It’s been a week full to bursting. Plenty of downs and ups, and with the vaccinations moving apace, I could be done and dusted by my birthday!
A wedding invitation last week to Spain, and I’ve sent off for my new passport, booked flights and accommodation-a real leap, or that’s what it feels like, into the unknown… something lovely to look forward to, that makes five things now …..
The six nations began and after a poor Italian performance, the Scots played a great game to beat England for the first time in 38 years at twickenham, on the 150th Calcutta cup match. Let’s hope it’s not another 38 years as it is one of my dreams to be there to see it.
Georgina’s new bed arrives tomorrow unless the adverse weather delays it, and we have been busy cleaning and cooking for the week ahead.
We are approaching half term and after some very sad news to end the week, I’m sure we will all be glad of the break from work, home schooling and the daily pressures of the early starts.
