Weekend catch up

Kieran went off to school and I got ready for my weekend away with my friends, Jayne, Millie (Jayne's daughter) and Chrissy.
We were going to Woolacombe in North Devon for the weekend.
I got my bag sorted and left around 4:00pm and made my way to Jayne's.
We left a dry day in Plymouth to a fairly sunny day in Woolacombe. We decided to go out to eat and went to a place we saw when we came into Woolacombe. We walked in and walked back out again, it was like something out of deliverance.
We found a lovely little place called the Chichester and settled in to order our food. I had made arrangements to meet my lovely friend, Rita, as she lives in North Devon, it was so lovely to see her and her friend, Lila. Jayne and Rita gave us renditions of the ging, gang, gouly tune as they were both Brownies and Guides. It was so funny listening to them sing the verses, much to the amusement of the man behind us.
We had our meal, a good catch up with Rita and then back to the caravan.
We got our pyjamas on and wrapped ourselves in a blanket and a cuppa before going of to bed.
Saturday morning we all got dressed and decided to take a walk to the beach. It was a beautiful day, blue skies and sunshine. Millie had great fun paddling in the sea.
We had lunch in on the sea front and then got a bus back to the caravan park, Twitchen house.
As soon as we got back the heavens opened, it poured with rain non stop, right through the night so it was out in the rain for something to eat and then back and pyjamas on. We know how to holiday : )
Sunday morning it was blue skies again. We packed up our things for when we leave.
We went into Ilfracombe for a wander around and to have lunch, it is such a beautiful place.
I used to come to Woolacombe with Siobhan and Richard before I divorced their dad, it brought back some very happy memories.
After lunch, we made our way back to the caravan and packed the car and headed home.
It was wonderful to be with such lovely friends, the weekend was so relaxing, I felt like I had been away for weeks.

This week is chemo week so back to reality. I will see my oncologist on Wednesday and will discuss what happens next, I am sure chemo day will be Friday. Bring it on, Theo your days are numbered!!!
