Bank Holiday Weekend
A quiet weekend - a sunny day - lovely light - people out on the green, the playground and the beach. Captain Metal Detector was out detectoring today, but discovered no Viking hoards. I hobbled off to the meeting - foot very painful to stand on but I could drive OK thank goodness - have spent the rest of the day on the sofa trying to keep my feet up and reduce the swelling. Captain MD helped himself to a cold chicken dinner when he came in and made us cups of tea. So glad I got to the meeting though. The speaker talked a lot about Bible prophecy - especially the amazing prophecy about the fall of the mighty city of Babylon - the Bible even names Cyrus as the one who would conquer it. I am hoping for a quiet week - but one in which I can get out on the field service a bit more than usual. Apparently the supermarkets were very busy on Friday - people stocking up as if the shops were closing for a week. I forgot all about the Bank Holiday and failed to shop, but we have been living happily enough off the chicken I roasted, along with the pork chipolatas.
