Drawbridge Day!

No one in and no one out! We will have a drawbridge day tomorrow. This week is a hard one and it has nothing to do with a certain car door. By the way, we are still talking about that door so talking is a good thing. 

Do you know this term? Rosie, who writes a wonderful blog, often includes in her emails to me English expressions which I love to collect. Her blog can be found right here.

She and her husband have these drawbridge days closing out others and letting the rest of the world goes by. That is exactly what Jack and I will be doing as we prepare for the week's ending. We will enjoy ourselves as the world just waits on this eve. 

Thanks, Rosie for this wonderful metaphor. It feels safe and loving inside the Malloy castle. 

So raise that bridge and lower that metal gate. It is time. 



  1. I love this! I need a castle, a drawbridge, and a metal gate, I think I need about six of these drawbridge days of yours and Rosie's!

  2. Wishing you two a wonderful time shut off in your own little world, Mere.

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

  3. Hummmm, sounds like a perfect opportunity for the two of you to connect and re-establish your lifestyle. Enjoy your down time and all that goes with this.

  4. Hi Meredith, what a great idea! Enjoy your day :)


  5. Have a lovely, indulgent, day in Castle Malloy.

  6. Hi Meredith, we have those days too, have fun ;)
    love Jan, xx

  7. It is a sweet thing to shut the world out for a time. Take good care of the lord of your castle, Mere.


  8. Those kind of days are always lovely! I love what Rosie calls them! Enjoy your time with your spanky man, Meredith! :) Many hugs,

    <3 Katie

  9. Certainly good timing. Enjoy.

  10. Hope this makes your week so much better!
