Weekends

We had a good weekend. We went to a barbecue on Saturday, which was very nice. I was supervising a dog most of the day due to some young children being there – and lots of food. I did get told off a couple of times for not keeping enough of an eye on the dog so she still managed to lick some small children on a couple of occasions. I don’t think I will be signing up to be the next Dog Whisperer any time soon.

We went for a picnic in Hyde Park yesterday with my sister and nephew. We met at the Princess Diana Memorial, which was actually very good and we ended up spending ages there. You can just roll your trousers up and walk through the water and enjoy it. My nephew loved it and we had lots of fun there. We enjoyed the picnic too and ate lots and I’d brought a flask of coffee and some cake as well. Very civilised. Conkers had started to fall from the trees and my nephew then had a mission to find as many as possible. As ever, it is the minor and somewhat impromptu things that ended up being the highlight for him.

Anyway, it was a good weekend. This weekend coming up G and I are staying on a rather posh London hotel (for free) and are really looking forward to that. Roll on next weekend…

Conkers. Wow. I love conkers!

You seem to love your barbecues!

Hope you have a fab time in the posh hotel. Mrs K and I are indulging in some poshness ourselves... we are off to Monaco on wednesday,

Kahless - you would get on well with my nephew then. I did try and explain that they will be even better in a couple of months' time

Barbecues are good, particularly when other people cook them.

Monaco - how exciting! I hope you have a great time.

Conkers good, splashing in water better! My girls would have loved that.

Sarah - my nephew certainly enjoyed splashing in the water as well as the conkers. he absolutely soaked me at one point - and let me tell you that water was rather cold! It was a lovely day out.
