Friday… Flaming June!

Just realised that another ten days have passed – although I have enjoyed reading the comments on the last post – congratulations to Gilian!

The bank holiday weekend was a bit chilly – however I took Rachael into Southampton to book a six week adventure trip to Australia to round off her gap year, before she starts at Cardiff University in October. Sunday was a little damp, but the weather was a bit better on Monday when I took a quick trip up to Yorkshire with friend Faith to see Jane – our friend from University who is unwell. We had a good afternoon with her in Huddersfield, before nipping over to Harrogate to see other friends from that era, Dina and Chris. I finally dropped Faith off in Oxford at just before midnight, and got back to Corsham just under an hour later. A long but very good day.

This week has seen the weather improve – always uplifting! I am taking Rachael backpack buying this afternoon when I get home, and then I am off to London tomorrow evening for an ECP session on Sunday morning, with the second on Monday morning – before going to the opthalmic clinic on Monday afternoon.

I’m pleased that the conjunctivitis seems a lot better, but it will be something I want to discuss at the clinic. I hope I’ll be able to start wearing the contact lenses again soon!

So all ticking along quite nicely… onwards and upwards!

    usual stuff crossed for the ECP sessions

    I trust that you are not so vain that you will not wear glasses……..if so just tip us off which roads to stay off 🙂

    V hot here so tonight I had Pimm’s with a neighbour and now have to wash Vivienne’s car as it will need to be presented for an MoT for her return from Oz for short visit before off to all places East again and possibly back to Melbourne

    My poor hands in all that shampoo.

    Bliss, that’s what husbands and father-in-law’s are for – car washing!!

    Hot here too, and guess what, I’m off shopping again tomorrow with a friend. Outlet centre at Swindon this time 😀

    Thanks for the good wishes Peter – birthday now receding fast so I can go back to forgetting how old I am (and of course, I don’t look my age 😉 )

    I am sure that that is true Gillian but how do you get into pubs and clubs? I suppose you have to carry ID to prove you are over 18.!

    I enjoyed a Pimms last night – in fact I enjoyed it so much, I had a second – and it was just as good as the first!

    BBQ got dusted down today! Off to London in a while!

    Yup we burnt things tonight too. Quite a lot of meat left over, eyes belly etc.

    I think the repairs may have taken the BBQ to its last legs, so fragile now that I dare not move it.

    Have a lucky time in the Big Smoke

    Crossing in the usual manner.

    No better than that my neighbour has a 52 inch plasma so we just have to turn it to the window and watch through bins.

    Is there football on this weekend then?

    Don’t know about the World Cup we need Pimm’s Number 1 Cup

    Want to share? Lots of ice and Peter will come too no doubt
