So today looks like being a good day.
The girls need to head out to there expedition. I have to drop them off at the car park and then take Jonathan to his friends to sleep over and Martin and I will get all of Friday afternoon, evening and Saturday until about 4pm alone together.
I have managed to run out of time and haven’t checked out where the car park is – Martin and Rebekah both assure me that all I need to do is go down the road by Chessell Pottery (run by my friend’s sister, nice but expensive) and carry on.
This turns out to be wrong.
I am already running late and I am pretty sure we are on the wrong road – there is no red book in the car and so Rebekah phones Martin and he tells us we are indeed wrong. eventually after much snapping we get there, only to find out we should have been there half an hour earlier. Honestly my kids never give me the actual information!
As we have been travelling towards Brighstone the weather has been getting worse and worse and the fog denser and denser!
Nice chat with friends then off to Chale Green Stores so I can buy something yummy to go with dinner from their deli.
As we head on towards Shanklin the fog is worse and worse and then suddenly clears.
I drop off Jonathan and then head home – child free for a little while. I love being with my kids but I also love being just with Martin (and I love being by myself) it’s just a matter of each in the right balance.
Martin is going to work until the evening and I am going to pootle about buying yummy things to eat and cooking. However first we decide to meet for lunch at the Life Boat Inn. I love meeting up with Martin from separate places makes it feel like we are out on a date! Loved it.
Bit of shopping, nap, reading, cooking.
Lovely relaxed dinner – just what I wanted loads of lovely salad, bacon and cheese potato skins and garlic chicken.
It was so lovely to have a quiet peaceful evening , just to rest and relax in and to plan what we were going to do with ourselves tomorrow.
