Well, I have managed to get some time off from work - yay!!!! I have been soooooo tired lately, what with a hectic schedule and some illness so it is lovely to kick back and spend time with my family.
It has been a busy time nevertheless - No. 1 son did fantastically well with his results and has got his first choice of uni, no. 2 son did fantastically well in his first year at college, no.3 son did fantastically well with his gcse's so gets to do his choice of A levels, and one and only daughter did fantastically well in year 9 and gets to do her choice of gcse's!! Phew!!! So all in all they are moving forward in the direction they want to go in, which, as a parent, is just such a massive relief!!!! Im very thankful that they have all achieved such good results, and am a very proud Mum!
For those of you who saw my last post you will know that I had a brief visit to London last weekend. Since then I have been busy enjoying myself - we had friends to stay with us for few days, which was lovely. We ended up on the final day visiting Manchester where my friend's daughter will be starting uni. So we had a good snoop around, checked where her halls are (these passed the mum and friend scrutiny lol) and then went to our favourite Middle Eastern eatery, yum yum.
Then on Thursday I went with DH and DD for a tootle round the Peak District, ending up at Matlock Bath
From Sept through the end of October the village holds the Illuminations and Venetian Nights festival. The technical people were just finishing putting up the lights - here is a dragonfly darting above the river
This was taken before 5pm, it was quite a dull day.
We came across some highly entertaining feathered friends
Hoping to return very soon to have a go on one of these:
Well, the sun is shining, so off to hang out some washing....have a great day, whatever it is you get up to!!
