The last of the lamb has been turned into sandwiches, and the chocolate mountain has been conquered (all apart from the 1.7kg - just checked that - jar of mini eggs). The books are out on the desks, because after Easter comes exam time: so we were on our own, The Accountant and I, as we set out to enjoy our "something new" this weekend.
It's four years since we first needed a car that was easy on fuel and cheap to insure for the new drivers in the house, and we decided on a little white Fiat 500. Many miles later, the time had come to swap it for a new one: same colour, same numberplate (which we kept because of its lucky combination of letters), same fun to drive. Though four years on, its drivers aren't as keen to be photgraphed as they used to be. You'll have to put up with me instead: wearing, I've just noticed, the same coat and scarf I was photographed in, in Edinburgh, in February. Not much sign of April sunshine here yet, that's for sure. But the grass is green, the daffodils are out, and yesterday we had fun messing about. I can't help wondering what we'll all be doing next time we change this car. Jobs, by then, not exams, maybe?
Wishing you a good week, wherever you are and however you get about about! Last time Deb, Helena, Eileen, Alison, Mitra, Mary-Lou, Cheri, Susanne, Maggie, Ruth, Barbara, Jane, Gail, Ladkyis and Julia all shared a little of their weekend, what was new, what they had learned that they didn't know before. Go on: give 'em a wave! You'd be very welcome to join us. If you are making a memorandum about what's new on Monday, please leave me a comment and I'll be over to pick up a few tips, or cheer, or commiserate, whatever is needed to get us up and running this Monday.
