It’s been a very difficult week for reasons I don’t want to talk about here, but we have been dealt quite a blow and it will take some coming to terms with. That said, there were some things to enjoy. At the weekend the sun shone despite it being a bank holiday. I’d have normally felt the need to get on with some gardening, but because I am still suffering from tennis elbow, I forced myself to ignore all the bits that needed snipping and weeds that needed pulling out, and just sat in the garden and enjoyed it. The tennis elbow is a bit frustrating, but it has made me slow down a bit, which can be good sometimes.
We made a trip out to the National Sea Life Centre, which we visit quite a lot. This time they had an activity on themed around H’s favourite TV programme: The Deep. He really liked that and he’s very knowledgeable about sea creatures anyway.
I wasn’t the only one enjoying the bank holiday weather in the garden – Bracken thought it was nice too.
We went out for the day to Liverpool as part of a blog project we are doing. It was H’s choice of destination and I was happy to go as it had been more than 20 years since I went. Lots to do there too and we barely scratched the surface, but we did visit the Museum of Liverpool and the Maritime Museum.
Friday night saw us hitting the Birmingham Balti Triangle for a meal out. I took my mum and H with me. Mum found some pears that had fallen off a tree in front of an office building. She can never resist the opportunity to use some windfalls, so we ended up bringing a bag of pears home with us.
