I was up about 6.30 and took a shower. It’s already getting warm here – very UN-Christmassy!! 🙂
We started phoning round the family (UK is four hours in front of Barbados)…Mae and Denis first…then Roger, Jane and Oliver.
At his stage, we’re not sure of our plans today. We’ve only bought just a few pressys with us, so we won’t be doing the massive pressy-opening session that we’d normally do at this time.
Another leisurely breakfast – we ate outside – and then back to the room to ring round the rest of the family and open our pressys, before we take our Christmas walk.
10.15. Leaving Sweetfield Manor, we’re off, heading for ‘the boardwalk’ a sea-view walk along the coast.
Initially, the walk, was through the back streets…past a Church and then the racecourse and a very pink house…boy is it hot!!!…must be 30 degrees.
At last, we found a Bar – no food yet, but it’s a start! Some more walking and we eventually found one selling food – ‘Can-Ai’ – Fantastic!!
1.30. Lunch over and there is no way we’re walking back!! We eventually flagged-down a taxi but he’d not heard of Sweetfield Manor, so we gave him directions!! Fifteen minutes later and we’re back at the Manor. Time for a shower and some chilling out! Phew, it’s still 30 degrees here…
Annie is doing tea and cakes at 4 – yummy!
We spent the rest of the evening reading and chatting. It was still quite hot so we tried out different places around the house to find the coolest spot. We ended up on the monkey observation platform hoping to see some… but no luck today!
We then settled in the Bar for an hour-or-so. But by 7pm, I was shattered, so we retired for the evening!!!
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’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
