the past week has been a more peaceful ( than usual) week for beloved and I as T has spent the half term at his grandparents in Cornwall. We collected him at the half way point on Sunday - he has had a wonderful time and has been to the zoo and the beach, as well as spending lots of time, playing, gardening and riding his bike with his cousins and Auntie. I am so happy that he had a great time and it means so much that he has this great relationship with my family, as we do not see them very often. We are now making plans for the summer holiday and T wants to visit again, my parents are delighted to have him again and it will really help with the childcare over the long holiday. The only downside - the cost of the petrol to transport him! My local petrol station (Morrisons) has unleaded at £132.9, which doesnt seem to bad in comparison to other suppliers at the moment.
T is back to school tomorrow and excited about this! He is very keen to see his friends. Beloved is also very happy as he has found someone to buy all his brewing gear for £130, its probably worth more, but he has cut his losses. I am giving serious consideration to have a car boot to raise a bit more cash and get rid of more stuff (clutter). At least we have saved a little money for the last couple of days - we havent needed to water the garden given all the rain we have had here, although I do think we are probably heading for a much drier summer. In all a positive week.
