Plus, I could not look at those bananas going off in the fruit bowl any longer so, two banana cakes made.
I've also gotten some filing and completed two forms that must be sent off this week; as well as applied for my Tes£o vouchers towards my OU course for this October - A363, Advanced Creative Writing. All of us on the A215 Survivors are gagging for this next course to start and soooo pleased that, at last, the registration is open. Luckily, I also have Individual Learning Account money to use (as I live in Scotland) so, though we're poor at the moment, we are fed and my brain will be, too, with the next course. Just got to get going proper on the current course. Ho hum.
Speaking of food, we went off to Oban for a long weekend last week. We both needed the break, to be honest and were not disappointed with the weather - cold, wet and stormy. And, unfortunately, as Oban is not famous for its food, we were'nt disappointed with that either.
However, this was the view from our bedroom window, which was a joy to wake up to, even if the sun was not shining.
I took this while sitting in my bed, with a good old morning cuppa and, there was a car park, road and pavement between us and the sea, but the ferry (which was off to the Isle of Mull, with the Isle of Luing in the picture) seemed so close to us!
The food in the hotel was apalling, except for the morning porridge, and the cooked breakfast they served was 'A Full English!' I don't know how they get away with it. Though we were told that the company is English owned. However, we had a lovely, lovely rest and the staff were more than helpful at the Best Western Hotel - I raise my glass!
But, the very best meal we had was lunch, on the beach, in the car!
With a hot cuppa, you can't beat it.
I had a very busy week this week, what with some babysitting etc. and am k-nackered, but oh, so pleased to be up and about again.
I am due for an MRI scan on my back shortly, which will, hopefully, tell me what might be amiss and what I can do about it.
Meanwhile, it's onwards and upwards. At blimmin' last.
