ASTRID

all set for tomorrow

I must confess I’ve not run in just over a week and I’m feeling it. But we’ve had such lovely weather and I’ve been sorting out my fabric cupboard instead. Making piles of books with post-it notes. Piles of fabric. Waiting for my new ironing board to arrive.

We have had two four day weekends. Well, in fact today was the Royal Wedding and we wandered up to South End Green and Edith wanted to go to the Fun Fair because she refused to believe that it finished last weekend, so off we wandered up by the ponds at the Heath just to make sure the bouncy castle really had gone – and plain forgot to get home in time to watch the Wedding on TV. There was a bit of an M&S diversion for Colin the Caterpillar iceblocks (known by Edith as Olly-Ops which is a cross between ice lollies and ice blocks) and a bottle of proper champagne half price yay – for a wedding toast.

The streets were strangely quiet – we didn’t see a soul on the way home because they were all tucked up inside in front of the tele. Not a soul outside with the radio on. We also didn’t see any houses with bunting. There was one single big union jack hanging from a window and that was it. Maybe people all had theirs inside like ours was. Oh I wanted to hang it from the house but our windows only open a few inches.

Well. Happy Royal Wedding Day!
What did you do today to celebrate?
