Awe you guys!! I have had such a lovely weekend, it has (as usual) flown by. My mum, her partner, Reg and my grandma came to stay on Saturday night and it was so lovely to see them all. Although I am regularly in Bournemouth, they struggle to get up to us in Bristol as often because of work, and grandma hasn’t been up since our first Christmas here.
I spent the day on Saturday cleaning and sorting the house in anticipation for our guests arrival. They didn’t arrive until about 7pm so we sat straight down to eat the yummy spag bowl I had been preparing and I spent quality time catching up with my family, hosting in my own home. Grandma even grew to like Logan, which is great progress since he’s been the reason for her lack of visiting since we got him. She’s just not a dog person, which is fine (Puggy is about her limit) but she thought he was lovely by the time they left. We did ask him to be on his best behaviour!
Yesterday morning we enjoyed a lovely walk through Leigh Woods, Logan spent most of his time flying through the forest (he’s my very own Jacob!) whilst we strolled through the trees over the autumn leaves covering the path under foot. We worked up quite an appetite, luckily Brad had stuck a chicken in the oven before we left so we feasted on a well earned roast dinner when we got back, before it was time to say our good byes. It’s always sad to see mum and grandma leave but I had a wedding to prepare for with the photo booth, so I took a nap, had a shower and got myself ready to head over the bridge to Forest of Dean for a remembrance Sunday wedding in Clearwell castle.
You know what they say a sunday well spent brings a week of content! I hope you had a great weekend and have a wonderful week!
