August and AT LAST holidays!

Just WOW.
Sunset West
Rainbow over our house East 270 degree Panorama shot.
I didn’t know which way to face… West for the utterly amazing, changing every second sunset, or, the perfect full rainbow that was arched perfectly over our house, and was almost a double.
What a sight!
The sky really was that colour…

I reckon by the time you get to my age your brain needs defragging! All my memory and knowledge is bumping into each other and getting confused.

I had two whole weeks off! Bliss!

It began with a couple of days with my dearest friend in Lincolnshire. Weather was good too. We spent much of the weekend languishing in their huge new hot tub which is in a large open front chalet overlooking their garden and the countryside beyond. All mod cons with drinks fridge, speakers and food cupboard etc. Oh my oh my… how wonderfully luxurious. We spent almost four hours in it on the first evening and watched it go dark and counted the stars and drank a little too much bubbly. On the second day I was taken out for afternoon tea. Maybe I’ll share the tale of my friend and I this weekend trying to get into her large Mexican hammock which is strung up in the shade between two apple trees and seemed a good place to relax together! But then, maybe I won’t. Thank heavens no one saw us.
(Last time she and I shared the hammock a few years ago it was easy!)
At one point we seriously considered my trying to retrieve my phone from my pocket and calling for help! We made it all better with another evening in the hot tub.

I spent a day with Mum and sis in Ambleside, pottered at home and generally chilled until we were to head off for a week in Northumberland.
The night before we went our good friends Helene and Martin arrived to stay at the house while we were away for a little holiday themselves and we got the week off to a good start when we went out to dinner with them.
