there's been a lot of this......as the weather has been so lovely.
There's been a couple of sessions of ballet....
to prepare for the exam Sunday
Number 2 son was playing in Northants Sunday so he and the builder left early and number 1 son is playing for his club nearby.
I've been driving like a mad woman both Saturday ans Sunday to try to get everywhere on time, I slightly miscalculated today as I decided we needed to leave the cricket before the end to get to the ballet in time. In my muddled brain I calculated we needed an hour and a half to make the 20 minute journey!! Not sure what I was thinking but we were over an hour early (at least we weren't late!).
My speedy driving isn't helped by the fact that I've been driving the builders truck through these very narrow country lanes. He had to take my car to Northants as it's much more fuel efficient. There was a slightly hairy moment when we met a caravan along one of these lanes, I managed to reverse into a ditch but no damage done!
But we did squeeze in a vist here in the middle of the mayhem...
All in all a busy but fun weekend.
Why the title of this post? Well I happened to catch an old episode of "Escape to the Country" on TV on Friday evening and they featured our area of the East Coast - apparently this is the place to be if you want a slower pace of life - shame no one told this family!!
