Thanks to everyone who wished me a Happy Birthday, both here and on Facebook. I went with Rob and the teens to Corbiere Phare - this is a pic of the view, and my camera is an ancient brick of a thing as well as being fairly useless - where we had a wonderful meal. Then it was back home to visits from friends, the last one leaving at 8.40pm, which was fine as I was relaxing in front of the tv with a glass of the pink bubbly stuff to watch the second - brilliant - episode of Ashes to Ashes.
I've had a relaxing and productive week off, which has been helped no doubt by the weather being so beautifully sunny and fairly warm. As well as managing to study a little each day for my exam - groan - I've also increased the word count on my current WiP from just under 12,000 words to just over 24,000 - hurray.
Today we're out for breakfast down at St Ouens, where I'll be taking Grumps for a quick walk on the beach whilst they order the food. Rob's youngest son is then flying back home to England, and I'll then be going to visit my youngest sis, then on to catch up with my godmother who has just returned from a trip to Las Vegas.
Then it will be back to the shed and my characters who, I'm happy to say, won't stop talking to me and giving me ideas. Next week, it's back to work, but I'm not going to think about that until Monday.
PS. Rob has just come in to show me his son's flight details. He doesn't go back today, it's tomorrow morning! So we've all been woken up early when we didn't need to be. Nevermind, I'm still happy to go out to breakfast, even if getting the teens out of bed has been a little like trying to raise the dead.
