Pippa here again with a Monday Sevens post actually on a Monday for once, it’s amazing what a few days off work can do for your scheduling.
I have been working all week so not much in the way of extra-curricular activity for me, but for this week the work days were shifted back so I did get the mornings to chill out and have some ‘me time’.
On Monday this proved very lovely, chilling out on the deck at A’s flat in the only sunshine we had all week and doing some painting.
Other than that I didn’t get up to much except work during the weekdays, even working on the Bank Holiday Friday to get some boats ready for the courses this weekend.
Nikki spent a lot of the week working on her thesis, as usual. But did find some time to treat herself to some very scrummy looking tapas.
Also she has been working on her lettering and getting her Bullet journal ready for the new month.
This weekend we departed for different ends of the country to enjoy some time with our other halves. Nikki travelled down to Devon with Philip and is staying there for the week half enjoying some “holiday time” away and half helping our parents out looking after our Grandparents.
This weekend her and Philip went for a walk around the Dartington estate and saw some deer and the Steam trains made multiple appearances for them.
I went up to Ipswich with A and despite the weather trying to drown us, we got some time to walk along the very muddy seawall and take in some lovely views of the Orwell, and the commercial dock at Felixstowe in the background…
I am back down south now and surprisingly didn’t get held up by bank holiday traffic too much.
I hope everyone else had a wonderful week and managed to get what ever they wanted done this Easter weekend. I am longing for some decent sunshine to dry out the garden a bit so that we can enjoy spring before the busy summer season comes barrelling down on us.
