Ho ho ho!
Thanks for dropping in!
Friday’s blog a private peek, right?
Well, here’s what I would call a super day off….
After yesterday’s bumper to bumper traffic fiasco
up to Coventry and back,
(which incidentally, was worth every single minute)
I decided to get up at the crack of sparrows,
beat the traffic and get over to my parents’ place in Gillingham before the M25 woke up.
Brilliant plan; shot over to the Medway towns in no time.
Only spanner in the works was that my parents
were still fast asleep when I landed there!
So ended up sitting in the car for an hour
before the lights went on in the kitchen!
Much better than being trapped in traffic though.
After breakfast and a catch-up, went shopping with Mum,
to a very nice farm shop in Faversham called Macknades,
where you can spend a fortune on fine food, and
where we bumped into my lovely friend and old art teacher,
Then we managed to avoid the crowds in a local
and very well-established garden centre down in Hempstead.
It is all a bit hectic before Christmas, isn’t it?
But there the staff were so friendly and helpful,
it was a pleasure to part with my money!
Actually, it was just great to spend a few hours
with Mum and Dad.
Nothing extravagant, no tearing around.
Just a cuppa and a heart to heart.
Grateful to be able to.
Headed back early to beat the Friday evening madness,
and got away with it!
Even had a little siesta, a schnooze.
And look what Dave came home with!
A Christmas Shooting Star for the kitchen!
Christmas is officially round the corner when Dave drills a hole in the wall and mounts a shooting star, so to speak!
I think it’s time we had some limerick fun….
There once was a farmer called Dave
who one night had a very close shave….
Copy and paste my first two lines below
and then finish the limerick!
Then on Sunday, we will get out the laughometer
and pick a winner to receive no less than….
a £50 Clarity gift voucher!
So come on!
Get out the port, have a quick snort
the ball’s in your court!
Love & Hugs,
