Apologies for my leave of absence over the last month, or so. There have been a few reasons why.
To begin with, we had a little trip to Nerja (Spain). Nerja is one of the prettiest places I have visited. I’m currently putting together a post with lots of pics showing you where we stayed, dined and relaxed, just in case you are thinking of a trip to Europe, yourself.
I have been working, or “getting myself back, out there”, if you like. If you have read my “About Me” page, you will know that I’m now retired, apart from when I’m called upon from my last place of work to help out when needed.
Of course, this hasn’t been happening much at all over the last couple of years, due to COVID. I’m usually called upon three to four times a year and mostly with the same group of people who I have got to know a little bit.
What I love about this temporary work situation, apart from the extra money earned is, as a band of older workers, we are there to share our experience and knowledge, and to get the job done. And, for this short period of time, the terms and conditions are slightly different. For example, we don’t get pulled into everyday work politics, which is great.
We are also undertaking some major work on our home in the coming weeks. The roof is about to be replaced (big expensive job) and some rendering work done, as well as paintwork updates, too! Oh, the joys!
Now onto today’s post…….I was hoping that the sun loungers would be out along with my summer finery!! No such luck! Our good old UK weather has been seasonably colder with a lot of rain, which has meant strapless summer dresses are slow in making an appearance!! I have been wearing a few dresses, lately (in defiance) – layering with cardigans and blazers. I do hope this changes soon and we experience some warmer weather, as it cheers everyone up. This is what I have been wearing over the last couple of weeks, mainly to keep warm!
