Mayday Weekend

This May-day weekend I had big plans. The weather forecast was really nice and I was going to my family’s summer-house, to find some peace and quiet. Enjoy the sun and try out my new phone camera on the lovely scenery there. This did not happen, because on thursday I got a fever and was sent home from work… I spent the rest of the day sleeping and all of May-day in bed. Being really envious of the people who got to be outside in the sun that was even more brilliant than forecasted.

Luckily I was much better yesterday and got to enjoy a small walk and a little bit of fresh air. Even if I got tired really quickly the feeling of the sun warming my face was lovely and made me feel like the weekend could still be salvageable.

Walk by the lake in sunshine!

In the afternoon we were invited for a barbecue at some friends. So we picked up some fresh berries and ice cream and showed up. To say that we where well fed is an understatement. The lady of the house we visited is an excellent cook. She had made tons of dishes each one as tasty as the next.

Sunshine means BBQ!

So after having been eating for quite a few hours and celebrated that our friends had finished renovating the appartment ot their new house we rolled home and went to bed having eaten a little too much. But there is nothing like good friends, sunshine and lovely food to make you in a good mood after having your weekend hampered by fever. I just hope I get to go to the summer house sooner rather than later!

  1. I’m glad you have recovered from your fever. I’ve just returned from walking my dog. It was raining when I left my flat but had stopped by the time I returned home. I think Sunday will be a changeable day here in the UK. Hope you get to visit the summer house. Kevin

      Today I’m going to a naming party for the newest little member of my extended family.
      Nice to hear the weather cleared up, I prefere to walk when it’s not raining even if that is refreshing at times. Hope the weekend is treating you well.

  2. You do seem to have recovered quickly, thank goodness, but do take care of yourself. 🙂
    It sounds like you are having a truly lovely weekend, even if you missed out on one day. Hugs.

  3. I had one of those bugs in January. Yes, they do take a bit to fully recover and we tend to push too hard. Glad you got to enjoy part of your weekend. Plans rarely go according to our wishes. Guess that’s why we have to be adaptable. Have a great week ahead and get extra rest.
