I took Mum into Middleton this morning so she could collect her glasses. The shop where I usually buy my pretty boxes from has closed down so I picked up some basic storage boxes for more crafty bits. I also bought a tube of hand cream which is lovely. My hands are supersoft and smell gorgeous!
Back home, it was the usual daily chores of hoovering, ironing, swishing the bathroom etc. Then I prepped some food for the weekend. I made a chili for tonight, popped some samosas in the oven for when Mark gets the munchies, cooked up a load of sausages for Thomas and threw a bit of salad stuff into a box to go with ..... wait for it..... a BBQ tomorrow evening! Not a 'real' BBQ though. Last time we were at the van we tried a disposable one and it worked really well so we'll be doing that again. I've bought burgers and kebabs and as long as we don't BBQ sausages I'm sure peace and harmony with reign and we'll go to bed on speaking terms.
In between getting ready I nipped out into the garden and cut a few more flowers. The wind had blown these over and the stems had broken and it seemed a shame to just leave them there.
I have to admit it's lovely sending Mark off to set the van up a day early. All I have to do is turn up in holiday mode. We're in a slightly different position with the van this weekend but still down at the play area end so we can see Thomas when he goes on the swing.
We're parked next door but one to this which we've named The Horse. I love all the different caravans but not sure this would be my first choice.
We've had a game of pairs. My memory is shocking and Thomas beats me every time.
And now I'm just about to have a walk around the site and then pour myself one of these.
Hope you all have a good weekend.
