Because I work full time having bank holidays is a special treat and this weekend especially as we had Friday and today (Monday) off work. But the change of pattern confuses my brain. In the UK we changed to British Summer Time this weekend, the clocks were supposed to go forward on Saturday night, but in this house we put them forward on Friday night. I think this was because Friday felt like Saturday to me and I convinced T to alter the clocks. Consequently we spent the whole day on Saturday in a different time zone to everyone else!
I’ve had a busy weekend though. Lots of art on Friday, on Saturday we went to the local DIY store. We couldn’t understand why there was hardly anyone there, but now realise it was because we arrived just after it had opened. Then I spent the rest of the day breaking up a large lump of concrete so we can replace the rotten wooden gate post with a concrete one. Oh my that was hard work! It totally wore me out and I had a hot bath and realy night that day. Yesterday I also felt exhausted all day but I went to a Cemetery Open Day in another town on the Island and then visited my parents in the afternoon. T had a go at breaking up the other piece of concrete holding in the other gate post, but it was too difficult for him. We have been wondering if any of our friends have a pneumatic drill, it doesn’t seem likely does it? Today I’ve had time for more art :-).
The weather this long weekend has been bright and sunny, but still very, very cold, I’m beginning to think I’d like to emigrate to a warmer climate, but then there are the cats to consider…
Talking of the cats, the Bengal Boys were three years old this weekend and had a special fish supper to celebrate. For the past 6 months there has been a bit of a power struggle going on between them as to who is Top Cat. I wish they would sort it out because I don’t like it when they squabble. They are both still very sweet, but not with each other.
Early this afternoon we were visited by our friend Russ who we have known for at least 30 years but hardly ever see. He said, “I was just passing so I thought I’d drop in and see you”. He stopped and had a cup of tea with us and said he noticed we had been breaking out the concrete by the gate posts. T explained what problems we are having and Russ said “I’ve got a pneumatic drill I can lend you”, he went away and has just called back to deliver it. It seems so unlikely that that could happen all I can say is “Thank you Universe and Russ”!!!

Have a good week and I’ll see you all soon.
