Week Four - 2018

A busy week

Monday morning early saw my dental appointment.  I had to cancel this appointment a couple of weeks ago because of the flu bug thing.  I wasn't looking forward to it as it was a filling.  But it was done very quickly I have to say.  Then a quick bit of shopping and home.

Tuesday morning we went to the cinema, we saw Dunkirk.  A film that really does keep you on your toes!  
I actually wanted to see this film as my paternal grandad was one of those soldiers in 1940.  He must have been on a troop ship, because he swam to the Daffodil which was a flat-bottomed ferry boat.  
We go here.  We know the film has "been and gone" but we don't mind waiting, it is much cheaper.  Before we go to the cinema we leave home early to have a 'breakfast special' in Dunelm as part of our going to the cinema.

Wednesday, I had coffee with my friend Ginny.  We often meet up after Christmas to swap presents.  Her birthday also falls at Christmas too.

Thursday, we had a day in pottering about, trying to finish decorating our bedroom which has been ongoing for a while now, well a bit too long,  Cannot wait to put the new curtains up then we are finished  Had a tidy and sort for the weekend to make the house child proof as our year old grand-daughter is coming to play whilst we were listening to the radio.  We have taken to listening to Radio 4 Extra on the i-player.  We listen to vintage comedies like the Navy Lark, Hancock and Round the Horne, and the story, currently Inspector Grant - The Daughter of Time, having finished Agatha Raisin, and Dr Finley.  Sometimes get disappointed when I miss the end of the story because I have forgotten to look how many days are left to listen......

Friday, third grandchild's birthday in three weeks.  Our third grand-daughter Abigail was a year old, and as I keep saying where did that year go.......?  It only seemed like yesterday I posted a photo of her wearing her daddy's cardigan I made thirty-seven years ago.

Saturday - We just pottered and tidied again, did some knitting, sorted some fabrics for a another patchwork

Sunday, we took my dad out to lunch.  The above little-one and her mummy and daddy should have joined us, but they have gone down with yet another bug, so sadly they didn't make it but perhaps next week.


  1. Good to hear you're on the mend. Interesting to hear about your Grandad in WWII...must have added an extra dimension to the film for you.

  2. Good to read you have been able to enjoy your time again Julie and the bugs have left you.
    Abigail is certainly thriving and looks so beautiful.

  3. I'm glad you got your filling sorted. I really don't like going to the dentist but when I got my filling done, just before Christmas, we seemed to be chatting and laughing all the way through!
    Just look at that little one. They grow far too quickly. X

  4. Dentists are pretty good these days, thank Heavens ! Sounds like things are going OK at the moment, stay away from those germs if you can.

  5. Glad you've found radio 4 extra, we love that station especially the old comedies.


  6. You really have had a busy week Julie! x

  7. Time certainly marches on as we get older & I can't believe it is the 1st of February as I sit typing this. Our youngest son (40) also watched Dunkirk last week, whilst flying from Perth to Canberra & said he enjoyed. We rarely go to the cinema. Take care.
