I had rather expected last week to go V E R Y V E R Y V E R Y slowly. The week before had been a three day working week. The week before that had been a no day working week. Last week was a five day working week and I had thought it would be a bit wearisome and a bit long.
In fact, until around 10:00 on Friday morning, it whooshed past so quickly that I hardly saw it. Nothing very interesting or exciting happened (or if it did, then I didn't notice it!). But whatever did happened happened in a blur.
Then it got to 10:00 on Friday morning and time more or less seemed to grind to a halt. It felt like the longest day ever!! It took for ever and ever and ever to get to going home time.
Then it was time to go home. And then the weekend vanished in a brief puff of smoke!!!
It was quite a pleasant weekend, mind. The weather was lovely. A bit chilly and cloudy on Sunday morning, but apart from that very pleasant. We did a bit of shopping and a bit of gardening and a bit of pottering. The Builder watched the Grand Prix. We did a bit of eating and a bit of drinking. Nothing exciting, apart from the fireworks on Saturday evening, celebrating the opening of the new rugby and cricket club house down on the recreation ground. I watched them from the bedroom window. Other than that, nothing particularly noteworthy. But I did rather enjoy it.
So here we are, once again, poised on the brink of a Brand New Week. I wonder what this week has in store for us. I wonder how quickly it will go by.
Marlo enjoys sitting in the sunshine, on the little wall around the fish pond. He sits there, and he sleeps there, and he stretches out there. I don't think he enjoyed it quite as much on the day last week when he rolled over - straight into the pond!! Fortunately he got out again with no trouble. But he was a bit wet. I wonder what the fish made of it all :-P
