Bank holiday weekend


This is the view from my kitchen window this Sunday morning.  The cloud is low over the hills and we are forcast rain which by the looks of it, will be coming soon.  
Yesterday was a cold but sunny day and OH got the grass cut.  I say grass but its mostly moss and very spongy to step on but i like it.  We  headed to Tesco's in the morning just to get a couple of items and a pudding thing as OH wanted to cook a special meal for me in the evening.  He makes these romantic gestures now and then.  We came away with a finest raspberry pavlova and single cream but he was cooking the main dish from scratch, a slimming world chicken curry recipe.  He didn't want to do a slimming pudding too and i wasn't going to argue!
Whilst he prepared i hung some washing out to dry and watered some plants then came in to light the fire as i could see my breath indoors.  I caught up with a bit of blog reading and watched the final episode of Homeland (which was such a gripping series, i hope theres another) before going to shower and dress up for my meal  and we had a lovely evening.
Today i was up quite early and watched an old black and white film on tv with Cary Grant, it ended at 9am.  I finished off a few cards that i'd started at one of our craft nights

These are just general ones but i have made all the cards i need to last till middle of June occasions.
The Grandchildren phoned to tell us all about their trip to the football, Everton v Manchester City.  Unfortunately their team lost this time but they still enjoyed their day out and got home extremely late last night.  Then i dashed out to go to church with my friend.  The talk today was by a lovely elderly gentleman, he had such a sparkle about him and runs a healing ministry.  He told us a few funny tales to make his point today but it was all about loving and trusting the Lord and everyone was smiling.  After a social catchup over coffee i headed home to put on a quick dinner of chicken, chips and peas followed by the last of the delicious pavlova and cream for pudding.  Tomorrow i will be working which is good as i am saving for another visit to see my Grandchildren later this month.  Looking forward to that.
