We’ve had more howling gales and rain overnight, and although this morning’s dawned somewhat brighter, there are some ominous clouds and the weatherman has confidently predicted more storms before the day is out.
It’s going to be a funny sort of Saturday – Ashley is going to work, and then off to Iaido (Japanese art of drawing the sword. Yeah, I know.) And William is off up to Dartmoor for his Duke of Edinburgh award both today and tomorrow.
So today, I am home alone, once I’ve dropped William at school with a rucksack heavy enough for a couple of months away – how can they need that much equipment for a one day hike?!
I am going to have a lovely, lazy self-indulgent day – crochet, reading, catching up with my Sky Plus, watching some of the Winter Olympics (did anybody see that snowboarding yesterday – a-MAY-zing!), a bit of a pamper later on maybe – though no lovely hot bubble bath to go with it, sadly – the plumbing problems march relentlessly on.
And I’m going to make some lists – all sorts of lists. Recipes I want to try, blog posts I want to write, things I need to buy for the house, and so many others. I have a brand new notebook all ready and waiting for me. There’s something rather lovely about starting a new notebook, isn’t there?
This evening, Ashley has a fancy for cooking homemade burgers, so I shan’t have to cook – result! Paired with some trashy Saturday night TV, that will be the perfect end to my lazy day.
What are you doing on this windy, rainy Saturday?
PS I’ve changed the look of the blog again – I decided I didn’t like the previous one with the swirly writing and the moody black and white picture of myself on the front page. I’m not entirely sure about this look either, but I’m loving the colours. What do you think?
