Well My Lovelies, this really should have been the post where I told you all about my adventures in Whitby. About the beautiful sunny weather, gorgeous apartment overlooking the sea, the great company, food and good wine....how the weekend had done me good, complete de stress!
But, I'm afraid, it just wasn't meant to be, Whitby didn't happen! As we were packing up the car to leave, my friends little dog, Alfie, got out the house and was hit by a car. Luckily he wasn't killed, but he is still very poorly.
Little Bea too was ill, with a tummy bug, so all in all not the weekend we had in mind! We did however manage a little 'de stress' during the weekend. As you can imagine, we both felt pretty glum on Saturday, not as glum I hasten to add, as Alfie....or Little Bea, who was languishing on the sofa. So that afternoon, when we knew Alfie was going to be ok....and Little Bea had managed to keep some food in her tummy, we took off to the cinema.
We went to watch Pride, and I must say, it was one of the most uplifting, hilarious films I've ever seen. We laughed through the whole film, except of course, the sad bits, where we sobbed....not brilliant when you've only popped the smallest amount of tissues in your bag!
We sang along to the 80s tunes and reminisced at the fashions.....and then at the end of the film we clapped and cheered. Hooray for Gay Rights, hooray for the miners, hooray for the good in human beings! You get my drift. I will add at this point, there were only 9 people in the cinema, and 7 of them were very quiet!
We followed this with a bite to eat....and something very nice to drink, so not a complete disaster.
So yes, not quite what I had in mind, but then I know all about how things can change, and how it feels that when Christmas has been cancelled, you make the most of that one present, you just happened to buy in the January sales!
So these are my plans for today, reading and a bit of crochet, and Whitby, well we will try again soon.....we don't give up easily!
Bye For Now,
Ada :) xxx
