Good morning, everyone. It is stupid o'clock but, to be fair, I was fast asleep by not long after eight yesterday evening so I've had almost eight hours of good sleep. I was so tired even without prosecco to help!
It didn't take that long to unpack and sort things out once I got home and the rest of the day was spent pretty much chilling. I caught up with a bit of YouTube and telly, read quite a lot, did some washing and battled to stay awake until a half sensible bedtime.
The weather was gorgeous too. We were quite lucky through the week. One day was very showery, one had a few bits of rain but was generally brighter, Thursday was glorious, as was yesterday. I have no idea about today and it's a bit early to tell, but it looks pretty promising.
Having said that, I've just taken a minute out to check the Beeb and it says that today will be dry but dull but tomorrow, oh dear, heavy rain most of the day. All those street parties - what a shame! We've not organised anything here in our cul de sac this time. We had knees up for the 50th and 60th celebrations but we're taking it easy this time and celebrating quietly.
On to today and it will start with a drive to Sainsbury's to get in some supplies. The fridge is looking pretty bare so there's plenty of room for fresh fruit and veg plus some dairy and a few other bits and bobs. A couple of years ago I'd have said it won't cost too much but today I guess it will cost an arm and a leg but that's the sign of the times, isn't it?
I might take a trip to the gym for a swim - I'll see how I feel. Being Saturday, it might be too busy, of course, although being a long weekend, people might have other things to do (like travelling up the A12 yesterday morning!!!). I'll think about it!
What I really do want to do is catch up on all the blogs I have missed while I've been away. I've sort of kept up but not really, so I'm looking forward to that. I probably won't post 'retrospective' comments much but I will read and catch up.
And the last thing is to get some meals planned - I am back on the straight and narrow and have the new Chubby Cubs book to explore. Nice!
Now it is time for my second coffee so I will sign off. I hope you have a wonderful Jubilee Weekend, whatever you will be doing. Enjoy! xx
