Welcome to April 24th. Best day of my life - first day of my life, in fact! :-) I'm really glad I was born in the spring. I love the spring; it is so full of colour and new life. Actually, I love all the seasons for different reasons but - for now - I love spring best!
Yesterday was splendid. After a pleasant morning pottering in the kitchen while Mum and Dad read and watched snooker, other family members turned up and we had a lovely family lunch together with a few pressies (for me) and lots of laughter. Mum and Dad are now at home and I'm on my own for a short time but I'm being taken out for lunch and am so looking forward to that.
I'm finally getting better at judging amounts at these family meals. Yesterday, after everyone had had their fill, there was just a little bit left, enough for my tea tonight but not to clog up the fridge for days. Beth took some home with her for Alex, which was nice.
I shall be popping into town first thing. I still haven't got my bank card and I know we've had a long Easter weekend but a fortnight is not particularly great and I want to get my hands on my money again. So, bank, here I come, proof of identity in hand, wanting to know when I can get my new card and if they can let me have some of my money!
If they do let me have some dosh, I am heading for John Lewis (again) as there's a little clock I want to get. I saw it a few weeks ago and thought I would give it a ponder before shelling out. It's a little travel clock that folds up into a sort of pocket watch size and I want it to keep in my bag for things like tuition, etc. I don't have a wrist watch as they annoy me, so this will be so useful.
Lunch will be at the Hare. I've looked at the online menu and I haven't a clue what to choose! Very much looking forward to it though.
After that I will head off home for some R&R and to catch up on the telly I missed over the weekend.
It should be a good day, starting off with some nice coffee, I think.
