Good morning, everyone!

The weather has certainly turned with the start of the new school year, hasn't it?  Yesterday was damp, humid and generally a bad drying day which was a shame as I had sheets to wash, dry and iron.  It got done but it took longer than usual.  They've been airing overnight and I should be able to put them away this morning.

Today I have a drive out, some packing and some planning to do.  In a fortnight plus a few days I am off on holiday so the build up has started.  It's all part of the fun, isn't it?  The house sitter is organised, watering the garden is organised, the route has been worked out, the car will have been MOTed by then and I am now having the fun of looking up Things To Do!  The only thing I can't 'organise' is the weather so fingers crossed for one of those Indian Summers that the UK does so well - cool mornings and evenings and warm, gentle days.

Mind you, it's not the end of the world if it rains!  It's not that kind of holiday and, after all, what's a car for?

Well, better go and sort out that washing and I do need a coffee (or two) to get me going.  Have a great day and see you tomorrow.
