Well. It’s finally Friday!
It has been a long, long week and I note that a couple of my blogs this week have given long, sober and verbose consideration to world affairs (or at least, national affairs) and were as close as I could muster to philosophical discussion of said events. They have probably painted me as the prototypical Alf Garnett, venting the hackneyed theories and sentiments of the baby boomers, but there you are – I was horrified by the pictures I saw on TV and by the blatancy/mindlessness/randomness/violence of the whole thing.
Anyway. It’s late. At this point I am beyond acknowledging a world outside my window.
So my thoughts tonight are far more parochial – even homely! Or there again – maybe absent would describe them better!
I’m at home, winding down (ie – having a little glass of wind-down liquid) – preparing for another action packed weekend. Ms Glamorous Shoes is childminding without me (I had to stop for a doze on the way home, so she felt I would be a liability in the greater task of looking after a four year old and a nine month old!!!)
To come this weekend?? Well the fundraising campaign continues unabated. All the joys and excitement of bag packing this time. Followed by the evening celebration of a wedding. And then a Sunday devoted to our long awaited Christening event (although, at this point – Friday night – we have not yet been given details of the timing of this happy family gathering!!)
Clearly we are on a tight schedule throughout the whole weekend. Little time to finish the bookclub book. Little time to complete written work which is building fearsomely up. Little time to do all the tasks which have been impossible to fit in during the week. Little time, again, to do that dash of housework which makes a home welcoming. Not that every excuse isn’t already used to evade this last!
By Monday I’ll be glad to return to work to get a rest!!
PS – just a quick photo to whet your appetite for the deluge of pics from the weekend…..
Absolutely nothing to do with the activities of the forthcoming weekend, but don’t you think it’s a pretty picture???
