"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Friday, July 19, 2013


Today, I braved the heat to head south to Bristol to see Dad and bring him back to north Wales for a week or so. Hopefully, we'll be doing that tomorrow. Meanwhile, Elder Daughter and Husband have bravely, or maybe foolhardily, set off for Cornwall.  They will no doubt be accompanied by millions of families, whose children have been released from school for the next six weeks, so rather them than me.
Elsewhere, Younger Daughter, who has also been released from school, along with all her pupils, will tomorrow be zipping off from Newcastle to Liverpool.
The best bit will be that we will get to meet up with Younger Daughter on Monday or Wednesday (she hasn't decided yet) for lunch and Elder Daughter and Husband will be staying with us on Friday, having done a detour on the way home from Cornwall to Sheffield.
Let's hope the heat and humidity are a little more bearable by then!

How nice that you're meeting up with your nearest and dearest...but please don't grumble about this hot weather. I love it and want more of it. Bring it on!

Grockles (sp?) by the charabanc-load. Give me peace and quiet any day!

A busy week one way or another. Flighty xx

It's the humidity I find hard going, YP.

Jennyta said...

I'm with you there, Cro!

Jennyta said...

Yes, indeed, Flighty. :)

You may be in our neck of the woods at some point - give us a shout!

That would be nice, mrsnesbitt, but it's the children who are doing the travelling around. We're being lazy and they're coming to us. :)
