We had a lovely Bank Holiday Monday with Phil's family. The sun shone most of the day but Phil ended up BBQ-ing in the garage AGAIN as it got very windy and grey. But the meal was wonderful :)
In the evening the girls went to bed by nine and it was just me & Phil...like the old days when the kids were small! We watched an interesting drama about Albert Pierrepoint. I read his autobiography many years ago and was curious to see how he was portrayed by Timothy Spall. I will be thinking about it for a long time, I'm sure. The abiding feeling I'm left with is that very little in life is black and white - just infinite shades of grey.
I was feeling quite sombre this morning, still thinking about the issues the drama had raised in my mind...but then Phil called to telll me that we have got a booking for a wedding we bid for over the weekend, for one of Phil's work colleagues. It was the first time we had put together a bid and I am thrilled it's been accepted!!!
It's the last full week of the summer holidays and I'm making the most of it as I will miss my girls so much when they go back to school!
