"We stick together"

Nearly 37 years ago three teenagers met on the Scraptoft Campus in Leicester and enrolled on a teacher training course. Over the years they have been bridesmaids and godmothers for each other and have been the first to call when times have got tough.  Today it was time to meet up again at Meadowhall, our favourite shopping haunt( we accosted some poor soul in the m & S caf√© to take the photo - he had never used an iphone before!) , to discuss our next adventure  - our holiday to Verona in August.  Last year we splashed out on a cruise so it's time to rein in the spending!  We are planning a five day mini break - taking in the sights of Lake Garda and Venice, whilst taking in a visit to Juliet's balcony of course!

Tonight will see the monthly meeting of North Somercotes Book Club. Not only do we get to read a range of books ( this month it was the beautiful "The Last Days Of Rabbit Hayes") but we get to eat out with friends and enjoy a free quiz night.

All in all not exactly a slimming world day but a very sociable one.  Mind you I did start with a baked  "French toast" pudding - using wholemeal bread helped to avoid some of the temptations later in the day!

Tomorrow sees the big painting start - the plan is to redecorate the whole house over the year.  I'm enjoying the planning process a wee bit more than I expect to enjoy the doing!


  1. Sounds like lots of fun ahead! Having visited all those places last month with our family, I know you will have a great time! Verona Market sells the most amazing fresh fruit salad in tall glasses for only 3 euros, your diet will be safe that day!

  2. Thank you - I will look out for those x
