Last week was half term, although I was in school for a few days.
I relish the solitude and opportunity to work uninterrupted. You achieve so much and it’s also great to take stock, tidy up my desk and do filing.
Progress to finish the sixth form block is slow, but should be complete to handover soon!
It was also a week of catching up with friends, a thought provoking play and a family dinner, with some belly dancing to boot!
Oh and I made 28 Christmas cards too.
I now have to get in gear for Australia, with much to sort out: have we printed everything we need, washing, clothes, there is a list to cross off!
I had so much fun, and this week will be full of updating, chasing and trying to reassure that all is in place. We also have fireworks and a certain little lady’s birthday to celebrate!
Unusually for me, there were no plans for this weekend, and as the weather was to deteriorate, a day of sunbathing was in order. But first the cloudy skies and a downpour seemed to put paid to that
But the clouds diminished and the sun shone!
It was so warm and lovely to enjoy being in the garden. Blue skies, green grass and a cacophony of flora.
Poor Oscar struggled with the heat, trying to find somewhere cool to lie.
Sunday was spent largely relaxing, FaceTime to Melbourne and the Monaco GP.
Today has been a little more industrious, and for half a millisecond the house was tidy!
We enjoyed breakfast in the garden, but intermittent showers curtailed lunch outside.
It has been wonderful to see the garden change over the last few weeks and no doubt this will continue, with colour now everywhere to be seen, smell is becoming a feature too.
A paella and a glass of sangria for dinner and the weekend is over, with the news filled with more about the dreadful act last Monday.
We live in scary times: we have before, and we need to allow time for healing. Easier said than done. 🙏🏻
Absolutely love this as purple flowers have broken through, ready to burst into a cacophony of bloom within the next few days. Nature is a wonderful thing, as every year we see plants come to life, propagate and fill the garden with colour and form. I have had these bulbs for two years and this is the first time they have flowered.
