Happy Sunday everyone! Well, guess what, we have a lovely, warm and sunny day here at the moment, and it's forecast for the rest of this week, so it would seem that summer has finally arrived here in my little corner of the world. Of course, the family are driving back to France at this very moment, so it's a real shame that we only had two dry days whilst they were here. Never mind, they will be back again in August, so, hopefully, they will be able to go to the beach then.
I wasn't really intending to do a Sunday Snaps feature today because I have been feeling so weary again over the past few days. I think I managed to keep going for the week when Eleanor and I were out and about every day, and quite a few evenings as well, but I think I will probably just collapse in a little heap during this coming week and try to recharge my batteries a little.
We really did so much though, and had a fun time together, which really is priceless. Went to see the Musical, "Grease", which was absolutely fantastic, and also saw an open air spectacular on Plymouth Hoe which, again, was brilliant.
We also went on lots of day trips, plus meals out, along with a wonderful Spa & Pamper Day at a new Spa which recently opened in a hotel on the coast.
On just one of the two dry days that we had during that time, we went on a lovely river trip up the River Dart to visit Agatha Christie's house, "Greenway", which Eleanor really enjoyed looking around, as she loves Poirot and Miss Marple!
Some other news, and here again, my facebook friends will have to close their eyes, because poor little Ruby broke her arm on Thursday evening, by falling down some stairs. It was a really bad break and she had to have a little operation and her arm is now in a purple plaster cast! Luckily, little ones are very resilient, and I'm sure she will sure be bouncing back! She is still in a lot of pain, but they are hoping that the cast might be able to come off in just two weeks, which is remarkable really. I know that, here in the United Kingdom, we are very grateful for our National Health Service, but, sometimes, they are so overstretched, that it's unbelievable really. Ruby arrived at the hospital by ambulance at 9 p.m. on the Thursday evening, and she didn't go into Theatre until the Friday afternoon at 3.30 p.m. That's an awfully long time, when you have a little one in so much pain. Here she is in the summer house, trying to play chess!!
In amongst all this, hubby celebrated his 68th birthday, so it's hardly surprising I'm feeling a bit worn out by it all!!
I do hope that all my friends all over the globe are keeping well and managing to relax a little amongst the hurly burly of everyday life. Take care and we'll meet up again soon.
