Last weekend I didn’t get around to my usual post because my sister was visiting from Scotland. So I’ve two weeks in one for you today. Whilst my sister was visiting we went to the cemetery to see the family grave, which now has Mum’s details on it (it’s not long been put back up).
It wasn’t all sad though as all the kids got a chance to see their cousins. We had a big family meal out and then everyone piled back to my house for a few more hours. The children all got dressed up (including the teens) and played some weird water fight game in eccentric costumes. It was rather odd as I have 3 identical wigs that they were wearing and it was difficult to tell who was who at times, as they were wearing dark glasses as well. It doesn’t help that 4 of them are much the same height.
The weather has turned colder, but I was pleased to capture my first lovely sunrise for ages. Sunrise is currently at a more convenient time for taking pictures. I take very few sunrises over the summer months and my house just doesn’t work for sunsets as there is a big hill in the way.
In between times I took some work pictures. I’ve had a good few months of work, which has made up for 3 dire months at the start of the tax year. I managed to finish the half year on target so I’m pleased about that.
Thursday night is launch/relaunch/press night it seems. Most of the invites I get are for a Thursday which is good as that is my free evening. This week I popped down the road to Harborne for the opening of Sadlers. It’s a local brewery and this is its second permanent pub in the area. It also serves food and I ended up feeling completely stuffed as the meat portions were huge. We had planned to catch the bus home, but a walk seemed like a better idea despite the rain as we felt the need to walk it off.
