AWOL - Day 150 - MESSY and 151 - GROCERIES

Well have you missed me? I have been here, clicking away but 2 hot, busy and exhausting days when by the time I got to my computer (which keeps crashing...think it's on it's way out !) I just wanted my bed!..sorry
Day 150 - MESSY
Xanthe today and too hot to be indoors and garden is all tidy and didn't feel like having a mess inside or out. LOL!! that was the word for today!! So we went to town by bus and had breakfast and I did some retail therapy and then we came home and got in the car and went to our local hospice Open Garden for lunch and a wander then back to their village for the school run at 3.15.
 I then went to the GP for a check up for 6mths more tabs, BP was fine...thank goodness and home to think about messy. 
The evening was spent ringing Canada to first talk to Sue's friends for the first time since she died and to ask about sending floers for the funeral and then ringing the florist in her tow. I am happy now all that has been sorted.
Well I have done mess around our house and now both the house and garden are straight. I really hate getting my hands messy so found a photo at my last retreat doing 'messy play' with distressing inks. I just had to wear plastic gloves as I hated the mess on my hands LOL!!, note the one finger gingerly holding the paper!!!
 Here is a collage of Xanthe and the open garden we went to.
 Day 151 - GROCERIES
Another sunny day and DH is taking me out for the day. We call these days out together, bonding days!
We went for coffee to a garden centre nr Battle where Peter enjoyed a scone and jam and I found some plants just fell into my basket!
 This garden centre has a wonderful farm shop where they sell delicious upmarket products which I just like to browse!! Well I got my photo(s) for today.

 We then went on towards Eastbourne. The weather was strange, hot, sunny with blue skies inland and the cold sea mist swirling in from the sea so instead of Eastbourne marina for lunch we stopped at one of Peter's Fisheries
We then continued into the town and bought tickets for Chicargo at the Congress Theatre for next week and then more retail therapy a top for me and food for the weekend as we are entertaining Sat night and off to 2 Jubilee functions on Sat and Sun!!
Last night was church housegroup and after watching a recording of Apprentice until 11, too late to post
