It began with zipping Heather to Ashford to pick up a transit van to move her stuff into her new flat. She had spent Friday shunting backwards and forwards with boxes of stuff in her car, and the van was for the final push with the BIG stuff. Traipsing in and out of the house proved an excellent workout, and I multi-tasked by making some lemon buns and cheese scones in between as sustenance for her and her afternoon moving team once she reached her new home end.
Because in the afternoon, Andy and I had an appointment with the Marlowe Theatre at Canterbury to see the musical 'Hairspray' which is currently on tour. It was part of my 50th birthday celebration. It was fab! Loads of songs, loads of dancing, loads of glitter and sequins.
And then we came home and Chris and his little family arrived for a takeaway evening because yesterday, Granddaughter Number 2 Elizabeth was TWO YEARS OLD! ALREADY!!!! Can you believe it?
She is chatting away and can scoot upstairs in around 7 seconds. So we had takeaway and birthday cake and Heather made it back in time to join in, too.
Today, us newly 'empty nesters' went to a craft show at Penshurst Place and had a lovely wander in the sunshine eating icecream and buying a couple of original bits of ceramic kitchenware for Damson Cottage. I have to say I am surprised at how lovely the weather has been this weekend given the forecast was for doom, gloom, rain and the chillies-wobbles. No such thing! It has been glorious. Of course, it is Bank Holiday Monday tomorrow so the poor weather could be saving itself up for then, but that matters not because tomorrow I am beginning the BIG CLEAN and SPRUCE UP! The one that means I won't get any ikky surprises to deal with on moving out day.
But for now I am finishing the weekend with some sewing and waiting for the jacket potatoes to cook for dinner. Just two, now that Andy and I are just, well, two.
