So, hubby was still off from work this week. However, we lost a few days because he had the first of his interviews for 2 internal jobs he had applied for. So that took up one day plus he lost two days preparing tests and presentations for the interview!! Still it will all be worth it if he gets one of the jobs, although it looks as though he may have to wait 2 weeks before finding out if he has been successful or not - this just drags on and on!
Anyway, one of the other days -son had some sickness bug so we had to stay in but finally on Thursday we managed to escape for a day out. Unfortunately, I didnt take any photos! Sorry, a boring post without piccies I know! But we did a trip to London and, after having lunch at Pizza Hut, went to the science museum. We haven't been here for years and I don't know why but it just wasn't as good as we had remembered! It was ok and we spent a couple of hours there but then decided to move on. We chose the Imperial War museum, which we had never been to, but as daughter is doing World War 2 when she goes back to school -thought this would be a good idea. It was brilliant! We all enjoyed it for different reasons.........the boys for the weapons and tanks, daughter for her project and because she loves fashion and me for the interior houses and fashions!
So yesterday, when I saw a 1940's weekend advertised locally in Ramsgate, we decided to go. Thoroughly enjoyed this too and quite a few people were dressed up - infact son said he felt silly not being dressed up! Plus, loved the music, set ups of shops, tanks and stalls - So now, I want to find some more of these to go to - so if anybody knows of any, please let me know!!
Ah I forgot, yesterday morning I went bootsaling and bought...
a lovely wicker hamper, for storing all sorts! at £1.50. And from the same lovely couple
A South African musical xylophone type wooden instrument. My son bought himself some wooden bongo drums a few years ago and since then we have added to this and made a collection - so for £1 he was really chuffed with my purchase!
Also, whilst in Ramsgate I visited good ole Wilkinson and bought some t-towels....
And finally today, we had a stall at a bootsale and made £90 from our junk! Phew, you can rest your eyes now!
