So, my week off was not as restful as I had hoped it would be. As usual, I tried to achieve too much, and there were a fair few events on that made it quite tiring (wedding, ladies breakfast and birthday party, plus setting/packing up and performing).
Sadly, I didn’t really get to relax at my grandma’s either. I had totally imagined sitting in pa’s old rocking chair in the new extension downstairs, reading or drawing, and even going for a walk.
Instead, I hung out with a bunch of old ladies who didn’t really talk to me, helped grandma run some errands, and then stopped in at my great Aunt’s house and watched a home video and listened to the two sisters chatter away for a couple of hours. By 8:30, I was in bed (apparently my body can’t handle fresh air).
I did get some nice photos though. I remember this aunt for her garden, and I was always a little afraid of her because her garden was so precious. Now that I’m older and have a chance to get to know her better, I think she’s pretty alright.
I did a little wander around grandma’s house and garden, as well, for a bit of nostalgia.
It’s now the long weekend, and I’ve finally been able to chill out and do the things I wanted to do last time.
