Another weekend over. We didn’t actually have much planned but when it came to it we seemed to do quite a lot. On Saturday we went for a walk. We were going to go to a park a few miles away but on the way there saw a sign for another park so went here instead. While we were walking we saw a bag thrown in the bushes and its contents scattered about so we picked it all up and then left it there until we were on our way back and then carried it back to my car. We then went to drop it off at a police station, but the one we went to was closed. So we spoke to a police operator, who was very nice and helpful, and ended up driving quite a long way to a police station that was open and dropped it off. They said they would try and find the owner and return it. I think there had been a lap top in it but there was no sign of that when we found it.
I then went over to my parents’ house yesterday morning and tried to fix my dad’s DVD player. I had no success at all and just ended up disconnecting it all so that mum wouldn’t have to sort it all out if it needed to be taken somewhere to be repaired. My dad, as ever, did nothing towards fixing it and just wanted me to tell him what to do (meaning what mum should do) to get someone to look at it. Anyway, mum gave me some home made cake (she seems to be in a baking phase at the moment) and so that was very nice. It was a Victoria sponge, which is probably my favourite cake (although I am not generally known to turn down any cake).
We also did a major tidy up and thought of lots of things that we need to buy and sort out over the next few weeks. Fortunately G is off over Eater for longer than I am so it should mean that there is time to get people out to do various things.
At least it’s only about three weeks until I go on holiday now.
