Starting the week here having had what felt like an almost back to normal few days. Not to mention and clean and tidy house after three days of having people here - always an added benefit of seeing people socially!
On Friday I had two ex-work friends over for a cup of tea and slice of cake in the afternoon, it was gloriously sunny and warm sitting in the conservatory it almost felt like we had taken a few steps back into summer.
Saturday evening we had a couple of friends over to share an Indian takeaway which was really delicious and something we used to do about once every six weeks.
Sunday involved Jon, Sophie and Max coming over for lunch. I had said to Jon on Thursday that if they were free and looking for something to do, they were welcome to come and join us. I heard nothing by Saturday morning when I went to do my shopping but fortunately I bought a few extra veggies and a slightly larger chicken because on Saturday afternoon he messaged me to say that yes they would like to come! Always expect the unexpected with that branch of the family tree!
We have actually had a few conversations about plans for Christmas this weekend. I daren't think about definite plans after last year's fiasco when the week before Christmas we were put in lockdown in our area. So while we are hopefully arranging Plan A, I will definitely have Plan B at the back of my mind.
My project for this week is to make a photo book from the pictures we took during our week in Southwold. This is just the kind of thing I love to do and will spend hours working on it - it's almost, kind of, similar, sort of, digital scrapbooking!
Oh, to be back there again ...
... and oh how I miss our evening stroll to go and get salted caramel gelato!
