Not too bad a week for me, work has been busy but fun, the shed now has flooring, and my boss gave me a beautiful wooden desk for it, just needs Phil to put it all together. My herb garden is still growing nicely
and my mum’s plant is shooting off gorgeous red leaves in the garden.
My thoughts have been busy today, as well as the Easter weekend coming up (more shed work and trips to B&Q) we are having two of our grandkids staying overnight tonight so I have been sorting out bedding, doing washing etc etc. But also we now have a trip to Poland to think about. We are going over to visit with Eddy and his family and do some photo’s for him so he can use them to advertise his B&B. The wonders of modern technology are such that emails have been exchanged with Eddy to arrange dates, the flights have been booked and paid for, on-line check-in achieved and boarding passes for the flight sent to my iPhone, all from the comfort of my little office. A far cry from my first ever trip abroad which involved traipsing into town and sitting for what seemed like hours in a travel agency going through all the options. We are only going for a long weekend, travelling out on a Friday and getting back on the following Monday, but it will still be enough time to do the photo’s and see some sights. Phil is even more excited than I am as it was reading about Poland during WW2 when he was 14 that got him into history. And we are so looking forward to meeting Eddy and his family. Eddy and his wife Gosia built their own home from ground up, and more or less living off the grid, you can read about how all that came about on his fascinating blog HERE. I’m looking forward as well to seeing all the animals as there are cats and dogs and goats and rabbits. I’ve ordered a travel tripod as mine is too big for flying with and extra memory cards to make sure I can do a good job. This will be our first time away in a couple of years, we didn’t go away whilst we had Storm and Skye as one then the other got sick, so it is quite exciting.
I still miss Skye a lot, she pops into my head several times a day and I have to remember she’s gone. There’s a quick flash of her in my brain when I travel home from work and think she’ll be there, before I realise it’s not so. I still shed tears over it all.
But good things to look forward to, as well as our Poland weekend at the end of this month, we are also doing a week away driving from Calais to Eindhoven in October, with stops along the way to see stuff, and a model show in Eindhoven at the end, where Phil has been asked to be a judge and have a display of his models.
So on with the housework before the kids arrive, Happy Easter peeps!
