If you haven't ever visited RTFM and read the pace of life that it's owner lives at, then you should, it's a pace that makes me feel lazy.
But this bank holiday I feel that I have matched it. In pace, if not in great excitement.
Saturday started early with a teen shopping trip to the closest retail park. Finally I think we have the DofE kit list all ticked. I has not been an easy ride.
I managed my first run for a few weeks as I've had something flu-y and have been dreadfully under the weather.
Flew from my run straight to Sainsburys still in sweaty lycra and muddy shoes. If I go dressed up you can guarantee I won't see a soul I know, but when in sweat, mud and VPL there was a queue of people to be greeted. Straight onto a full tank of diesel, shower and cook dinner and we were out to see the calendar girls.
A marvellous roller coaster of emotions of a show.
The next morning my friend and I went to a free pre-viewing of 'The Big Wedding'. Followed by lunch out it made the perfect start to a Sunday.
A couple of hours gentle gardening. Which involved a good idea.
And a bad one. Don't ask! But at least it gave me justification for hanging onto a plastic wheelbarrow for 10 years too many.
Another run. A dreadful mistake in the heat and too soon after the last one.
A lovely crafting session with COG to get some birthday presents ready, cooked dinner, ironing, a Sainsburys delivery, prepared a parcel for our sponsored girl in Mozambique.
4 hours of Sense and Sensibility - a lovely evening with COG - whilst HWMBO went to see Rush.
A very full, pleasant, long weekend.
I let another friend down this weekend by not going to visit him despite being asked several times, but it's been a while since HWMBO and I have spent so much time together, we do get on well when we actually see each other. Sometimes you've just got to invest some time into each other.
