One Down....One to Go

That's week one gone of my two weeks annal leave.

The week started with a weekend away to Brean and a 70's music extravaganza. Friday evening to Monday morning with wall to wall bands playing from the 70's and lots of vodka. I was joined by my brother, his fiancée, her mum and step-dad and my friend Joy whom I had meet the November before. We all had a brilliant time and are planning to go back again, some sooner than others.

Wednesday saw myself and my daughter and her friend taking the beautiful drive up to Birdland in Bourton on the Water. The Penguins were the main attraction for us all and feeding time was as amusing as ever. A look around the shops, some lunch and an ice cream ended the prefect day.

Saturday saw me having an operation on my mouth which I have been waiting to have for a long time. 3½ hours from start to finish and I'm left looking like a hamster on one side of my face. I have to go back for a check up on Thursday and then in 12 weeks time to have the finishing touches added.

I haven't got any firm plans for my second week but there is talk of going to West Midlands Safari Park. Lets hope the weather stays as nice as it was for my first week.
