Friday 27th to Sunday 29th November
When I got up this morning to get ready for work Robyn decided to have a nose bleed! She keeps having these too often at the moment and I hope she’s just going to get them checked out with the doctor real soon. This one was really very heavy and lasted for quite a long time. It stopped her from being able to get ready for work for a while, and it was starting to make me feel a bit sick! Eventually it stopped as suddenly as it started, thank goodness.
Work was busy. A constant steady stream of customers to serve.
I made myself some pasta for dinner. I don’t know about you but whenever I make cheese sauce I always seem to get lumps in it 😦 so out comes the sieve!
Saturday morning’s breakfast.
How spoilt was I? It tasted amazing. Mr Warburton’s Giant Crumpets are so nice. Crispy on the outside and so soft inside. And the holes just let all the flavours from whatever’s on the top, soak through. I really advise you all to give them a try. They are my new favourite thing 🙂 Seems like I haven’t had a curry Saturday for a while, but if I get this instead I really don’t mind 😉
Then there was another ‘attempt at Christmas shopping’ trip. You will find there will be an awful lot of these now. I managed to get a couple of little things again. Then, amazingly, I got Gary to agree to get a Costa coffee ☕️ We had to go and sit in though, I wasn’t allowed a drive through, which of course I didn’t mind either! I had another one of their mince pies too as I find them very very tasty. So then I got out my iPad and did a bit of online shopping. Another 3 little presents bought. A much nicer and relaxing way to shop. I was quite pleased with myself 😆
We were due to go and watch Tom’s band this evening but for some reason when I got home I just couldn’t face it. After a lot of debating with myself I decided not to go. This made me incredibly upset as I felt I was letting Robyn down and after all she does for me, she definitely doesn’t deserve that. So in the end I spent the evening at Gary’s. I had a shower and then just sat on the sofa doing nothing. I was upset for the whole evening 😰
A little mention for my dad today. It would have been his birthday. How I would love to see him again and for him to meet Robyn and Leah. And of course to tell him all about what I have been through …
On Sunday we decided to go shopping at the last minute. Gary needed some paint and I was going to look in a specific shop for a Christmas present (can’t say anymore than that because the person concerned reads my blog!) Annoyingly it turned out I wasn’t very successful in that department anyway as the shop didn’t have much choice!
We took so long in the shops in the end that we were really pushed for time. We were going to see a band play in our local pub (and this time I was determined that I would go ) We rushed back and got ready to go out quickly. We were late. Then when we got there they hadn’t even started. They were waiting for the football match that was being shown in the pub to finish first! My friend Jackie came to watch too. I hope she enjoyed it 🎤
On the way back I got some chips. In the end they were too salty (the man in the shop had put it on) and I couldn’t eat them 😦
What a weekend.
