The grandchildren have had a busy couple of weeks, I love to hear about what they are doing. Jade celebrated her 15th birthday with one of her presents being another trip to London to see her favourite singer Ollie Murrs with her Mum.
She also spent a day with her pony riding along the beach and a family meal in the local pub which I did manage to go to.
One of my friends Carol spent a month in Australia visiting her daughter and husband who live on 10 acres of grape vines. I asked her before she went if she could get me a fridge magnet as I collect them from places I go and bless her she remembered and got me a pink one, I was so pleased with it as forgot when I lived there.
My eldest daughter got her new hot tub up and running not being able to wait for husband Darren to build pagola so up went the gazebo and it did the job and looked excellent.
Children had far too many eggs but enjoyed the hunts and eating of them. All back to school tomorrow and that’s another holiday over, next one is the end of May.
It is that time of the month again and I must say I thought it was one of our best lunches, boy did we laugh. We celebrated Corinne’s birthday, she received some lovely presents and stayed at mine so she could have some wine, then in the evening we went onto cocktails. Sorry to say that there are no pictures as all the chatting and laughing distracted me, lol. The Hungry Horse is our favourite place, food is good, wine is cheap and the staff are so lovely.
Going down to Rocksalt in the harbour where we both love to sit looking out over the sea with the 2for1 delicious cocktails between 5 and 7 in the evening, we were really disappointed as after waiting twenty minutes for a drink they then told us they were shutting in 7 minutes as they were having a comedy night. The bar girl made us one drink and I have to say she did it very quickly and not the same as the cocktail man so we were very disappointed and it has really put us off going there again.
Love the many faces of Lynda! Roll on May, I have the best friends ever and love them all so much.
What a glorious weekend we have had in Kent and about time too as the winter has been long. It certainly bought people out to brush of the cob-webs, the sea was so calm and silent and the sky a vivid blue. Not a breath of wind and everyone had a smile on their face, what more could you want? Well maybe a cheeky cider along the Harbour Arm sitting in the sunshine listening to the music, it certainly bought the people out.
What a glorious day it was yesterday here in Kent, in fact it was the hottest day of the year so far, please can we have many more days like this. Corinne came over to have her hair and nails done at Emma’s salon in Folkestone so we had a little trip to the shops then a nice coffee in the sunshine at Djangos cafe & petit bistro. Asking for a piece of cake, well you must have cake with coffee, I had the chocolate fudge cake and Corinne had the walnut and coffee cake. How amazing is the size of these cakes and you get cream and ice-cream with them, the ice-cream tasted like cornish so it was delicious, no diet today then.
It was nice to have some company now that I am feeling much better and Mia was just the sunshine I needed. She does make me laugh and really enjoyed herself, the weekend went very quickly but we managed some painting, reading her stories, put some new plants in the garden and played some games of dominoes, where she won every game!
Early night for me and a rest, hopefully some writing will be accomplished this week and I can get back to normal. Was a joy to see the sunshine a couple of days this week so lets hope for a lot more, can’t wait to get my garden sorted and looking nice again.
The once a month lunch date seems to come round quicker every month but I am not complaining as for me and I think some others as well it is the best day of the month. I really do look forward to it so much and we really do have such a laugh and always have a birthday to celebrate and lots of news to share.
The best bit of news this time was that Sharon is to be a Nan in August, I should say a very excited Nan, so that will need to be celebrated.
Lynda’s daughter Jo joined us today so she now knows who these ladies are that her Mum lunches with every month, was lovely to see her so happy and looking good, must have something to do with the new man in her life.
The puddings seem to get better and better here, in fact everything is good from the service to food and the general ambiance of the place, then you have the great prices, what more do you want. Roll on next month and yes we are back here again.
