Another busy week for me anyway out and about with family and friends, still spending as much time outside as possible and LFT testing and mask wearing.
Have you seen the price of petrol after the imaginary shortage? It's not just fuel, but the cost of building materials etc. I guess it's down to the shortage of drivers and being in higher demand so people can just charge what they like. It's certainly not down to increased head count in the work place or pay rises. I can imagine with the new raise in the minimum wage that it will be passed down the chain to the customers.
296 Collected my friend and off to Warwick for last years birthday present treat from Peter. The Spa was great, everything explained on arrival, treatment, lunch, pool and saunas, one two many cocktails and dinner.
297 Had breakfast, packed and drove home via a coffee stop in Stratford upon Avon. The rest of the day was spent doing nothing other than watching TV.
298 Our conservatory is too cold now for me to sit in and the dining room is being used as storage waiting for the kitchen and extension to be started as well as us storing stuff for my mum before she moves into her new home in the next few weeks. I decided to move the dining room table into the conservatory and pack everything else up. We've got an oil fire we can use to warm the conservatory when we want to use it and there's now some space in the dining room for me to be able to still use my pod chair.
299 Our 19th wedding anniversary, we sort of don't bother celebrating, I got Peter a card and we walked the dog into town and went for a breakfast. The rest of the day was spent with me organising my dressing table items as Peter is making me a new one (current one from Ikea) I sorted through the Halloween decorations and laminated last years.
300 Up early to collect MIL and off to Avon Valley to visit the Pumpkin patch with Bob, meeting up with SIL, 2 nieces and our great nephew, we had lunch and I dropped some Halloween treats off for my friends twins on my way home. Behind the scenes with MIL and SIL at Great Nephews photo shoot.
301 Collected child 1 and off to Cheltenham to the Christmas fair, tickets courtesy of our next door neighbour, my new Christmas tree arrived so I put it up to check it out and evening spent in front of the TV and blogging. I spotted this on the way to the post office.
302 Day spent in my pjs. Peter walked the dog and did the food shopping while I decorated the house for Halloween and wrapped Christmas presents that I am posting to Australia, South Africa, America, Canada, Dubai and Germany. I like to get them off early as the postal systems differ worldwide.
I ordered a new Christmas tree, set it up to check the branches opened fully. It's now back in it's box waiting for December 1st.

Neither my fella so haven't really noticed the petrol prices but we have noticed the building supplies. My dad was on about the prices going up the other day. A few months ago he struggled to get cement but now that he can the prices have gone up. Grr!ReplyDelete
The trip to the spa sounds like great fun and Happy anniversary to you and Peter!
Ohh! I thought you were putting your Christmas tree up for a second. hehehe Very sensible to wait. x
oh no Peter wouldn't et me set it up nowDelete
A pretty packed week for you. Everything seems to be falling into place after your return. How lovely to have mum move in with you. I used to stay with my mum for weeks and loved it.ReplyDelete
Mum isn't moving in with me, she's moving to a new place soonDelete
Happy anniversary! The new tree looks lovely, I imagine those branches are gorgeous when properly extended. I was thinking of getting a new one, but it's unlikely we'll change the one we have (it's perfectly fine).ReplyDelete
Love that knitted thing over the postbox. It looks so cute!
Yes the trees branches really extend and fill the gaps nicelyDelete
Sounds like a great week full of family and friends. Do love the pillar box toppers that spring up all over the place, clever. Happy non celebrating anniversary, we don't even bother with cards these days :) #365ReplyDelete
that was the first bit of yarn bombing I've seenDelete
Glad you had a lovely time with your friend at the spa. Happy anniversary to you and Peter. Love the Halloween post box topper. I can imagine you must need to be organised with Christmas gift when they’re going to so many different places. #project365ReplyDelete
thank you for the anniversay wishesDelete
How lovely to spend time with your friend and have a relaxing day. Sounds like you week was quite busy, meeting the family. Happy anniversary to you and Peter. The Hallowe'en post box topped is so cute, but will probably not last long. Love your pod chair, it looks so inviting.ReplyDelete
Is your Mum moving in with you?
Thank you. No mum is moving into her own place, a new one for herDelete
Yes fuel has gone insane. Our town in particular is so much more expensive than other nearby places when our town is usually cheaper. I love seeing yarn bombing around villages and towns.ReplyDelete
I'd love to see some more yarn bombing in our townDelete
I am very unimpressed with the cost of petrol at the moment but I have to get to work so it is what it is! Sounds like a lovely spa trip with your friend. I can no resist photos at a pumpkin patch either.ReplyDelete
The spa weekend was great and I'll keep going to the pumpkin patchesDelete
The price of fuel literally makes me want to cry - it cost me £85 to fill up today. I would love a spa trip and that letter box topper is amazingReplyDelete
The fuel prices are making me cry also, I still haven't recovered from when they went over a pound a few years agoDelete
