Arrrrrggggghhhh! No entries for the whole month of August!
Highlight of the month was the family holiday. Obviously things are still very tight financially but we managed a week away in a cottage in Norfolk, probably one of the cheapest holidays we could have taken
However, for all of this, we had a generally excellent time. Both the cottage and the village it was in were picture-perfect, and just a mile or so away from the beach at Wells-next-the-sea. We had good weather, generally only either sunny or cloudy, but with proper rain only once, we got several trips to the various beaches along the coastline, and I made sure I paddled in the sea on every single day of our stay. I also managed to get out for a few short cycle rides, plus a couple of walks, early in the morning, of course accompained by the camera.
Had fun and games with the car, which took out a couple of mornings to get a tyre firstly looked at, then fixed. Also the screen on my laptop packed up, so I was computerless for the week (no bad thing I suppose). Fortunately Jacqueline let me borrow her laptop in order to get my photos from the camera onto my portable hard drive.
Alice was generally ok, though we had our moments. Frustratingly having been good all week, she wet the bed on our last night there, and there wasn't time to sort it all out, so we had to tell the cottage people. Slightly embarrasing.
Anyway, since this is now all after-the-fact, I won't go into it in minute detail. If you're interested in seeing where we went, the best of the photos are, of course, on Flickr.
Oh, congratulations also to my friends Paul and Theresa, having been together 20-odd years we went to their wedding just before heading off to Norfolk. Very impetuous.
Visit to Romsey Show last weekend, where a good time was had by all. I have a new pedometer which, by the end of the day, showed I had walked just short of 20,000 steps that day. Again there'll be photos of that too, when I get around to publishing them.
Aside from that it is work, work, work. Corporation Tax is due at the end of October and this year I may need to take out a loan to cover it.
