    At least you have it in that order. Hope your meeting with your friend is a welcome reprieve :)
    If you have built castles in the air, your work should not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.

    Funeral was a great tribute to a lovely person, around. 200 people were there. A lovely catch up with my oldest and dearest friend with lunch thrown in.

    Yesterday was a work day , with volunteering in the evening , so not home until around 8pm, but a NSD to boot.

    Today is payday , I have finished at lunchtime to pack for early start tomorrow to Scotland. I am packing for every type of weather , but hope the sun is shining on me.

    My fuel bill has dropped by £8 a month and my pension increased by £4 a month . With the rise in C Tax I think I may have broken even! .
    To save money I am taking a packed lunch for the journey and will probably buy a hot drink en route . I am hoping to spend as little as possible , most meals are provided as is transport.

    EBay is going well , most of my items finish over the weekend.

    All have a great Easter with plenty of sunshine.

    Enjoy your break Sunshine. Good idea to pack various weather type items just in case, but It looks like we're getting some glorious weather at the weekend so looking like you'll have a lovely time.
