Weekend

Post by Original Quill on Sat Apr 04, 2015 4:56 pm

Well, here is the weekend again.  I feel like I already had mine.  Thursday was my birthday and yester day my sister and brother-in-law took us out to Bodega Bay, on the Sonoma coast, for a lunch at one of those seafood restaurants overlooking the surf.







Today...back to work.  You?

Happy late birthday Quill, we have had our ups and downs but the older you get each birthday is a bonus. The place looked lovely. Popped in for a minute, bed for me, had a day out today and another one tomorrow, so need some kip.

Had a great day today Quill, watched the Arsenal V Liverpool game and they hammered Liverpool, so is always good to beat a rival team so well.
Family day tomorrow, my Mother is over from Ireland, so off to London in the afternoon.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

We had our Easter egg hunt today and the kids loved it! My thirteen year old son acted all cool but enjoyed helping his little sister...

I always go OTT at Easter and make up big baskets of eggs and pressies.

Fun...I remember those with my two daughters. We exchanged baskets with neighbors, and the older kids would shove away the younger kids during the hunt. Had to watch 'em, but it was fun.

No problem, nicko. I don't publish it. Just mentioned it, as this is mainly a weekend thread, a la Winston Smith.
