I hope you all had a nice bank holiday weekend, whether you were working or not. Mine consisted of:
*Hanging out in a warehouse watching a theatre show/gig about an Italian Publisher – Neon Neon’s Praxis Makes Perfect. Loved it. We had to wear red and bring a book to swap – I took Dharma Bums and ended up with a book of jokes about Mouldy Mummies.
*Visiting Hangfire Smokehouse, a new BBQ place at a pub not far from us. Not a natural destination for a vegetarian maybe, but their lentil burger was amazing, as were the chips and slaw. And there was even the option of halloumi. Yum. We may be back…
*More house sorting, which meant a trip to the inevitable big blue and yellow box, followed by ice cream on Penarth Pier. And then my last shift at work!
*A picnic on The Kymin, overlooking Monmouth. In the 18th century, some of the rich of Monmouth formed the Monmouth Picnic Club and built a roundhouse on top of the hill, to protect their picnics from the wind. Genius idea. Luckily we didn’t need to seek cover, as the weather was gorgeous. I love getting to use my picnic set far too much.
