The End of Summer and Beyond
And once that was done it was a case of then deciding to use the glitter effect paint and we are very happy and glad we did it that way.
Socially we have been out and about a few times, including an overnight pub stopover at a little pub near Derby which was nice to get out of Nottingham again for a night.
It was nice to get away with friends again and with just the 6 of us, this time it was a bit more relaxing and we spent 2 nights there again.
With it being a 3 1/2 hour drive from Nottingham, and also me working till 14:30, it meant we didn't arrive till early Friday evening and had to leave Sunday afternoon.
On Tuesday it was a trip to see our friends Mark & Karen, who we haven't seen since we went travelling away back in 2017 and was nice to catch up with them.
And finally the Wednesday was spent having dinner with Ian & Michala, we had a few drinks and sadly we had work the next day for everyone but Sadie!
The reason we squeezed 3 dinner trips in during the the week, was due to running out of time to see everyone as Sadie has now flown over to France to see her family, for the first time in 12 months and she is spending a couple of weeks there with them.
And this weekend I have driven up to Scotland to see my family for the first time since December, where I will spend 4-5 days, before heading back down for hopefully one final camping trip of the year back at New House Farm.
