we set off just after 9.30 and arrived home in time for lunch, just over 3 hours from door to door.
Not a bad journey, until we got on the A1, just outside Grantham a lorry had shed a tyre so it was blocking one lane, its a 2 lane road at that point so all the traffic was trying to get into one lane.
Bright sunshine when we left, we got a heavy hail shower just after we got off the A1 but by the time we got to the bungalow the sun was shining again.
Car unloaded and everything put away. We had some lunch, I put a fleece blanket in the washer, its out on the line now, will finish it off in the dryer.
Whilst I was outside I had a quick look at the back garden, lots of bits popping their heads up. The Crown Imperial is now right out the bells have opened, resisted the urge to smell it, I know from past experience it stinks!! Some of the daffs had suffered in the wind, so I picked them, dead headed some of the others. The grass needs cutting in the back.
The plants we bought whilst away travelled home ok, everything, including the plants we had inside, have had a good watering and are now back in the plant house. The only thing that has not germinated are the leeks, DB says we will go to Aldi in Bingham next Thursday and he will get leeks from the market.
Its brrrrrr in the house, so I have lit the fire, put the sitting room heater back on until the weather warms up a bit.
We enjoyed our break away, especially watching those huge ships coming in and out loaded with containers. We have decided that our next break we will look either for a cottage or a B & B. Not sure where it will be though.
The village is quiet as usual, the car park and field at the village hall has a caravan rally on it, more than 30 when we came by earlier.
DB is playing bowls tomorrow afternoon, I am going to do some work on the quilt I took with me and never touched.
After this holiday weekend life will return to normal.
