Where is the time going????

Well I can't believe it's been another week since I last did this. I can't remember a lot of what I've done or what day I did it lol, but will just do a brief bit about the weekend. On Saturday I went over to Alan's in the morning as he has been busy doing stuff to his house and had to wait in for something to be delivered. As it turned out, the guy was there same time as I arrived, but anyway, made a change to be over that way. We had some lunch and then went to a great place for a walk with Emma, called Parc Howard. It's a huge, huge gardens with lovely little displays of flowers, trees, there's a museum, tennis court, kids park, two bowling greens, duck pond etc. There were a couple of weddings whilst we were there, but think they just went there to have the photos taken, and not the actual ceremony. One bride got married in pink, really unusual (or maybe it isn't these days?) Anyway, she looked lovely, and they had an elongated limo which was quite something.

Came back home in the evening, then Sunday we went to Aberaeron, it was bright and sunny but the wind, omg! We nearly got blown over with the gusts at times. Had some lunch (takeaway bagettes) sat at a picnic table in the park, and was fairly sheltered. Later we bought honey icecreams from Hive on the Quay, and had to protect them from being blown off the cornets with my hand and get round the wall quick, only to find half a dozen people who had done the same thing, we all had a good laugh!

Yesterday I went back to Alans first thing, and then he took me to Caerphilly to his dads for the day, via MacDonalds for lunch first, and a guided tour of where he used to live as a boy, which was lovely. Completely different scenery down that part of Wales, very nice though. His dad was lovely, as was his sister, and I also met a couple of his nephews. Got back to Alans and then came straight home here, it was nearly 10 oclock by then, and as usual was worried about my birds and guinea pigs, but they were fine.

Been to Dentist today, and shopping, and up the farm with Emma for a walk.

Another busy day ahead of me tomorrow. Don't know when I'm going to get any housework done. Oh well, life's too short to worry about that, well I'm trying to convince myself of that anyway, but it's not easy, sometimes get a bit uptight and tense when stuff doesn't get done. Still, I'm having a lot of fun and enjoying myself so what the hell.....
