a very dull routine of getting girls off to school and myself to work and then clubs some evenings. The rest of the week is taken up with chores and usually on Wednesdays I meet friends for coffee.
S has a much more exciting life! In the early hours of the 20th she drove up to Gatwick and caught a flight to Lyon where Husbands Aunt and Uncle picked her up and she went and stayed with them until the Friday. It was the week of warm weather so she had a glorious break, sitting outside cafes with coffee and croissants, walks and a swim in the Lac du Setton which she said was very chilly. She got home very late Friday night and then on the Saturday her and D went to Cardiff for a couple of nights. A year ago S managed to get tickets for a concert as an 18th Birthday present for D so off they went for that and some shopping. They had a brilliant couple of days.
On Mothers Day, which would also have been my Mum's 75th Birthday, we took K and L to Broadsands beach for the day. We had a picnic on the beach and read our books etc and then walked around to Elbury Cove where the girls went in for a swim. L didn't last long but K managed about 15 minutes. In the evening the four of us went out for some food so all in all a good day, but tinged with sadness,
Finally, Daughter D has had a brilliant day today. Last Wednesday she had an interview on Zoom with Plymouth University to do a Sociology degree and today she was offered a conditional place. Then this afternoon she had a phone call from the Police to say that her application to be a Special Constable had been shortlisted and she has an interview for that on Zoom next Wednesday. Her first choice of job is to go into the Police Force but it is not that easy these days. She eventually would like to specialise in safeguarding/child protection within the Police hence her other possible career choice, social work. Decisions, decisions. With both it will come down to A Level results - in Health & Social Care and Photography she is online for a distinction, the tricky one is Sociology. With home learning and staffing problems due to Covid the teaching has been a bit weak so none of the pupils are strong in the subject. She is doing mocks this week for it so we shall have to see how she does.
We are doing more holiday sorting Saturday and then going up to Wiltshire Sunday for the day to take my Dad out to lunch. The Premier Inn we use was full and the Travelodge wanted a fortune for the one night hence we are not going for the weekend. It is his Birthday on the 10th April, but we will be driving to Dover, so we are having an early celebration.
Hopefully will post again before we sail!
