With apologies to those who have had to witness my low mood from time to time on this wiblog. I would just like to report that, since my last woe-filled entry, I have had a few truly lovely days. (Ta for the prayers, folks.)
I think that I may be experiencing some of that resurrection joy, after (or poss in the midst of) the shit of life. Huzzah, hurrah and bravo!
As Only Husband has mentioned on his blog, our new family member, Magda, has arrived. She truly is a fast paced, noisy and excitable bundle of joy. It is hard to resist waving regally, or at least smugly, when you are being driven around in a gorgeous sports car. To be honest, if I had seen people like ourselves, driving around with the top down on a sunny spring day, I would have thought "What a couple of posers!" I hold my hand up to that, yes I was a poser! It is a wonderful feeling to be stared at, and not with disdain, for once. Very unfamiliar, and entirely due to the car. However, at that time, I WAS that shallow. Sorry 😉
The evening saw us spending time with the notorious Paul Stump (aka Stumpy), who was the best man at our wedding last year. It was good to share food and alcohol with this amusing and interesting friend.
Saturday was chilled, and not just for 20 mins. We spent a lazy morning, mostly in bed (what Sat mornings were made for) and trundled out to a coffee shop for lunch. After much reading, eating, drinking, chatting and more relaxing, we picked up a few bits of shopping and went home…to relax. Lovely!
Today is, of course, easter. Happy Easter to you all, btw. Chocolate for breakfast, us? Would we? Well, I’ll let you decide. Then a good chapel service and lunch with the out-laws. Afternoon spent relaxing with family, reading and drinking tea, then home for watching of much Red Dwarf. Not a challenging day really, and how Bank Hols should be.
Tomorrow, we build some flat pack furniture (DIY being an unfortunate side-effect of Bank Hols also). I can see a mood slump coming on…oh dear.
(This may be redeemed by a visit to our newly discovered ‘local’ The Bell – visited also on Fri – in the evening. There could still be hope!!!)
