Me on a Monday - 16 October 2023

It wasn't a particularly busy week but we still managed to get a few things done.

Hubby went fishing and sent me this photo.  What a way to start the day.

I had a check up at the hospital.  All OK so far, but when I go back in January the nurse will phone to find out where I am on the list for surgery.  Fingers crossed it will be in the next six months.

I had a little win whilst at the hospital.  Instead of having to pay £3.00 for parking, for being there over half an hour, I managed to squeeze in for free.

I booked our Airbnb for the Great Yorkshire Show and got the OK for the time off.  Just need to update our membership next year.

I got an unexpected pay rise.  Apparently I should have had an increment in April and the council forgot!!  Thanks very much.  It will come in handy for a new carpet in one of the bedrooms.

We took the boys down to the beach.  There was only a little bit of sand visible but they still managed to get very dirty.

We heard that two of our best friends got married.  They have been together for about 15 years and decided 8 weeks ago to do the deed.  They only had their mums there on the day and will celebrate with their families later.

I had a quick garden tidy up and chopped down the yukka tree in the front garden.  It had all but died off, but had spouted from the bottom.  I'm going to leave it and see what happens.

We sorted through the freezer and planned dinners for next week.

We started watching Lessons in Chemistry.  We're 2 episodes in and it's good, but it's not the book, which was excellent.  I'm hoping that the remaining episodes do it justice.

And so ends another week.  One more week to go and it will be half term.



  1. Free parking and a pay rise - it was a good week ;-)
    Looks like the dogs enjoyed their time at the beach, they don't need much sand to come home mucky!

  2. Beautiful photo from your husband's trip. A pay increase & scoring free time on parking - maybe you should buy a lottery ticket (col). Fingers crossed your name is at the top of the surgery list in January. I also liked the book Lessons in Chemistry. We don't get the system that is streaming the tv series of it. Congrats to your friends - a reason for a party with cake is perfect :)
