It was lovely to be collected by my friend Paul and we chatted non-stop to Saffron Walden, Essex, where I met up with Trisha for the first time in 13 years. After a cuppa and a chat, I was off to stay with Debs and Dave in Grundisburgh, Suffolk where Ella & Kate were waiting for me. The girls had been staying there for a few days and it was so good to see them. We stayed for another 4 nights, visited a few places in the area and saw a float procession on a lake one evening followed by a great firework display.
Back at Mum's for a week but unfortunately the weather wasn't too good so we didn't get to go out and about as much as we would have liked. The girls were happy to be back with their cousin Caitlin who has spent most of her summer holiday with them. I did manage to catch up with quite a few friends and family for pub dinners, teas & lunches during the week so that was fun.
Normally during August I am preparing for the annual school fair which is on the first Sat in September so it was quite nice to be doing something else for a change! I have still been busy baking though as I suggested a tea, coffee and cake stand at Andy's memorial match on Sunday! Don't want to see another cup cake for a while but we are all really looking forward to it...
