A busy week.

 On Tuesday we went to our Art Appreciation Group where one of the members gave a talk on Fernand Leger ,a French painter.He lived from 1881 until 1955.HE was known as a cubist and sometimes a tub it's as he often painted limbs as tubes.Alan gave a very interesting talk with lots of images for us to look at.
Members take it in turn to give talks(not me!).My OH is doing the June presentation when he will give a talk on Goya.
From this I raced to the dentists for a filling.In the morning someone had suggested Steak Night at Wetherspoons .Delicious steak in good company ,seven of us ,and no cooking.
Our daughter was one week on from her hand operation so we went over to take her out to a garden centre for lunch.Her first time out.The hand is healing nicely but she can't drive yet and another two weeks off work.We then did our usual school pick up and tea for the grandchildren and us.We were shattered when we got back home.
Thursday was my Reading Group.We were discussing Rough Music by Patrick Gale.Most of us felt it was not his best book.I bought C a ukulele for his birthday in December and he has really taken to it.He has joined the U3A band and had his first gig on Thursday which he really enjoyed.Playing in your first band at 76!!!!
On Friday morning I always meet a friend for coffee and we put the world to rights  and then in the evening it was Quiz Night.It was really had but we came joint second which was a good result.
Saturday was coffee in the morning with friends and then gardening in he afternoon.
On Sunday we had a long phone hat with our granddaughter who has just come back from seven weeks travelling in Laos,Cambodia,Vietnam and Thailand.

I have had a nice quiet day today pottering in the garden and reading.

Easter weekend.

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend.We tend to stay off the roads as it can be very busy with people heading to the coast.Saturday we had coffee with friends which lasted more than two hours as some left and more came,
Yesterday we were invited to our daughter's for lunch.We had already left Easter eggs for Emily and Ruby but went with other gifts.A jigsaw for them to do over the school holiday,flowers for Sarah and treats for her and Mike.I also took some primula a for them to plant in the garden.Sarah has been feeling down lately and I thought a bit of gardening may cheer her up.A couple of months ago she had flu followed by pneumonia and didn't stay off work long enough to recover properly,in fact less than a week.She is a Type 1 diabetic and has been since she was four so everything is more complicated.She is gong to hospital next week to have two ops on her right hand.She has Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Duputrens Contracture.Hopefully they can be done under local anaesthetic.Yesterday she seemed a lot brighter.I think she has just been exhausted.She is s Primary Scool teacher.We had a lovely day .Mike cooked a super meal and we spent all afternoon playing games and laughing a lot.I do worry about Sarah and her health.

Today we woke up to snow!Three inches of it.I am really fed up with this weather but hopefully it is supposed to get better later this week.
Do you worry about your children ? How do men not worry.I wish I knew the secret.
