Well I returned from Glasgow on Friday night and spent the rest of the weekend trying to recover! Lots of sleep, good food and a walk along the coast seem to have done the trick, although the blisters and sore feet might take more time.
We stayed local on Saturday, with a trip to my parents to give dad his fathers’ day card, followed by a trip to the library to get some books for Ellen. I then spent the rest of the day reading my MOJO magazine! Not something I would usually buy but Tom Waits was the guest editor so it had lots of features about him, and it had a free CD of music he had chosen as his inspirations – an interesting read and a good listen.
Sunday then saw us cheering on my brother-in-law as he did a 60-mile cycle ride around the Ards’ Peninsula – crazy, but I might be tempted to give it a go next year! Might be a good excuse to get a new bike. I managed to get some decent photos of cyclists and it was a good way to practice taking some fast shots. I really want to get some more practice in with the camera before we go to America.
We then had lunch with my sister and my nephew who spent the afternoon charming all the other people in the cafe with his toothy smiles! I then spent the rest of the day cooking some nice food for a BBQ in the evening with some good weissebeir to go with it!
So this week is surprisingly free. We have one of our last dance sessions before the wedding and that is it for activities…might actually get a chance to fit some clarinet practice in.
Plus Wimbledon has started so summer is really here and we can watch the highlights in the evening…the perfect accompaniment to the final stages of the wedding planning!
