Me on Monday

Me on Monday ... feeling relaxed. Only two more weeks and one day of teaching and then a break until mid September.  I can't wait!
Saturday morning was the usual band practice and then the rest of the day was spent catching up with friends who have just returned to this country after living abroad for years. We've kept in touch with regular letters and emails over the years, but it's not the same as actually being in the same room together is it? They're travelling round meeting up with family and friends for the next few weeks and they're not sure where they will eventually make their home but at least they will be in the same country so it should be much easier to see each other in the future.
Sunday was a relaxing at home sort of day. No rushing about.  No housework. Just pottering about doing what I fancied.  Julie brought some more of her things round to store and this time she came alone, so we were able to have a proper chat together, which we haven't done in ages.  Maybe we just all rush about too much?
Today, I've managed to dodge the rain and stay dry when arriving at, and leaving from, my Monday schools.  It's been raining hard most of the day but I walked out of my final school to find brilliant sunshine and a beautiful blue sky. Hope it stays like this as I hope to go to Corfe Castle and Lulworth Cove later in the week.
Linking with Sian at From High in the Sky. 


  1. I bet you are looking forward to your summer break!! Neat that you were able to spend some time with friends while they are in your country. It is always an adventure to figure out where one might decide to make their home. Such a beautiful flower you shared here!


  2. Not long til the holidays now..I'm sure you are ready for the break. Yes! meeting up is so much better than emailing. I can't type fast enough, ever, to keep up with everything I want to say. Have a great week Eileen

  3. i'm looking forward to the holidays now too. sounds like a lovely relaxed weekend x

  4. Not long to go before your summer break, hopefully your friends will settle not to far away.

  5. It's lovely to meet up with friends you don't see often. Good to hear they are moving back so you can get to see them more.
