I stuck my head outside the front door to see how heavy the rain was and decided to cancel my plans for today ... definitely not the weather for a picnic at the beach. Plan B is now in force ... curled up on the sofa to finish my latest book (in time for the book group meeting), only stopping for food, drink and toilet breaks.
Before I go, I must tell you my good news. Last night I organised a board game evening in one of the local pubs and I got chatting to S, who I was meeting for the first time. It seems that we have a friend in common; she knows, and is in contact, with a very good friend of mine from way back who I'd lost touch with and she is going to pass on my contact details. S also knows another friend of mine who I've recently got back in touch with. It's a small world isn't it?
Finally, the best news of the lot ... my friend's youngest, Lauren, got the required grades and has been accepted at her first choice university to study English Literature. I'm so pleased for her as she put so much time and effort into studying and she deserves this success.
