Before this weekend, people kept asking me what I had planned for the weekend. I think it must have sounded odd to them when I said that Jack and I were working. Bank holidays don’t effect our work as volunteers, in fact, we are usually more busy.
But I did fit some extra things in…including…a bra-fitting (which is always traumatic, but it feels great to have bras that fit really well), attending a Christian service with a group of friends which was very enjoyable, and having supper and drinking wine with some friends of ours that we have not seen since before the Pandemic.
I had forgotten how funny they were! It was so good for me to enjoy their company. My we laughed. And when I related some of the little challenges I have encountered with my new job, well their humour just had me shaking with laughter.
