Girly Weekend




We had a fabulous girls weekend, from the moment we stood on Truro platform waiting for the train – Molls shaking somewhat, as it was only her 2nd train ride. But once she'd jumped aboard the train (like a true pro), she snorted up all available crumbs and settled down at my feet.

Av met us 2 hours later, then we had a great walk at the Water Meadows at Dartington, and sorted the first part of the world out. I cooked that night (roasted vegetables with cheese), washed down with plenty of Sauvignon. Bit of a wakeful night as Molls rushed to the door everytime anyone went to the loo, but all was well.

On Saturday afternoon we went up to Dartmoor and did a circular walk around Haytor, the quarry and Saddle Tor (see pictures above) and it couldn't have been better weather – sunny, breeze and the ground is just right: dry but not too hard. I shall remember that walk for a long time.

That night we called in to say Happy 60th to my friend Annie and had a glass of wine with all of them, then up to the pub for supper. After another long walk on Sunday morning, Molls and I got on the train and came back for a rest.

What a fab weekend – really makes you realise how important good friends are. Cheers, Av! Here's to the next one.

By and large, we are both very happy with our lives, but while we walked, we discussed what we would change if we could.

So that's today's question – if your fairy godmother waved her magic wand, what would would you change about your life?

Sounds like a good weekend.

Hm, difficult question. I wouldn't change anything... except maybe just a BIT more financial freedom!

Talli - yes I know the feeling!

Sounds like a lovely weekend!

I wouldn't change a thing about my life, now I've retired. :)

You don't need to be a fairy godmother to guess what I'd choose.

Ak - that's very good to hear!

No, Addy. Glad you were able to make that weekend and that Snoopy is getting better, though.

A lovely weekend but a dangerous question... I think I'd be afraid to ask for anything, although the chance to buy my children a house each would be hard to turn down.

Yes, it does sound like a lovely weekend you all had.

I don't know what I would change to be honest; perhaps I would ask her to take away my epilepsy but apart from that I'm contented with what I have.

Great photos, and what a brave girl Molly is to jump on the train like that.

Glad you had such a great time.

The only thing I'd change is to be published, nothing else though.

Flowerpot said...

Chris - that's a lovely choice!

Flowerpot said...

CJ - I'm glad to hear that, though living with epilepsy can't be easy. Take care. x

Flowerpot said...

Debs - wasn't she brave? I was very proud of her! Yes, I'd love to get my novels published too. And husband's health to improve - and I'll stop there!
