Welcome back, friends – I have been on an unintentional blog break for two weeks. Unintentional as life, fatigue and brainfog took over – I just was unable to put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard. Then there are the constant demands of a family – hubby, dogs and “big” kids.
Pin for later
The biggest kid, the young tech engineer, continues to spend half his week working from home, the other half in London as he and a tech pal continue to grow their new IT start up. He just spent the weekend in the Peak District walking with 9 nine others through the mud and rain – a good time was had by all. The smallest kid, the lovely girl, is currently working her way through German TV dramas on Netflix for her A level German “wider experience” – this weekend it has been Deutschland 83. I saw it on TV but have been happy to watch again as the soundtrack takes me back to my teens in the 80s – the plot is great too!
Hubby managed a visit to the politics student last week. It was supposed to be an overnight stay to break a long journey there and back to the north of England – and could well have included a pub crawl of Nottingham. Hubby took the middle kid out for dinner and in true student style he ate everything put in front of him, but when they arrived back at the “digs” the number of young people staying in the house had grown to the point where hubby didn’t fancy his chances of 1. sleeping and 2. getting anywhere near the bathroom. He was very relieved to be climbing into bed next to his wife at 1 am rather than in with his 19 year old son!
What about the dogs? Well our old dog has been on his holidays to grandparents the last two weekends, whilst we have been vizsla sitting….firstly for Chester and then for Jensen. Sam is now back and in his favourite spot in the window asleep on his bed – at 16, he is probably well over 100 in human years so can be forgiven for turning up his nose when the back door is opened to a rain swept garden!
I haven’t been very active with blog reading or commenting, but I have found some lovely posts that I hope you will enjoy them! Commemorations have taken place globally this weekend for both Remembrance Day and the 100 years since the end of the first World War, so it seems fitting to share some posts to mark this. So sit back, grab a cuppa and have a good read….
Have a great week,
