A bit of a frustrating week with getting my accreditation for the Commonwealth Games, lots of family/friend visits, days out, cleaning and packing and a lot of TV watching in between.
We've organised house/pet sitters for the dog and cat and various dog walkers while we are away, hence why I've done so much cleaning before travelling.
210 Saturday We spent the day visiting. First stop mum to help her with her shopping, then onto Grandchild. We called in for one last look at the flat, before we exchange contracts at the end of the week.
211 Sunday Off to the Welland Steam Rally, day spent with Mary and family from over40andamumtoone Also met another friend with her children.
Our first close contact get together since pre covid. We actually saw one another more when I was living in Dubai, than we have done in the past year since returning to the UK full time.
212 Monday I didn't go into Birmingham as I was tired and didn't want a wasted day chasing my accreditation as I hadn't heard from anyone. I pottered around, watched TV and sorted things out for our trip.
Nice and easy microwave 'knee tea'
213 Tuesday Into Birmingham for 6.45am. I had tow all 5km to reach the accreditation tent and by the time it was sorted I was 45 mins late. Had a good day as a 'way finder' directing athletes and personal to various places. home by 5pm evening spent watching the games on the TV.
214 Wednesday Back into Birmingham, sussed out the buses so no walking. Had a fab day, held a gold medal and met and chatted with lots of medal winners. home by 5pm and another evening spent watching the games on TV.
215 Thursday Peter off to visit child 1 and grandchild. I spent the day packing and cleaning then evening spent with friend with chips and wine.
I tried to get a screen shot, but grandchild dancing and doing gymnastics.
216 Friday Panic call to Australia as Peter's visa wasn't sorted, all done with a new application on his 2nd passport. Out to get my nails done, called in at neighbours mums house for a cuppa, packed last few bits and cleaned downstairs. Evening spent watching TV.
The bougainvillea are thriving in this dry weather.
