Granny has a funfilled weekend…..mostly

Hello All.

Miss me?
I missed you lot.

Yes I had a good weekend.
Barring picking up dogpoop, defrosting the deepfreeze and generally cleaning.
None of these things are high on my list of fun stuff.

On Saturday I met three blogging friends for lunch.
Cindy, Tandy and Browniegirl.
It was great to see them all again.
There was quite a bit of giggling.
And a wee bit of gossip.
I am a good person to gossip to.
It goes no further.
I only keep essential things in my memory banks.
I forget almost as soon as I am told something.
The only time I regret this is when someone tells me good joke.

On Saturday evening Mex and I went to see the Mark Lottering show.
Mark is a local comedian.
Very,very funny.
The first half of the show was acts by local talent.
An excellent solo performance by someone whose name I have forgotten.
Then a group of about six or eight guys doing a gumboot dance.
Also very good.
A young girl singing don’t cry for me Argentina.
All in all a very pleasant evening and worthwhile venturing out in the freezing cold.

Yesterday, my son and DIL and my granddaughter and my two stepgrandsons came round.
The adults pushed off leaving the three kids with me.
It crossed my mind that they might be planning not to return.
However, they did.

Oh yes…must show you the dessert I had on Saturday.

It tasted as good as it looked.

Yesterday afternoon Grandson took over my computer so I went and had a nap.
A four hour nap.
I believe in doing things properly.

Hopefully, tonight I will be able to catch up on some of your posts.
