A short sweet summer break...

Another week has gone by...and, yet again, it seems to have gone by pretty fast! Pretty fast because I have been working - that takes care of my days – and doing a lot of activities during the evenings with my family who were visiting for nine days. We have been on a river cruise and I really wish now that the next winning numbers of the National Lottery will be mine as I want one of them houses overlooking the Thames. :-) It must be quite amazing to open the curtains and see the water, and perhaps go for a boat ride to relax. We also visited Hampton Court Palace and Gardens. If you have not heard of it before, it not only tells you 500 years of history of royal Britain through its Tudor walls and tapestries, but its garden also has a maze, a world-famous one in this instance. And yes, we did get lost a couple of times before finding our way to the centre! We also drove to North Wales for a trip to the seaside and the mountain lakes before catching up with friends for our annual get-together. It was a huge gathering with more than double the number of people we were initially expecting. And, it truly was a fun, friendly, familial and traditional affair with lots and lots of exotic dishes. The weather was a bit disappointing but it could not dampen our spirits – metaphorically and otherwise. And, before I forget, if you are in Mid Wales, do pay the Centre for Alternative Technology a visit – it is a place full of innovative ideas that one can implement to reduce our impact on the planet. And a place bound to entertain your kids…and you! I am going to buy a lottery ticket now... :-)
