I'm sending a wave to Sian and all the happy Monday bloggers. We need a bit of cheerfulness with all the rain we have had this weekend. I'm joining in her meme to think about what we have learnt or done that is new this weekend.Well the first new thing happened on Friday afternoon. It meant an anxious wait for mum and dad whilst youngest daughter kept us in suspense. Now however it is OFFICIAL we have a new driver in the family and I have become a retired taxi driver!
I know for sure that the anxiety won't stop there!
Friday evening saw me going off to a new venture in the village hall. A games evening designed with the idea of giving villagers a chance to socialise and learn new games. I was in charge of the Newmarket table. I have played this since I was a youngster but had to learn the rules of the night which varied somewhat from our own family rules.
A great time was had by all with all ages from under 10 years to over 70 mixing together to play. There were all sorts of games to learn from Uno, to Chase the Lady to Shed to Yahtzee and that is just a few.
Saturday was a day for taking the girls shopping. Well kind of taking because the new driver took the wheel and the more experienced sister gave instructions from the back seat (not always gratefully received!). My role was the Mastercard to purchase or help purchase new outfits for something happening next weekend! More about that NEXT Monday.
Have a great week and hopefully all this rain will stop soon.
