286 Sunday Peter finished the bathroom and then we went to meet twitter friends, we've known face to face for 10 years. We meet up at least once every trip. Mum wandered around Newport. Dinner at home and TV.
287 Monday Helped niece look after Thing 4 while she waited for appointment with the nurse, then took mum to Gloucester to visit child 1 and out for lunch and some shopping. Called in at the 2's on the way home, child 2 injured his back at work today, had cuddles with the baby, had dinner and watched the football.
I'm so busy I forget to take photos so todays is a screenshot of Bob in boarding in Dubai.
288 Tuesday Off to Newport with mum to the hearing clinic and a food shop at the 'big Asdaz'. Some DIY at mums, then prepared birthday tea for Thing 1 and off to visit friends for tea.
289 Wednesday Took Thing 1 and 2 to school in the morning. Thing 2 refused to walk with me 'I want Uncle Peter' Had coffee and Peter stripped the bath seal before we visited Child 1 in Gloucester, fed up of the town, we drove to Worcester to purchase some bits and bobs for flat repairs. In the evening on our way home we met friends for dinner in Ross-onWye.
290 Thursday Having booked my flights home and car hire from tomorrow I wasted an hour setting up the printer to obtain a utility bill, my DVLA code, car hire voucher and flight details. I was unsuccessful, went for coffee and blogged. Peter resealed the bath and we went to the tip, sorted out an issue at my mums and visited child 2, 2a and 2b. Called in at another friends for Peter to say his goodbyes. Spent the evening in the pub.
291 Friday Took Peter to the airport, dropped off car hire and collected a new car. Peter returned to Dubai and I'm staying in the UK for another week. Spent the afternoon tidying, sorting post, ironing and getting the tax return form ready to complete.
I'll be on the same flight next week.
292 Saturday Up at 5am and did some more research for selling my late father's stamp collection, I'm rather enjoying this new hobby. Up to mums to help rearranging her flat after my nephew moved out. Off to see Andy Parsons at the Savoy Theatre this evening.
On the blog this week: A wheat free diet.

We’re rather excited that you’re coming back sooner than planned and we will get to meet Bob and Pushkins!!! Well if you invite us up :) #365ReplyDelete
of course you're invitedDelete
You are always quite happy to fly and travel so I hope this new plan works well for you. Will be nice to watch your grandchild grow, change and develop as they do very quick at that age.ReplyDelete
Hope you get a good price for the stamps you have.
It'll be lovely to see 2b more oftenDelete
Oh wow! You don't hang around do you! Good luck with the move. It sounds like it's for the best, especially with the tenants. Ugh. Fab photos xReplyDelete
it has been our plan, we've just shifted it forward 2 yearsDelete
Ah, exciting with all the change and coming home. Lots to sort out before then. We did the whole stamp thing when my mum died, sorting out our dad's collection.ReplyDelete
it's been enjoyable sorting out the stamps with mumDelete
How exciting that you are moving back so soon! It will be lovely for you to be closer to the family. I love that photo of you, Peter and 2b's tiny head!ReplyDelete
thank you, it's exciting but going to be hard workDelete
Gosh, your plans move on really fast. It must be exciting for you, but also a lot of work to arrange everything. I'm glad you're moving back to the UK, hope we could meet some time in the next year. Lovely photo of you and Peter.ReplyDelete
the plans have been in place for a while, we've just shifted them forward 2 yearsDelete
If all the stars align, we might be heading that way too next September 😁ReplyDelete
Oh wow things are moving fast! A busy time ahead getting everything sorted!ReplyDelete
Hope Child 2's back is ok now.
yep i'm always busy. Child 2 back in work now, thank youDelete
Wow you do move fast! We are still procastinating about moving in the UK and you are changing countries. Sounds like a busy week but one where a lot was achieved.ReplyDelete
A relocation back to the UK is easier than an internal move as we have our home to move back into and don't have to worry about timing everything and relying on othersDelete
I collect stamps and have so many duplicates that I want to sell so I hope to get some inspiration from your research! Exciting news about you impending return to the UK, hope we get to have a 365 meet up! #project365ReplyDelete
sadly there is very little value to any of the stamps, other than as actual postageDelete
