Reading time: < 1minute...The Workshop finished on time so Barrie took us on a trip round Gothenborg by boat. Afterwards we headed for a few bars, but I ducked out at around 6.45 to recover!!! Th epicture on the left is of the Opera House.
It’s been a gorgeous day, weather-wise. It’s so hot!!!
Reading time: < 1minute...Woke up to an already very warm day. A great day to discover that the toilet downstairs was blocked!!! Luckily the Plumber turned up fairly promptly and fixed it in a few seconds!!
We all had a lazy breakfast in the garden and during the morning, chilled-out and read the papers.
Ann and Jane had a facial and a pedicure, whilst Rog, Mum and I carried on chilling-out.
We had pizza and salad for lunch and then Roger, Jane and Oliver went down to Wicksteed Park. They had a good time down there and got back about 5pm.
We then lazed around in the garden until late and dinner around 8pm – Italian Shepherd’s Pie Yum Yum!
An early start for me. After dropping Ann off at the station, I travelled down to Mum’s and picked her up. She’s staying with us for a week. A slightly sluggish journey there, but a better one coming back. We got back to ours just after 10.
Roger, Jane and Oliver arrived about 9pm – they’re staying for the weekend.
Weather-wise, it was a lovely day and we sat in the garden until 10pm eating and drinking.
Reading time: < 1minute...Nicki arrived around 8am and after sampling her excellent Victoria Sponge, she and Ann went off for a pedicure.
We chilled out reading the papers and then headed of for The Old Bakehouse in Rothwell (via the bra shop!) for lunch.
We then caught the 3.00 performance of Mama Mia at the Odeon. It was surprisingly ‘feel-good’ and the acting was pretty good all round. Not so sure about the singing for some of the actors. I think it’s fair to say that Pierce Brosnan is a better James Bond than a singer…but he didn’t do too badly. The nice surprise was Meryl Streep, who sang really well. Julie Walters was hilarious!!!
