british weather

We've only been away at Easter once in living memory. It was a few years ago. We went to Majorca. It rained all week. Well, it rained in Majorca. It didn't rain at home. At home they had record-breaking temperatures with sunstroke and surfing and multiple photos in the paper of people packed like sardines on Bournemouth beach.
(I know this 'cos we're one of those families who like to buy an English newspaper everyday whilst on holiday. Just to keep up to date with current affairs you know. And photos of Bournemouth beach.)
Anyway we're not going anywhere this Easter. Which is why the weather forecast is for gale force winds, torrential downpours, unseasonably low temperatures and snow on high ground.

girls weekend

Woohoo! I am up to date with all my work! For the first time. In. Like. Forever!
So to celebrate I'm going on my annual girls weekend away. To the seaside and everything! We've got a fancy cottage near Whitby. Next to a spa hotel. We go tomorrow. Just enough time to shave my legs and paint my toes then...

home sweet home

At the risk of sounding like a miserable old git I would just like to say that I am really excited about this weekend cos we have nothing planned and I can just stay at home. Must be getting old.
