We’re off to Nicki’s for the weekend. We left just after 1pm and stopped off at Basildon Park on the way there. This was an interesting National Trust property and one that we had not visited before. We had something to eat as soon as we got there (we were both starving!) and then had a good look around. We also bought some more lights for the garden and a few other nick-nacks from the NT shop.

It was only about a 30 minute drive from there to Nicki’s and we arrived around 5.45. We sampled Nicki’s home-mad flap-jacks..and they were gorgeous!!!
We chatted for a while and then Nicki and Ann prepared our evening meal – chicken fajitas!! – yummy!! Whilst they were cooking, I was trying to get Nicki’s knackered Nokia phone backed-up. I managed to get hold of the software, but we didn’t have the right cable to connect the phone to her laptop – looks like a short shopping trip tomorrow!
We sat down and ate around 8ish and afterwards, Ann and Nicki went for a walk whilst I watched ‘Have I Got News for You’.
After they got back, I helped Nicki set herself up on Facebook.
10.15, we were knackered and went to bed!
Windsor Castle tomorrow!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
