Size is everthing and an extra day of weekend does make all the difference. [profile] sarah_mum and I have had a very relaxing day today. Doing very little other than a trip to the supermarket and some garden-related pottering. We needed the break becasue the rest of the weekend was decidedly more hectic. On Friday evening we raced down to the Cotswolds for an important meeting.

We stopped over at Sarah's parents and awoke to superbly cooked Dad Breakfast, Suitably energised we popped into the 'nham for a spot of shoppng and then headed over to Pontypool to spend the rest of the weekend with [profile] jarkman and Jarkwoman. There was metal fettling for both of us and I get to do lots of things I've never done before. All of our efforts were powered by tea, gnger cake and swearing. Engineering at its best! I discovered that driving a lathe is great fun, but some more fiddly jobs are just frustrating. One thing it did bring home to me is that I really do need glasses for close-up work. I'll be sending off for some as soon as my opticians send me my prescription. We finished up by 7pm on Sunday and had a time for quick visit to [profile] aoakley and [profile] red_mel before getting home after 11pm.

A great weekend with some special things to show for it in a few weeks.
