A nice, lazy Friday night and Saturday morning was followed by a visit to work to catch up on the usual paperwork. Who says men can't multi-task...school work and if I say it myself a rather impressive first of the season blast on Amazon that crossed quite a few family and friends off the list for the 25th. I still have plenty to sort but at least I've made a start.
Back for about 2.30pm to catch a train up to London to spend some time on the South Bank. I was disappointed that I've missed the gorillas who have been there since the summer. I kept on meaning to go up but didn't get round to it....perhaps we need our own version in school of an animal that we decorate???
A welcomed coffee break on what was quite a windy afternoon. We then had to scoot back to London Bridge to catch a train home as meeting friends who had invited us out for dinner. It turned out to be a meal with a difference......my first Christmas Meal on Advent in a Pub rated the best for pub grub in Kent. Not that unusual until you discover that it was a Tom Jones evening with quite a decent lookalike serenading us with My, my, my Delilah, green grass of home, what's new pussycat....and yes I could go on but for the obvious reason I won't. They are great company and whilst not your usual evening out it was good fun.
Today started with the obligatory Sunday Morning dog walk for Timmy in the woods then I cooked a huge leg of lamb with all the trimmings for friends who came up from Hastings for the afternoon.
A lovely weekend and so much to look forward to this week. I can't wait to see what a Nativity looks like here at Wainscott and we even have a real postman visiting on Monday to train our School Councillors on sorting and delivering the Christmas Post!
Enjoy the week ahead....
