It’s kind of ironic that the best of the weather this bank holiday weekend was on Saturday – really warm and sunny – and I was in the theatre for 6 hours. Not that I begrudge Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials anything at all for the pleasure! 🙂

Today though, was more March than May; cold and grey, and damp and squally. We did venture out briefly but only to take a turn around the estate and buy some washing up liquid, before returning to our bank holiday activities. For Emma, this was making another 5 metres of bunting for the wedding, and for myself it was some quiet time writing catchup journal entries and scanning my parents’ ‘Life Before Children’ album. It’s been a surprisingly pleasant day.
