Here we are in the UK celebrating another bank holiday Monday, and in the south east the weather is glorious..AGAIN! I can’t recall a time when both May bank holidays have been sunny – 2018 will be one to remember.
This week in the PainPals house exams have taken centre stage with the student engineer taking his final “Finals” exam – hooray – and the lovely girl sitting the bulk of her GCSEs. There is just a group presentation to be given on Wednesday and then he has finished…4 years really have flown by! Fingers crossed now that he gets the results he wants (and deserves). The lovely girl is still revising, but feeling a lot less stressed and is creating a pile of books and notes ready for her bonfire at the end of exams! Prime place is given to Mansfield Park which she hates with a vengeance. Have I ever mentioned that Jane Austen is one of my favourites? She keeps speaking to us in German though…this will continue as she plans to take German A level, but we haven’t got a clue what she is saying. I am enjoying our latest German TV show though that we found on Amazon “You are Wanted” – she listens to the German whilst I read the subtitles.
Mum and the student engineer’s boyfriend (must find him a name, that is too long!!) celebrated their birthdays this week, on the same day, so we all enjoyed a night out at the local tapas restaurant. I would love to share a picture with you, but the couple that I managed to take are truly awful and as my mother reads this, I really cannot publish them as she would never speak to me again! The student engineer has planned a night out tonight (most unlike him) – and I can’t say any more in case his other half reads this before they get there. Stop typing, Claire..it is a surprise!!!!
So what have I found for you in the blogging world this week? It cannot have escaped anyone’s notice that four letters have been huge this week – GDPR – and I have included one post that is really useful. But there is also a little something to tickle your tastebuds for wine day, a lovely piece from Happiness and Food titled “Asphalt and a Leaf” and flamenco..yes, flamenco dancing complete with a video! I love the last post that talks about the giving and receiving of traditional letters and cards, delivered by the postman. I take part in a designer’s card swap within the We All Send Cards site (where my girl has designs for sale) – it is so lovely to open a card with a message just for me!
So sit down, maybe with a glass of something cold and refreshing on this lovely day, and enjoy some great blogger’s posts.

Have a great week,
