Well this week has absolutely whizzed by. There was endless washing from our holiday and all the usual housework.
Monday K and L had an inset day so we met some friends at the beach. We had a really lovely few hours. K and C are best friends and C's sister J is a year older than L but they are in the same class at school. All four of them get on really well together so once we get into good weather we meet up every week at the beach. We have been doing this for the last four or five years but I think this is the last year that K and C will want to as they are 13 now. We left the beach, collecting D from a friends house on the way, dashed into home for L to wash the sand off her, and then she went on to gymnastics!
Tuesday I worked. Wednesday, first thing, Hubby and I went out for a coffee and then I did more washing and tackled the overflowing pile of ironing. I have also been trying to get outside every day for an hour tidying up the borders around our patio area.
Thursday I worked in the morning and then after lunch Hubby and I went to B & Q to buy three lavender plants and some campanula plants for the borders I have cleared.
Friday, D didn't have to at school until 11.30 so we went into Newton Abbot. I took some more books back to the library. There are just three left to read and D dragged me out before I could get tempted by anything. Once those three are read I am starting on the pile of ones I have bought over the last year. After the library we went and got some breakfast which was very yummy and had a look in a couple of shops. After I had dropped her at school I came home and tackled yet more ironing and gave the house a tidy ready for the weekend.
This morning we went to Morrisons and bought a tray of 20 geraniums, 2 trays of lobelia, 2 trailing fuchsia, 4 bush fuchsia and a tray of mixed plants for patios. This set us back the grand sum of £14 which is amazing value. Late morning, as the weather was so glorious, we packed up a picnic and the beach bag and went to the beach at Meadfoot. We had a lovely few hours relaxing while K and L swam in the sea and finished off with an ice cream. D didn't come with us as she was working in our village hairdressers. We got home late afternoon and then spent a pleasant hour in the garden pottering with our new plants. They are all in and looking good. For dinner we had Jamie Olivers butter chicken which was really simple to make and very tasty.
I am still reading a lot although I have forgotten lately to mention what book I am reading. I did take a couple of the books my sister gave me to Cornwall but I didn't like either of them. Luckily, I had also taken a library book with me. Currently, I am reading The Way Back by Jamie Fewery which is good.
