My birthday is on Saturday and all being well we plan to spend it at the Brightlingsea music festival. We had a thoroughly lovely time there last year and with a bit of luck the weather will be kind. I haven't even started to pack though and that really isn't like me. Hopefully I will get it done this evening after we have been for a little 'holiday food' shop.
On Wednesday Tony and I are driving down south to stay at my friend Anona's house. I am pulling together a little parcel of home made goodies to give her and I have been a bit of a domestic goddess this morning. After doing the laundry, vacuuming downstairs and washing the kitchen floor I made two pots of strawberry jam to add to the parcel. I am gathering a nice little pile of bits and bobs for the parcel on the spare bed. That motivated me to tidy the spare room and I am staggered how quickly I got it all put straight (ish). Perhaps I need to go to Brightlingsea more often if it makes me come over all houseworkie (y) :-) I have even given the gardens front and back a really good soak. Fingers crossed for it to rain a little while we are away and my lovely neighbour Joan won't need to worry about watering it
