I can't believe it has been so long since I posted. So many things going on , in a good way.
Meeting up with friends and family, trying to sort out the garden and house in prep
aration for a special weekend. Although in the end it was not warm enough to use the garden. I have been having my classes again - though not at home as before. They seem well received 😊
My desk, aka dining table had to be cleared completely for the special weekend. We only use it when both sons and families are here. We have a table in the kitchen that seats six of us. It made sense to use dining room to craft in. I have organised it to make it reasonably easy to put things away when needed.
At the moment it is a complete mess again, as you can see above, I
am preparing for a class on Saturday.
The special weekend was our Golden Wedding Anniversary - I know some of you saw my post on FB. It was the Bank Holiday weekend. We had planned to invite several people to a celebration party but all the plans we had in mind pre covid were cancelled. However we had a wonderful weekend thanks to our sons and their families. Friends were also very kind and thoughtful.
On the Saturday - the actual anniversary we went to watch some of the youngsters paddle boarding. I had said I would like an activity for them all to do. It was lovely weather wise and they had such fun. Later we went to younger son's home for a BBQ. Sunday was a late lunch at a nearby hotel, beautiful food and surroundings and it meant so much to have our sons and their families there. I had hoped we would go home to sit in the garden but it was not warm enough. We still had fun indoors though, playing games to music from the 70's , eating cake and drinking champagne. On Monday I did brunch before everyone returned home. It was all so lovely, especially after the last 18 months.
Unfortunately eldest grandson has had covid since - we were very fortunate to not get it, he must have had it while here. He had to miss his first day at college as he was still in quarantine. Graham and I also isolated , even though all our tests were negative.
Our youngest granddaughter started her High School and other two grandchildren returned to school. Harry now settling into college to do A levels. He did very well with his GCSE'S- so pleased for him. He also finally went to his Prom.
Just a few ( sorry Julia) of the many photos, to give you a flavour of the weekend.
There has been lots more going on but I think I've written enough for now. Looking forward to catching up with you all.
