    Hi HHD :) Not many more sleeps now until your holiday :) It's so nice having something to look forward to isn't it. Your day out sounds lovely, the tax credits and vat returns not so much but at least it's done now and off your mind before you go away. 

    I bet your garden is looking lovely with all the work you're putting in. Have a lovely weekend. xx

    It sounds as if you had a lovely week. The NT place sounded lovely- we looked at going to a local one tomorrow but missed the booking deadline.....
    Thanks all of you :)

    Lots and lots of hard work... but so satisfying when you complete it. In the case of gardens the pleasure it gives ( perhaps not though the bedrooms! ) 
    As a dear MSE friend says “keep plodding” or
    What does the saying say.... When life hands you lemons, crack open the Gin......
    Or as my Mum would instil, brush yourself down, tomorrow is another day or
    Fake it, to you Make It
