Where did the week go??
After a fairly uneventful week at court (for me anyway) Friday night saw a visit to the Comedy Store and some much needed laughter medicine!
It was fantastic! Just what I needed and was very very funny!
Hadn't been there in eons and I'm so glad I was invited - we all had a really good time and the cocktails flowed which were very yummy too!!
Yesterday saw a trip to Batemans, home of Rudyard Kipling. It took a little longer than planned to get there, so that by the time I did the sun had gone away and the weather turned quite dull - but it was a fab day nonetheless!
We had a tour round the house and then mooched in the garden exploring. I still had my arty farty photo mode in operation and took some interesting shots - some of which came out better than others!
I loved the study, twin aspect windows for lots of light, walls full of books and I was very pleased to see a rubbish bin under the desk that looked remarkably like my scrapping bin - ie overflowing!!
The garden was full of interesting creatures of all shapes and sizes.
And the lush meadows and flowing streams were very restful and calming after a week in the city.
Food for the soul!!
After a lush cream tea, we explored the local area for a few hours and then headed off to the pub for a delicious meal.
We chatted and laughed and I shared tales from my Venice trip along with the photos.
Then it was time to come home to London for a quick play with the ratties before bed!
This morning I was up early - for me anyway on a Sunday, and I was put through my paces on the common by my fitness instructor! I can tell you now that I am already feeling it, so dread how stiff I will be tomorrow?
Tonight I am off to Windsor for dinner with chums - the nice meal we didn't have time for on Friday night??
I am really looking forward to it as we are going to Thai Square and I already know what I'm going to eat!
And the best part...........?
I am off tomorrow as well!!
No Sunday evening blues for me,
I get to recover and play in the Zone.
I have done all my chores today so I am going to make a start on my travel journal I think. I have purchased this set of two 8 x 8 albums with their own case, so I intend to re - cover them and embellish them as I think that two albums should be sufficient for all the postcards tickets and pics that I have from Venice.
I wish I had time to start it now, my mojo is begining to flow.................will show you my progress along the way.
catch you soon
