Holidays are coming, holidays are coming!

Looking forward to holiday time. We’re going up to Anglesey on Friday and staying for 9 days. We’re camping “here”: (I hope 🙂 Hopefully the weather will be nice so we can enjoy the beaches.

Had a totally knackering day on Saturday. Got up early and drove down to Winchester. Picked up a van, filled it with my junk (belongings) and drove it back to Reading. Emptied it. Had lunch. Filled it with junk (literal, this time) and drove it to the tip. Emptied it. Drove back to Winchester and returned the van. I cut the grass and picked blackberries and plums while Hannah cleaned and tidied (what a girl). Then we drove back here and moved my stuff around some more to make it a bit more habitable.

I have *never* sweated so much in my life. I had my shirt off for most of the time and the waistband of my trousers were soaked. We got stuck in traffic on the A34 and it was like being in an oven. Hannah was dropping off. I just drank and drank and drank at every opportunity and I still don’t think I replaced all the fluid I lost.

Today I have painted a small computer cabinet that I’ve made for the gateway for our flat. I’m not very impressed with it, hence the paint to cover the multitude of carpentry sins. It was made out of odds and ends left over from Jon’s room refurbishment, however.

It’s Hannah’s birthday on Thursday, I’m not sure what we’re going to do. She finishes work on Wednesday, though, so that’ll be nice. I’ll get to see some more of her.
