It's the school holidays and the kids are away for a week. The last week of term seemed endless, it must be a psychological thing - sort of waiting for the end makes time stretch out further for longer. Anyway, here we are, the first Monday of the holidays, so why do I feel so exhausted? Is it because my alarm went off as usual and I was out of the house at 7.45? Did I forget that it was the holiday? No, I took the car into the garage for 8am...again...
However, it's not the early morning that's caused the tiredness - though it would have been a bonus to have a lie in- but the truth is, while the children are away, I make the most of being single! I arrange too many lovely things in too short a space of time. So on Friday my oldest and best friend came over to spend the night. We ate out, shared a bottle and came home to chat until 2am! Now I'm not much good at burning the candle at both ends but it was a great night and too precious to cut short - we don't get together that often.
Sunday another good friend and I met for an early supper with the view to an early night as she had an early start. However, it didn't quite work out as early as we anticipated! So by this morning I felt a little sleep deprived and very slightly jaded...
I feel blessed to have had such a social whirl of a weekend - it's what makes Suburbia happy- friendship, communicating, talking into the night, eating! It's been fun.
I texted a friend from work earlier 'Were we getting together tonight or Wednesday?'
'Wednesday would be better' she replied ' I'm cooking curry in my PJs!'
So that's is something else to look forward to, and I'm with Mum tomorrow - we are going to look at Rodin's 'The Kiss' which is currently in Cheltenham art gallery - I'm ridiculously excited!
So yes, I'm happy, happy, happy! At this rate I'll need another holiday to get over this one!
What are you doing for Easter?
I always thought of Suburbia being a rather morose and a bit foreboding place, filled of couples suffering from cashtration. (They've got all their money tied up for the next 30 years in paying a mortgage, so they have no cash for anything else.)
Glad to know Ms. Suburbia's life is full of friends and doing things almost all night. Yes, it can be a bit much. Please take care not to overdo it! But for Heaven's sake, keep having fun!
Hope you have a wonderful Easter. See you anon.
Blessings and Bear hugs!
No special plans for Easter yet. But every Sunday we Skype our friend in Melbourne and get her take on life from the other side of the world. Great fun!
Being busy with good things only results in a good type of tiredness!
Your social whirl makes me feel giddy! Mine is more gentle!
Glad you are enjoying yourself!
Easter? Daughter is coming over with the boys for the whole Easter weekend. We will talk and talk and talk some more and sit around in our dressing gowns till mid morning and the boys don't get up until nearer tea time! Sounds lazy by comparison!
Have a good time!
Nuts in May
Does your Surburbia have a Buddha? If not, it might be an excellent niche for some enterprising fellow. Would you be a disciple?
Are you offering your services Gorilla Bananas?!
Thank you Bear and the same to you x
Sounds fun Nick, like traveling half way around the world for free!
Yes, I think you're right Steve, thanks for that :-)
Maggie, it sounds just perfect. Happy Easter to you all x
Now THAT sounds like a mighty fine was to celebrate Easter to me!
We're going to a wine tasting on Thursday, recovering on Friday then going up to Scotland to see family. We have a 70th birthday party to go to on the Sat and then we're planning an Easter afternoon tea with my Gran on Sunday and a big roast with my Mum on Sunday. Not seen everyone for about 6 months so am really looking forward to it :-)
(Yes, I am now back trying to keep up with people's blogs again...have been missing it!)
Ps. Perhaps in the Summer holidays you can write 'and this week I shall be meeting up with an old blog friend for the first time' :-D
Missed you too Carol, I'm going to try to do the same. Your plans look very exciting! Have fun :-)
Let's do it :-D
Sounds like the perfect way to spend your holiday! There's nothing like catching up with good friends to make me happy, too. Enjoy your week!
Sounds wonderful! I will be taking Easter day by day and hoping for some good weather :)
Late replying to this...
Over Easter we had my son and his girlfriend with us - and one night my daughter's boyfriend stayed over - all celebrating Mrs F's special birthday... one with an 0 at the end ;-)
Great to have them all at home again - seemed familiar but strangely odd now I'm so used to it being nearly empty
