Oh thank goodness it is Friday!
Back at work three days and I am exhausted already … and I still can’t shake off this cough that has been bugging me for weeks.
I’ve almost forgotten about my wonderful couple of weeks off, the good work of R&R has been completely undone already. Never mind.
So I thought I’d post a few more photos from the 1940s day, just to remind me.
This weekend I am at home alone. I am not visiting Man again until Friday of next week when we plan to visit Whitby where they have a Goth Weekend that weekend. I am not planning to dress for the occasion, just experience and photograph those people who have.
And, in honour of the event, I am currently reading Bram Stoker’s Dracula (and loving it).
So, this weekend I have a number of people to shout at – the new gas and electricity suppliers which appears to have got the address wrong so that I am now paying the next door neighbour’s energy bills, the old gas and electricity supplier, which has failed to send me a closing bill and owes me money, the old letting agent, which has not returned any of my deposit for the last house we rented. Such hassle.
I also plan to continue with the knitting of Man’s jumper and perhaps visit a church or two and a castle. I have never visited the church on my list or the castle on the other list that are most local to me – and both really are just a couple of miles down the road.
It’s strange how I spend half my life trekking across the country to visit things and avoid things on my doorstep.
I also have lots of lovely vouchers to spend at a camera shop, courtesy of gorgeous daughters number one and two and their lovely boyfriends.
I am also trying to decide whether or not I have the time to take part in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). Can I fit in attempting to write 50,000 words in 30 days with work, my fifty before fifty challenge, home and everything else? Are there actually enough hours in the day?
I still have a few days to decide.
But, right now, I really ought to get dressed and go to work.
Happy Friday :)
