My weekend has been interesting!
On Friday, we finally had our cupboards put up. They didn't quite finish and we've been getting frustrated with people coming to help and not quite finishing. It's a silly state to be in; friend and family coming to help - for free, off their own backs and still getting frustrated. It's just been a long road and we're tired.
When they came back to finish, putting up the final cupboards and the edge trimmings, it looks fantastic. I'm so pleased and these baby steps feel great now. Another step taken, another goal complete.
Saturday, we had a Gin Festival planned. After some trips back and forth to a handy-man store and returning some old bathroom tiles, we got some showers, put on our glad rags (fine, we were smart casual) and got ready for 4 hours of Gin heaven.
We headed to one of our local cities by train, took a slow, stroll alone "The Strand"* in the sun. We arrive pretty early, skipped the queue with our VIP ticket and sampled many, many gins.
That night, I was worse for wear. I was hanging. I drunk far too much. I had a banging headache, had thrown up several times (the first time in a long, long time) and I had a restless sleep - too hot, too cold, too argh-need-to-run-to-the-bathroom-to-be-sick.
After a nice rejuvenating breakfast, I finalised some house stuff to complete our kitchen, met up with a friend and hung out for most of the day. We took a drive out to a lovely village for tea where I ate a delicious Gourmet Goat's Cheese and Cranberry burger. The staff were something to be desired, but the food was phenomenal and the owner was a delight; sharing some local history and general chatting.
Thanks for reading about my weekend. This week, I'm hoping to start working on some treats. Time to change things up and improve things in the world of Craig. Speak soon.
