It’s hard to believe that today is the first of March. I’ve enjoyed a very lazy Sunday taking time to relax and recharge ready for the week ahead. My day has been spent in a very leisurely fashion enjoying the sunshine and burying myself in a Jeffrey Archer novel.
The months are whizzing past and soon my interlude in Spain will come to a close. I’ve already started to vaguely consider what I shall do post June and to be honest, I’m not sure precisely what it is I’d like to do but no doubt something interesting will turn up.
I’m really looking forward to heading to the UK at the end of this month for the Semana Santa (Holy Week) – equivalent of our Easter – break and will be in Yorkshire. Whilst my original plan was to head to Portugal with my very old friends from Darwin, I’ve now changed plans as Mum is going to be in the UK. I’m one of those lucky enough to still have my parents so I’ve got to take every opportunity to spend time with them when I can.
It’s been a very long time since I was last in UK so looking forward to visiting York, Knaresborough and all the other old haunts from yesteryears as well as catching up with old friends and family. Just a shame I will not be there in time for the Old Rishworthian reunion in London so was unable to accept the invitation to be guest speaker. I will however be looking forward to visiting the Masons Arms and Bay Horse of which I have many memories. They’ll be the subject of another blog after my visit.
