Nothing to Do

It's been so quiet here today. It's a very long time since there's literally been nothing to do. Even the ironing pile only had 5 school shirts in it.

The most exciting things that happened were my National Trust book came. Hoping to get to Avebury at some point this year.
And we went to see Mum who'd made a tin of flapjacks for us, which are delicious.
I booked a hair appointment for next Wednesday and made a lamb casserole for tea.

Amy is out having pizza with her friend, Thomas is on his Wii U, Mark is getting ready to watch Lucky Man and I'm not sure whether to have a soak, read a book or get the jigsaw on the table.

Choices, choices!

  1. yep. know that feeling. When everything is done, and not much to blog about.

    I could do with one of those flapjacks. Even though we've been out and about today and had tea at Frankie & Benny's, I could still find room for a flapjack. There is always room for a flapjack. Or cake.
    :O) xx

    1. They're lovely and best of all Thomas has eaten half of one. He did ask me if they were Mr Kipper's - I think he meant Mr Kipling's. No idea where that random question came from because we don't buy Mr Kipling's cakes.

      I'm like you, I can always squeeze a slither of cake in, it would be rude not to. xx

  2. Avebury is well worth a visit. We went last year and spent a lovely afternoon walking round, finding out more about the history. The parking was good and it was easy to walk with decent paths, signage and steps up the hilly bits. If you go I look forward to reading your blog post.

    1. Hi Sarah, welcome to Number 38. Thanks for taking the time to let me know you've visited Avebury. Somebody blogged about it, can't remember who, and they said it's better than Stonehenge because you can actually get to the stones, it's not as well known so it's quieter and they generally found the whole visit really enjoyable. I'm thinking we'll go in May on one of our "couple of days away" trips and I most certainly will blog about it. xx

    1. Definitely, especially if they've made for you. They are so yummy, I should ask Mum for them more often. She always says "they're so easy to make", but sometimes it's nice having something made for you, tastes a whole lot better. xx

  4. Good choices, I hope you picked the right one! Five shirts, I wish my basket only contained five shirts x

    1. I didn't pick any in the end, I got engrossed in Mark's choice of TV programme, Lucky Man. I'm trying to keep on top of my ironing, don't know how long that will last. The shirts were leftovers from the last pile I did but that was a couple of days ago. No idea why there's not been anything much to wash since. The basket is usually overflowing. xx

  5. I have been fascinated with Avebury since watching Children of the Stones on ITV... it must be 40 years ago, now! It's fascinating, and a special place to me since I last visited when I wanted to be pregnant, and found out I was pregnant on the way home.

    1. That programme rings a bell, I probably watched it as well. I used to love those weekly children's programmes. Rushing home from school for the next instalment.

      That's lovely that you have a special place which reminds you of finding out you were pregnant. I'm really looking forward to going. In fact, must find somewhere to stay soon, I expect it gets quite busy in the school holidays. xx
