He couldn't get today off work (too many others going off on their hols early), so we went out for lunch on Wednesday, to a local independent carvery restaurant. It was heaving with people, a big coach party in apparently, thank goodness we booked or we'd never have got in. The food was lovely, as usual, I had beef and lamb, scrumptious. We don't bother buying each other presents anymore, after all these years we have everything we need so don't see the point in spending money unnecessarily. We've had money gifts from family, so will put that towards something for the garden.
I realised it's also a year since I started writing this blog....well, it was a year last month actually, i'd just forgotten about it. Again, where does the time go?
As it's school holidays next week we shan't be going out anywhere....the perils of living in a holiday area, the beaches, towns etc are overrun with tourists. My biggest bugbear with them is that they amble along at a snail's pace, 3 or 4 abreast taking up the entire pavement, or milling around in groups having a chinwag and blocking the way. Fine, if you have the time, which obviously they do, but a bit annoying when you live here and just want to get your shopping done, get to the bank and go home! But of course lots of local businesses rely on tourists, so I shouldn't moan (but I will anyway hehe).
Haven't looked at the forecast yet for next week but I hope it will be fine...not raining at least, as we have work to do in the front garden, a small flower bed to clear and replant, lawn to cut and wooden furniture to paint.
