yes that is a BIG WOW what a nice weekend we have had.
It was a late night on Friday night as i was picking Lewis up from his school leavers ball at The Kilhey Court at 01:00. he came out absolutely buzzing from it. I must say though that all the lads & girls looked very grown up in their suits & gowns.
Saturday was a lazy morning before we went over to Altrincham for the annual festival. We weren’t in time for the parade but managed a walk around the festival field. Well it was well attended due to the sun being out but it certainly was not as good as I remember when I was a child growing up.
We parked up at Mum & Dads before we headed off to the festival field, then returned later for a chat hoping we had missed the Wimbledon Ladies Final – which we hadn’t as rain had stopped play.
Lewis had had a telephone call off the Head Chef where he has managed to get an apprenticeship advising him of his rota for the coming week. Again Lewis was on a high & looking forward to working & of course earning some money.
Later on Saturday afternoon we called over to see Sam & Matt as it’s Matt’s birthday this week. Sam looks bigger than ever now with only about 8 weeks to go until baby is due. Even though Sam looks big she looks really healthy. Matt was busy as usual cleaning up & then spending time fixing his van. Later in the afternoon Drew & Fran caught up with us too.
Fran kindly brought some home-made jammy dodgers for me. Fran they were delicious nom nom nom.
Saturday night was spent watching a little TV.
I also caught up with Le Tour (http://www.letour.fr/indexTDF_us.html) once they’d all gone to bed to see Bradley Wiggins manage to get hold of the maillot jaune (yellow jersey), here’s to 2 more weeks of racing & hopefully keeping hold of it at the end of July in Paris.
Sunday was similar to Saturday wheer i was 1st up & spent time looking for safety shoes for Lewis for work – not an easy task on a Sunday but after a trip to Wigan we found some in Bolton.
Later Sunday afternoon I took the trampoline down in the garden & packed it away ready for selling on ebay.
I then watched Andy Murray get beat by Roger Federer in the Mens Wimbledon Final.
