Having missed two weeks while I was away, I am determined to do a post today, but as I only arrived back from UK last night, it will be brief!
I have enjoyed a fantastic two weeks with great family times. I saw all five of my sons, and all five of my sisters, along with their partners and children, including my two-year-old great-grandson.
I helped to scalp son number two, all in aid of the Severn Hospice where he works, and partied until the wee small hours. Son number five played the piano and sung for me, and son number four got heavy on his drums. I have visited eight family homes and slept in six of them, used two planes and five trains and ridden in several cars to tot up a fair bit of mileage, enjoyed long chats with precious family members, had some great food, been shown the sights from the beautiful Gothic arches and marble halls in Manchester Town hall, to the windswept roof garden at the top of the newly opened, very modern, Birmingham Library. I did some craft shopping with sister number five, and made my sons wait patiently while I browsed the clothing sections of the stores in their respective cities. I had an eye test on my first day, and collected new glasses on my last day. My world has indeed been rocking.
Sadly on my first day back I am attending the funeral of the friend who was so suddenly taken ill just two weeks before I went away. But it won't be a too sad occasion. We are going to give her a great send-off!
Photos of my holiday and the family times will follow as soon as I get them downloaded from my camera and sorted out a bit, so watch this space.
I shall now visit Celtic House to link this post. Come with me to see what has rocked the world of other folk this week.
