I hate to sound like a textbook Brit by moaning about the weather but honestly, if you could see outside my window at the moment you would understand why. It is pouring with rain. It is cold. It is wet. It is miserable. Which is why this is a picture of what I am doing this Bank Holiday Monday.
Yes, that is the heating controller in the kitchen. Yes, my finger is very close to the Advance Heating Boost button. Yes I was about to press it. Then common sense kicked in, and I thought 'no way am I going to put the heating on in August. Get a grip woman, go and put a thicker jumper on.'
We went out to the shops this afternoon to buy some new picture frames with a view to having a small 'picture wall' in the lounge and my husband is currently putting in picture hooks and I am (supposedly) printing off some photos from our recent holiday to put in the frames. One of us has got sidetracked. Oops, that would be me!
The weather is a real shock to the system as we had a good weekend and you kind of assume that it will stay that way. It was the last weekend here before our son returns from Edinburgh; our daughter was on a surprise birthday weekend away with her boyfriend, so it was the calm before the storm of having all four of us living under the same roof again. We still managed to fit in a meal out with friends, back here for drinks afterwards kind of Saturday, followed by a Mother-in-law for lunch, Spurs winning 4-0, making the most of them being top of the league, long dog walking, one more Breaking Bad episode kind of Sunday.
This is the last week of school holidays so it is back to work for me next Monday. Prepare for a more sulky Me on Monday next week!
Me on Monday. Another great idea from Sian.
