Woke later than usual so a relaxing start to the day and chatted to K whilst I ate some toast, then gave myself a pedicure and put nail varnish on (didn’t bother last summer!). It was set to be a glorious day so I then headed to Portobello whilst the tide was out and, armed with an iced coffee and another Maggie O’Farrell novel to listen to (‘Instructions for a Heatwave’ - seemed apt!) I walked for a couple of hours along and around the beach, then had another lazy time lying in the sand before returning home via the supermarket. Once home I started some ironing and made the bed up with fresh linen, made a batch of brownies for the office (bit gooey!) and got ready to go to hazelh’s for a BBQ supper. Mrhazelh was on splendid form at the coals and we had a very jolly evening with their friends K&J too, swapping stories of journeys, adventures, bloopers and hopes for the return of live performances.
Once I got home I was delighted to find an email from Trainline saying they’d refund my extra tickets for the coming weekend as they could see it had been a mistake. WHAT a relief!! I could go to bed relaxed :)
