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.
