We went up to see Tom this afternoon. His sister had invited him to a BBQ but he didn't want to go. His mood can be up and down and I've noticed he seems to slip into a bit of a decline if he doesn't see one of us every day, which doesn't actually happen very often as Mark sees him most days.
I resisted falling asleep on the sofa mid-afternoon and instead threw caution to the wind, poured myself a liqueur, sat in the garden and just enjoyed the weather, listening in to other peoples conversations. It's so quiet where we live that even people talking at a normal level can be heard quite clearly, something I tend to forget myself at times.
I have 3 dresses to finish off this week. All they need are pockets sewing on, then I can get them in the post. I've not done any sewing since before Easter as clearing the house seems to have taken over, but I think I'm ready to get the machine out again now.
Mark ordered some patio cleaner and decking paint which has arrived, so we can hopefully make a start on sprucing the garden up soon. We're aiming for everything being done and dusted by the end of May so we can just sit back and enjoy it. But you know how it is.... best laid plans and all that.
Hope you've all had a lovely Bank Holiday.
