Although I retired last year I still look forward to the weekend and hey it's almost here. My daughter got the weekly supplies in,lots of salad vegetables, fish and chicken and fresh fruit. I got some mussels in white wine sauce. They are so delicious, I didn't have the crusty bread that I usually have, but I still enjoyed my treat. I stuck to my 1500 calories, in fact 1300.
My grandchildren are going away for 4 weeks tomorrow to stay in Devon with their father. They are so excited. My daughter still has the washing and packing to do when she gets in, but she remains totally unfazed by it all. Then she is driving all the way to Devon tomorrow.
My other daughter is taking me out for a birthday treat on Sunday to see The Tempest at the Globe, with my favourite actor Roger Allam. She rang this morning to say that a lot of roads and bridges are all closed off on Sunday because of a cycling event. This means I will have to check out timetables etc before I leave. One more annoyance. I shouldn't complain too much as I support cycling in the city BUT .....
Anyway I didn't get to sleep last night until 5 because it was so hot and then thunder again so I should sleep really well tonight. Bonne nuit everyone.
