First proper road trip in a while

Its a bank holiday weekend in the UK and the start of half term school holidays. Its often the first real getaway opportunity but with some Covid restrictions in place, or at least limiting some activities, it was touch and go whether we’d be able to go anywhere.

We haven’t seen step daughter #1 since March 2020 for a fleeting meet up and the last time we came to stay with them would have been around Christmas 2019. Lots has happened since then.

It was lovely to be able to take a trip to see her and have a proper catch up. She had an exam on Friday afternoon so we we’re instructed not to arrive before 5pm. We got there about 5.30pm. The sun was shining and it was warm so it was great to be able to sit out in the back garden with a cuppa and have a good chat.

E is a great cook and baker too so no surprises that she’d made a lasagne and all she needed to do was shove it in the oven.

Before we knew it it was 11pm and she was clearly tired and getting uncomfortable so we all headed to bed.

It was lovely to be here and see her bump before due date in July. I’m glad she seems to be well throughout her pregnancy and everything is going as it should.

Looking forward to the rest of the weekend wandering around Hardwick Hall, curry night and good company for the rest of the weekend.

Whatever you’re doing I hope you have a great weekend.

  1. Aww, lovely. Have a great time. Say hello from us. We’re also taking our first trip out today to see family that we haven’t seen physically since September. ‘We are family’, as the song says 🤣🎵
